The St. Louis Blues have been struggling to find their offensive balance. While the STL line continues to roll and score on a nightly basis, the rest of the key players have been mostly silent. I already touched on the fact Paul Stastny has been off to a slow start, but other skaters (T.J. Oshie, […]
It was an incredible run, but Jay Bouwmeester’s Iron Man streak has ended. After 737 consecutive games, Bouwmeester is forced to miss Sunday’s contest against Winnipeg due to a lower-body injury. Bouwmeester’s 737-game streak was the longest in all of sports. Considering how common injuries are in hockey and how physical the sport can be, […]
Expectations were pretty high when the Blues announced Paul Stastny would be joining the team. Fans expected Stastny to jump right in and be the player in the middle of the ice the team has been lacking. They hoped Stastny would bring balance to the St. Louis offense and make the team’s offense a bit […]
Get your skates ready! The St. Louis Classic returns to Steinberg Rink on December 13th. This giant outdoor viewing party for the Blues-Avalanche game brings thousands of fans together to celebrate hockey and the holidays. Here’s what you need to know: As always, a giant outdoor screen will be showing the Blues game. This year it […]
Vladimir Tarasenko has done it again. This time he swatted the puck out of the air to put the puck past Montreal’s Carey Price.
Here’s a headline which might sound kind of familiar. Jori Lehtera has been named the First Star of the Week by the NHL. This comes just a couple weeks after teammate Vladimir Tarasenko was named the NHL’s top star. Lehtera claims the honor had four goals and six points over the course of three games […]
The St. Louis Blues put on another impressive performance against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night, cruising to a 4-1 victory. The game featured long stretches of play where the Blues controlled the pace of the game and contained the Capitals within their own zone. The Capitals haven’t played like a Cup contender so far […]
The St. Louis Blues caught us all by surprise by making a trade on a quiet Saturday morning/afternoon leading up to their game against the Washington Capitals. The team has sent defenseman Jordan Leopold to Columbus in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2016. Well that was unexpected! After rattling off wins in nine of their last […]
After missing a game after blocking a shot off his foot/leg in practice, Ryan Reaves returned in a big way against the Nashville Predators. He earned a 10-minute misconduct after trying to stand up for Vladimir Tarasenko following a high hit (still not sure what warranted 10 minutes, but I digress) and he dished out […]
The Buffalo Sabres were a respectable bunch against the Blues on Tuesday night and the dirty hits numbered almost as high as the Blues’ goal total. One of the worst, the one which drew a five-minute major, was Deslauriers spear on Tarasenko.
Patrik Berglund is a frustrating topic with St. Louis Blues fans. To date, Berglund has been a huge disappointment in 2014-15 and hasn’t lived up to the three-year, $11.1 million contract the Blues handed him prior to the season. His lone goal on the year came while he was down on the ice and the puck glanced […]
The St. Louis Blues’ win over New Jersey on Thursday night saw a relatively low attendance of 16,523. Despite the sparse crowds, Blues fans showed up in waves to watch the game on Fox Sports Midwest. The 6.9 household rating from the 4-3 win was the highest-rated game so far in 2014-15 and the second-best […]
The St. Louis Blues impressed for long stretches against the New Jersey Devils and walked away with a 4-3 win after a unnerving finish. Ken Hitchcock wasn’t too happy to watch his team nearly cough up a big lead in the game’s final minutes, but he still must appreciate the fact his team has ascended […]
