Brian Elliott is on an incredible run for the Blues. This save on Milan Lucic in overtime might be the best isolated example of just how good Elliott has been since Jake Allen went down with an injury.
The St. Louis Blues have some of the best average local TV ratings in the NHL, but unfortunately not all of the news is positive. According to the Sports Business Journal, the Blues own a 3.5 average local TV rating which checks in at the fourth overall spot. They trail only the Buffalo Sabres (6.81), the Pittsburgh […]
Jake Allen’s recovery from a knee injury he suffered in January appears to be progressing. Allen is continuing to join the Blues for their morning skates as a full participant, but so far he hasn’t joined the team for a regular practice. Though it sounds like Allen’s return is nearing, Ken Hitchcock isn’t ready to […]
Despite the declining popularity of the Winter Classic, hockey fans in St. Louis have been clamoring for the event to come to Busch Stadium. Even if it was just a Stadium Series game, Blues fans have yearned for a chance to watch hockey outside. According to a report from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, that wish […]
Back in September, the Blues announced that they were changing their alcohol policy for the Club Seats at Scottrade Center. Previously, a ticket for those seats meant unlimited food and drinks delivered to your seat from the servers posted around the section. This changed in September when the team moved to a new structure where […]
The David Backes contract situation with the Blues remains unresolved. The team reportedly offered Backes a contract not too long ago worth about $5.5 million a year for three years, but Backes and his agent declined. Since then, the two sides have been in contact but another offer hasn’t been extended. For the Blues, there […]
Remember when Patrik Berglund looked a lot like Alexander Steen on a recent Blues broadcast? This time he’s got a whole new identity, courtesy of Dmitrij Jaskin. Who else wishes this goof became a regular thing done before each Blues game?
As if the Blues beating the Red Wings on Wednesday night wasn’t good enough, the team also welcomed a familiar face back to practice – Jaden Schwartz. Schwartz fractured his ankle back on October 23rd and required surgery to repair the injury. The freak incident, which occurred when he lost his balance and collided into […]
Vladimir Tarasenko was in a miniature scoring slump heading into tonight’s game against the Penguins. The “slump” was that he had not scored in five games which was the longest goalless stretch for him so far in 2015-16. Against the Penguins, Tarasenko reminded a national audience of the talent he possesses. That’s an outstanding goal. […]
The good news is that the Blues are starting to regain their health on defense. The bad news is that it may still be a game or two until Jay Bouwmeester (concussion) and Carl Gunnarsson (upper-body) are back to full health. Both players skated on Sunday, but Gunnarsson has already been ruled out for Monday’s game […]
The Blues are at the center of a ton of different trade rumors and they actually made a deal on Friday. The Blues orchestrated a trade with the Red Wings, acquiring Richard Nedomlel in exchange for future considerations. This trade registers at about a zero on the ol’ excitement meter. Nedomlel, 22, has skated in just two AHL […]
Now that the Rams are officially headed for LA, a lot of attention has been turned on the two sports teams left in St. Louis. Specifically, this attention has been placed on Blues owner Tom Stillman who on the surface appears to carry all the traits you’d want in a local owner. The other topic […]
Why discuss the St. Louis Rams and their move to LA on a blog about the St. Louis Blues? Good question. Though this is a blog about hockey and the Blues, it’s also a place where those from St. Louis gather. Visitors to this site all have one thing in common – love for the […]
Ryan Reaves is one tough customer. New Jersey’s Bobby Farnham is … well, not so much. Farnham may think he can hang with the big boys of the NHL, but Reaves isn’t buying what Farnham is selling. Another angle: Farnham had a chip on his shoulder throughout the rest of the game and later delivered […]
Ryan Reaves loves his pranks. When he’s not uploading videos of him scaring various Blues players, he’s drawing on Ty Rattie’s face during an interview. Rattie was called up as a response to the team’s rash of injuries, but he had no idea that a Sharpie was waiting for him. Another look: Gotta love Reaves.
