Jori Lehtera goes to the hospital after taking a high stick to the throat

The string of injuries continues. Jori Lehtera was taken to the hospital after Brandon Saad’s stick came up and caught him in the throat. Despite an official looking right at the play, no penalty was called on this dangerous incident. Lehtera was bleeding, but it’s believed that was due to an earlier high stick. The […]

What are the Blues’ Odds of Winning the Central Division?

The St. Louis Blues have played 17 games in the 2015-16 NHL season.  With 20% of the season now in the books, the Blues find themselves in a three-way tie for second place in the Central Divison.  The Blues, Predators, and Wild are each sitting with 23 points, while the Dallas Stars have run out to […]

Discussing attendance at the Blues-Blackhawks game

If you were in attendance at the Scottrade Center for the Blues-Blackhawks game or if you watched on TV, you are aware that there were a ton of Blackhawks fans in the seats. That’s a pretty normal situation when the Blackhawks come to town, but Saturday’s game seemed to be an exception to the rule. […]

Video: Brian Elliott plays goal with a shortened stick and baseball glove

Brian Elliott has mostly been on the bench while Jake Allen has claimed time in the St. Louis crease, but that hasn’t put a damper on his sense of humor. During practice, Elliott ditched some of his normal equipment in favor of a shortened stick and a baseball glove. Enjoy Elliott’s form, complete with overly […]

Martin Havlat leaves the Blues due to personal reasons

The Martin Havlat era with the St. Louis Blues didn’t last long. After two games, the announcement was made that Havlat was on unconditional waivers. A later report indicated he had left the team due to personal reasons. There’s no indication what those reasons might be, but it’s certainly not because Havlat didn’t have gas […]

After a shaky start, Jake Allen has been outstanding in net

Jake Allen started the 2015-16 season with mixed results. His numbers weren’t awful, but he looked a bit shaky in net while allowing nine goals over his first three games. These initial outings were a bit worrisome as Allen seemed to be moving a bit too much in net, resulting in him being well out of […]

Blues are keeping Robby Fabbri up in the NHL

When the news initially broke that Robby Fabbri would begin the year with the St. Louis Blues out of training camp, it remained to be seen how long he’d be up due to the NHL’s slide rule. This rule states that if a player who is 18 or 19 years of age (as of September 15 […]

The Martin Havlat signing is a good one for the Blues

To date, the Blues have relied on their youth to get them through some tough times while key players have missed time due to injury. Things have gone well and the Blues have picked up a ton of points while their best players were on the shelf. Unfortunately, injuries keep piling up (Steve Ott is […]

Fox Sports Midwest celebrates the #RoarBacon movement

The #RoarBacon movement is a bizarre one fueled by auto-correct and an amazing Blues comeback win, but it has produced some hilarious photos and one great new intro from Fox Sports Midwest. Pretty funny. The sizzling at the end really caps off the video. Some fans aren’t on board with the whole #RoarBacon thing, but […]

Reaves

There’s no arguing Ryan Reaves’ fine

Ryan Reaves was handed a $3,024.19 fine, the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement, for his elbow to the head of Anze Kopitar. Here’s a quick video of the play if you missed it: What this angle doesn’t show is that Reaves quickly glanced behind him and saw Kopitar was about to pass by […]

It’s remarkable the Blues are still winning games

Paul Stastny, Kevin Shattenkirk, Vladimir Tarasenko, Patrik Berglund and Jaden Schwartz. That’s a great group of individual talent that’s been on the shelf for varying lengths of time for the Blues and yet the team keeps on winning. How are the Blues still collecting points with so many players injured? Depth is the answer which will […]

Colton Parayko deserves to be in the Calder Trophy conversation

Heading into 2015-16, it was all but assumed that the Calder Trophy would go home with one of two players – Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel. Other rookies around the NHL have proven to be contenders as well and that includes Colton Parayko of the St. Louis Blues. If you’ve watched any Blues games this […]

Don’t call Vladimir Tarasenko by a nickname

When Vladimir Tarasenko first broke into the NHL, plenty of fans referred to him as Tank. Not long after, it was revealed Tarasenko wasn’t a fan of that nickname, which then led to the creation of Frank. Both names are still used pretty often today (Tank more so than Frank), but Tarasenko has reiterated that […]

Blues invite Martin Havlat and Dainius Zubrus to professional tryouts

The St. Louis Blues have invited Martin Havlat and Dainius Zubrus to a professional tryout. The move comes as the Blues try to find answers while several players on the roster deal with varying injuries. Both players skated with the New Jersey Devils last season, but were unable to find work for 2015-16. The injuries to […]
