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, […]
The St. Louis Blues have invited Martin Brodeur to practice following the Brian Elliott injury. Earlier the Blues announced that Elliott would be out with a lower-body injury and that Jordan Binnington would be called up. This seemed like a temporary fix and it wasn’t long before the speculation started suggesting the Blues may need […]
UPDATE: It looks like the Blues will look for outside help. ********* Brian Elliott has been diagnosed with a lower-body injury, as reported by the team’s website. The injury occurred when Elliott was collided with during the second period against the Ottawa Senators. Elliott fell backwards and appeared to awkwardly twist his knee. There haven’t […]
It’s time to warm up the hot stove! The Edmonton Oilers are apparently willing to trade just about any player on their roster in return for a top center. This led Blues fans to connect the dots while urging the team to ship out Patrik Berglund. Now, no one said Berglund is a top center […]
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 […]

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.
