Video: Jake Allen slides over to rob Jason Pominville

Nino Niederreiter’s insane pass to Jason Pominville probably should have resulted in a goal for the Wild. Niederreiter’s spinning, no-look pass managed to get through traffic and find an open Pominville who appeared to have a completely open look. Jake Allen had other plans and managed to slide over and make an incredible save. That’s filthy. Which […]

Blues targeting early April for Steve Ott’s return

Steve Ott might be the most polarizing skater on the St. Louis Blues. Some fans love him while others … not so much. Ott has been sidelined since December 5th after doing the splits into the boards which later required surgeries on both hamstrings. Ott’s initial timeline was three months, but the Blues appear to […]

Ty Rattie producing on offense, but Blues send him down

Ty Rattie has been on a decent run of late, scoring four goals in his past eight games. His play during this run hasn’t been outstanding, but he’s been showing signs of growing and it’s impossible to ignore the goals which have been few and far between for the rest of the St. Louis roster. […]

Blues display some puzzling logic at the trade deadline

Predictably, the Blues were quiet on deadline day. The day in itself was pretty uneventful, as contenders loaded up on talent in the days heading into the actual final day of trades. The Blues stood where they were, their lone trade involving Anders Nilsson occurring days earlier. If the Blues’ lack of action was frustrating, the […]

Video: Robby Fabbri’s slick goal against Cam Ward

The Blues rattled off five goals against a depleted Hurricanes roster and the best came from young Robby Fabbri. Fabbri’s speed allowed him to get behind the ‘Canes defense, but his hands deserve all the praise for completely fooling goaltender Cam Ward. Filthy.

Blues acquire Anders Nilsson from the Oilers

The Blues made a rather insignificant, potentially unneccessary trade on Saturday morning by acquiring goaltender Anders Nilsson from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for goaltender Niklas Lundstrom and a 2016 fifth-round draft pick. The trade was made by the Blues for one simple reason: NHL experience. Nilsson has NHL experience while the team’s current backup options behind […]

Blues add free Wi-Fi to Scottrade Center

The Scottrade Center is where cell phone service goes to die. If you’ve ever tried to check Facebook, Twitter or anything else on your phone while at a Blues game, you know it’s pretty much impossible. At least it used to be. The Blues announced today that they have installed free Wi-Fi at Scottrade for […]

Steen left the game and the team is now saying he will be placed on IR with an upper-body injury and will be evaluated in four weeks. Steen’s injury […]

Video: Brian Elliott robs Milan Lucic in OT
