The St. Louis Blues were trying to keep pace with the Dallas Stars atop the Central Division, but the conclusion of December and beginning of January has set them back. A loss on the last day of December to the Minnesota Wild has turned into a four-game losing streak, as the Blues look for their […]
The Blues officially hit the midway point of the 2015-16 season with their 4-1 loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Their first game of the second half was a 3-2 OT loss against the Ottawa Senators on Monday night. It’d be easy to write off these two losses, but they were perfect microcosms […]
Patrik Berglund returned for the Blues on Saturday night as the team faced the Maple Leafs. The Blues hyped the fact Berglund was returning throughout the day, attempting to create a stir for the forward’s first game of 2015-16. Fox Sports Midwest covered the story too, but Berglund looks a little different since we last […]
The Scott Gomez era with the St. Louis Blues is over. The team placed Gomez on unconditional waivers, signaling his release from the squad. This news comes shortly after the Blues announced that Patrik Berglund has been cleared for contact which would lead to a logjam at forward. Gomez served the Blues well during his […]
Patrick Berglund is closing in on a return and has officially been cleared for contact during Blues practices. Berglund is still recovering from surgery he had back in August on his shoulder, but the news that he’s been cleared for contact means that a return is in the very near future. Berglund is still a polarizing […]
If Brian Elliott’s career with the St. Louis Blues could be summarized by one game, it’d be the recent 3-0 loss to the Dallas Stars. Jake Allen started the first leg of the home-and-home series, picking up the win in a lengthy shootout after the Blues had a mostly dominant performance. Elliott was tasked with the […]
If you’re going to interview Alexander Steen, you better make sure you don’t have any dry cleaning tags still attached to your clothing. Chris Pinkert learned this lesson the hard way as Steen immediately spotted the tag and promptly brought it to everyone’s attention. Good eyes from Steen. And some decent camera work once he […]
The Blues picked up a big 3-2 win in a shootout against the Dallas Stars, but things wouldn’t have made it to the shootout if it wasn’t for an incredible save from Kevin Shattenkirk. The defenseman easily had the best save of the night by batting the puck out of the air just before it […]
Festivus is here which means it’s time to air some grievances. Friend of the blog Geoff Upchurch graciously chipped in some grievances pointed at the St. Louis Blues. It’s that time of year again, and not even that mythical beast known as a full 60-minute game played last night against the Boston Bruins can hold […]
The Blues appeared to have two points secured against the Philadelphia Flyers after jumping out to a 3-0 lead. Four Flyers goals later, the Blues were again trying to figure out what went wrong. How did the team make so many consecutive mistakes to drop a result? Shouldn’t a team of their caliber be able […]
Here’s some fun trade speculation which should keep Blues fans busy. Recently, Tampa Bay Lighting GM Steve Yzerman attended a Blues game and was seen chatting with Blues GM Doug Armstrong. It was unclear what the focal point of Yzerman’s visit was, but soon after the Assistant GM for the Lightning (Pat Verbeek) took in […]
Ryan Reaves hasn’t had a great 2015-16 to date. Aside from missing some of his usual great forechecking and speed, Reaves has also refrained from dropping his gloves. That changed on Saturday when he fought for the first time this season, battling Calgary’s Deryk Engelland.
Teams around the NHL are putting out their holiday videos and the Blues are no exception. While other squads have opted for comedy, the Blues opted for karaoke. Creepy karaoke at that.
The annual St. Louis Classic is scheduled to return on Saturday, January 2nd at 5pm, but this time it will be held in a new location. Instead of taking place at Steinberg in Forest Park, the Classic will take place at Shaw Park Ice Rink located in Clayton. If you’re unfamiliar with the event, Fox […]
Vernon Fiddler wasn’t too happy with Jori Lehtera. Several members of the Dallas Stars took exception with Lehtera over the course of a 3-0 win for the Blues, but Fiddler’s anger crossed a line. The first cross-check wasn’t too bad. The second one was pretty ugly and the third should never be seen in a hockey […]
