Kevin Shattenkirk is closing in on a return to the lineup and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Blues have dropped three in a row (though they did pick up a couple of points) and look unorganized and sloppy on defense. Offensively, the Blues haven’t been able to replace Shattenkirk’s production. Despite skating […]
The Blues-Red Wings game from Sunday is one most Blues fans never want to talk about ever again. That is, the only way they will talk about it is if it’s in regards to the NHL admitting they blew the broken stick call in overtime. With that in mind, there was one pretty noteworthy incident worth sharing. […]
The Red Wings defeated the Blues in overtime on a disputed goal which was scored with a broken stick. The officials elected to not review the goal (?) and instead decided that the goal counted. One look (here’s the video and overhead) would have potentially altered the game, but the Blues were left asking for […]
Magnus Paajarvi and Ty Rattie combined for a pretty awesome goal for the AHL’s Chicago Wolves. The two didn’t impress during their brief time up in the NHL this season, but here they made their AHL competition look silly. Paajarvi’s spin was impressive. It’s a shame he hasn’t been able to figure out the NHL. […]
Prior to their game against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night, Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice had some pretty kind words for his opponent. In fact, he went as far as saying the Blues are the best team in the NHL.
Barret Jackman recently received the night off against the Calgary Flames and Twitter exploded with fans asking why, critiquing Jackman’s play and criticizing/praising Ken Hitchcock for the decision. This article should serve as a giant disclaimer every Blues fan needs to ready before reacting to healthy scratches. The Blues have depth. That statement is true of […]
Brian Elliott officially has the most shutouts in St. Louis Blues history. He picked up his 21st shutout as a member of the Blues in a 25-save, 4-0 win against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. The shutout pushed him past Jaroslav Halak and into the top spot on the franchise’s list. Elliott commented on […]
Darren Pang is usually camped out in a pretty dangerous spot during Blues games. Standing between the benches, Panger offers strong analysis while avoiding players and sticks heading to their respective benches. Of course, the occasional puck flies his way too. This time he snagged one. Below are the two feeds from the game, both […]
The Blues traded away Chris Stewart last season to the Buffalo Sabres in a deal which was supposed to answer the team’s questions in net. The Ryan Miller experiment proved to be unsuccessful and Stewart found himself skating for the Sabres – a punishment most fans wouldn’t wish on even their most hated hockey player. […]
Vladimir Sobotka has once again been the center of speculation amongst Blues fans. With Sobotka’s KHL season in the books, some have discussed that Sobotka may make a return to the Blues just in time for the playoffs. The notion wasn’t completely far-fetched as you may recall Alexander Radulov joined the Predators prior to the postseason […]
Michael Raffl enjoyed some serious hang time after a vicious encounter with David Backes. This clean hit sent Raffl sprawling and received a huge ovation from the crowd.
Brian Elliott’s outstanding 28-save shutout against the Philadelphia Flyers not only gave the Blues two critical points, but it also moved Elliott into a tie for the franchise shutout record. Elliott’s shutout gives him 20 since joining the Blues, matching Jaroslav Halak’s 20 shutouts at the top of the league leaders in St. Louis Blues […]
Patrik Berglund will be a healthy scratch for Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers. The forward, one who has drawn a ton of criticism from fans for the better part of two seasons, will sit in favor of Chris Porter. Hitch calls Berglund out “coach’s decision.” Porter in and will start with Backes and Oshie.
Bobbleheads are a strange entity. People go nuts over them even though they rarely look anything like the player they’re supposed to be representing. Such is the case with the Vladimir Tarasenko bobblehead which will go to the first 15,000 fans attending Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers. What does Tarasenko think about his bobblehead? […]
After giving up three goals in the third period, it looked like the Blues were destined to play overtime hockey with the Jets. With just over a minute left in the third period, Barret Jackman dumped the puck in on Winnipeg’s goal. It should have been an easy save, but Ondrej Pavelec was caught napping. […]
