It looked like the Nashville Predators were well out of reach from the St. Louis Blues in the Central. Even as the Blues rattled off win after win, the Predators seemed to be able to match every point earned by the Blues. Thanks to the joy of NHL scheduling, the two teams completed their regular […]
Heading into the 2014-15 season, it was clear that Brian Elliott was the starting goaltender of the St. Louis Blues. At least, that’s what the Blues were preaching. Fans were content to debate which goaltender should be the top option in St. Louis. As the season started, the belief was that Elliott and Jake Allen […]
The St. Louis Blues were one of the most active teams on deadline day, completing three trades which addressed needs both at defense and in terms of their depth. The Blues acquired Zbynek Michalek, Robert Bortuzzo and Olli Jokinen over the course of the day and in doing so they gave Blues fans a lot to talk about. […]
The Chicago Blackhawks have been busy. Heading into Monday’s trade deadline, the Blackhawks made big news by acquiring Kimmo Timonen from the Philadelphia Flyers and Antoine Vermette from the Arizona Coyotes. The Blackhawks parted with a total of three picks and Klas Dahlbeck to pick up both Timonen and Vermette. What do these trades mean for the […]
Usually the only hits featured on Frozen Notes are ones handed out by Blues players. Every now and then a hit is dished out on a St. Louis Blues skater that’s simply worth showing. Such was the case when Dustin Byfuglien ran over Patrik Berglund.
Are you frustrated and confused by how the St. Louis Blues are playing of late? You’re not alone. The Blues are 5-5-0 over their last 10 games and are falling further and further behind the Nashville Predators. You’d think Ken Hitchcock has answers, but he seems as confused by the ugly play on the ice […]
Just one day after the report surfaced that Doug Armstrong was heavily scouting the New Jersey Devils and the Phoenix Coyotes, we have this new report that Armstrong is watching the Calgary Flames and the New York Rangers. The Blues also have a scout in attendance. As the post yesterday discussed, the Blues will have […]
Teams send scouts to various games around the NHL all the time, but when a GM makes an appearance, that’s when things get interesting. St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong is reportedly in attendance for the Coyotes-Devils game tonight in New Jersey. That’s pretty interesting. A report like that should cause fans to scour through both […]
If you only saw the score from the Blues’ 5-1 win over the Bruins, you might assume it was a lopsided blowout. The reality couldn’t be any farther from that assumption. The Blues were outplayed for long stretches, yet emerged the victor in what might have been one of the strangest games of the season. […]
Have you ever wanted to know more about the Towel Man? KSDK did a three-minute feature on the Scottrade Center icon and they reveal some interesting information on Towel Man’s full-time job.
You could describe the Blues’ loss to the Dallas Stars in a lot of different ways. None of them are positive. Even the team’s lone goal from Patrik Berglund was more humerus (of course Berglund scores in a game that’s well out of reach) than anything. David Backes summed up things nicely: That’s extremely accurate. […]
The St. Louis Blues have kept the pressure on the Nashville Predators by rattling off a ton of wins and picking up points in nearly every game over the last month. Though the Blues are still trailing the Predators in the Central, their streak has given them one of the best records in the NHL […]
As if the competition for the Central crown wasn’t tough enough as is, the Nashville Predators made a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs to bolster their Stanley Cup chances. The Preds brought in Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli in exchange for Olli Jokinen, Brendan Leipsic and a first-round pick in the 2015 Draft. Will […]
T.J. Oshie, David Backes and Alexander Steen had an incredible game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. One of the best goals came off a long pass off the boards from Backes to Oshie. Once Oshie collected the puck, he went behind the net and fed a now open Backes with a nifty between the legs feed. […]
Vladimir Tarasenko is having an incredible season. He has tallied 28 goals and 25 assists in 54 games and has routinely been in the league’s top-5 for goals scored. While fans cheer and celebrate Tarasenko’s wicked wrister and unbelievable accuracy, the topic of the youngster’s future is quietly being ignored. Tarasenko’s contract expires at the end of […]
