It’s been a tough few games for David Backes. The St. Louis captain has been battered with pucks to the mouth and the details of his injury are nothing short of gruesome. Backes has had a lot of work done and remarkably is still playing through the pain even though he will need additional work […]
The Blues are 7-2-1 over their last 10 games and they’ve rattled off four consecutive victories. A lot of things are going well for the Blues, but it’s easy for a winning streak to cover up some of the areas the team needs to improve on. One of those areas involves closing games out and […]
Are these officials trolling us? Ryan Reaves and Eric Bolton dropped their mitts and were preparing to engage in what would have been a heavyweight battle. The two positioned themselves and as soon as the first punch was about to be thrown, the officials stepped in and broke things up.
The NHL is apparently tracking some statistics they aren’t sharing publicly on their website. In the era of advanced statistics, the league is aware that more and more fans want more and more ways to track and evaluate their teams and players. With that in mind, the league has been slowly rolling out some interesting and […]
Martin Brodeur picked up an additional $20,000 after coming in to relieve Jake Allen and picking up the win against the New York Islanders. Following the result, GM Doug Armstrong joked about Brodeur’s bonus.
Jake Allen’s day against the New York Islanders only lasted 20 minutes, but it also featured the best save of the contest. Allen stops the initial shot and blocks another effort off of his rebound with his stick. The puck floated into the air and Allen quickly swatted it away before it crossed the line.
Martin Brodeur lost in his debut with the St. Louis Blues, but the big story doesn’t involve the veteran goaltender’s play in net. For the most part, Brodeur was solid, but the same can’t be said about the team’s defense and special teams. Just one season ago, goaltending was believed to be the major issue […]
Jake Allen held a contest in which fans could design his new goalie mask. After a ton of submissions and some voting, the winner was chosen. The design was then transformed into the lid you see below. A lot of fans were skeptical after the winner was chosen, but the design looks much more impressive […]
Steve Ott doesn’t score goals or set up many offensive plays, but he is more than capable of delivering some huge hits. Here he crunches Andrew Shaw with a big hit.
It’s official – Martin Brodeur is now a member of the St. Louis Blues. For the record, it felt really bizarre to write that sentence and for it to actually be a reality. Brodeur’s deal with the Blues is for one-year and $700,000, but his deal is all about the bonuses. That final aspect of […]
Zach Parise wasn’t too happy with the St. Louis Blues following the Minnesota Wild’s shootout loss. Parise was frustrated with how the Blues handled themselves out on the ice and accused them of being bullies. First, Parise believed the Wild deserved to win: The Wild held a distinct advantage in the shots department, besting the […]
The St. Louis Blues were dominant for long stretches of their games against the Edmonton Oilers. The final shot tally after regulation was 37-15 in favor of the Blues. Though the Blues backed down and almost disappeared entirely during the second period, the overall effort was just enough to get the job done. Edmonton goaltender […]
After seeing his Iron Man steak end at 737 games, Jay Bouwmeester is about to miss his third consecutive game when the Blues host the Oilers on Black Friday. Bouwmeester has been sidelined due to the always vague lower-body injury, but is reportedly closing in on a return. Here are the details from Jeremy Rutherford: […]
Here’s a scene I never thought I’d see: Martin Brodeur in a Blues uniform. In fact, I never thought I’d see Brodeur in a blue uniform. We’ll have to wait and see how Brodeur fits in with the Blues. The team should have a decision by next week.
The Blues-Senators game on Tuesday night was a feisty one. The Blues were defeated in a shootout after coughing up a two-goal lead, but the whole night may be remembered for all of the big hits and a memorable Ryan Reaves fight with Eric Gryba. Gryba wasn’t too pleased with all of the “yappy” Blues, […]
