It’s been 9 games since the Blues scored in the first period

The St. Louis Blues are second in the Central and fifth in the NHL with 99 points, but there’s still plenty of areas for concern. The team’s offense has been improved this season, but of late, it takes a while for the forwards to find their mark. When it comes to the first period, the […]


Video: Magnus Paajarvi scores a baseball-style goal

Magnus Paajarvi struggled during his time with the Blues this season, but he has played pretty well with the Chicago Wolves in the AHL. Over the course of 25 games, Paajarvi has eight goals and 10 assists. He previously had an awesome assist on a Ty Rattie goal, but now he tallies a beauty with […]


Ken Hitchcock reiterates Brian Elliott is the starter

It’s that time of the year where every coaching decision is met with questions and speculation. Such was the case when Jake Allen started consecutive games to complete the Blues’ recent road trip. Is Allen the new number one? Has Ken Hitchcock lost his confidence in Brian Elliott. Simply, no and no. Hitchcock discussed the […]


Blues credit Steve Ott’s fight for shifting momentum vs. Penguins

The Blues found themselves trailing by two during the second period in Pittsburgh. The Penguins tallied two goals in 17 seconds and the Blues looked ready to pack it in and coast through the remainder of the contest. Then something shifted the momentum and got the Blues back in the game. Was it an inspirational speech […]

Kevin Shattenkirk nearing a return

Kevin Shattenkirk is closing in on a return to the lineup and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Blues have dropped three in a row (though they did pick up a couple of points) and look unorganized and sloppy on defense. Offensively, the Blues haven’t been able to replace Shattenkirk’s production. Despite skating […]


Video: Drew Miller punched the Blues logo off Petteri Lindbohm’s helmet

The Blues-Red Wings game from Sunday is one most Blues fans never want to talk about ever again. That is, the only way they will talk about it is if it’s in regards to the NHL admitting they blew the broken stick call in overtime. With that in mind, there was one pretty noteworthy incident worth sharing. […]

Ken Hitchcock comments on Detroit’s controversial OT goal

The Red Wings defeated the Blues in overtime on a disputed goal which was scored with a broken stick. The officials elected to not review the goal (?) and instead decided that the goal counted. One look (here’s the video and overhead) would have potentially altered the game, but the Blues were left asking for […]


GIF: Paajarvi and Rattie combine for a pretty goal

Magnus Paajarvi and Ty Rattie combined for a pretty awesome goal for the AHL’s Chicago Wolves. The two didn’t impress during their brief time up in the NHL this season, but here they made their AHL competition look silly. Paajarvi’s spin was impressive. It’s a shame he hasn’t been able to figure out the NHL. […]

Jets coach Paul Maurice praises the Blues

Prior to their game against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night, Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice had some pretty kind words for his opponent. In fact, he went as far as saying the Blues are the best team in the NHL.

Blues have the depth to rest key players down the stretch

Barret Jackman recently received the night off against the Calgary Flames and Twitter exploded with fans asking why, critiquing Jackman’s play and criticizing/praising Ken Hitchcock for the decision. This article should serve as a giant disclaimer every Blues fan needs to ready before reacting to healthy scratches. The Blues have depth. That statement is true of […]


Brian Elliott has the most shutouts in St. Louis Blues history

Brian Elliott officially has the most shutouts in St. Louis Blues history. He picked up his 21st shutout as a member of the Blues in a 25-save, 4-0 win against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. The shutout pushed him past Jaroslav Halak and into the top spot on the franchise’s list. Elliott commented on […]
