There’s not much to say after that one. NHL officials, often criticized for their incompetency, lived up to their reputation on multiple occasions in Game 2. The officials were involved heavily on the scoreline, ruining what should have been a great playoff game between two strong teams. Blown Icing The linesman is supposed to notice […]
A win is a win. Even if it’s ugly, and believe me the Blues’ win in Game 1 was ugly, it still counts. Here are some thoughts from the first game of the first round. Brian Elliott He has received a ton of praise for his performance and all of it is deserved. For long […]
Here’s where you can find all of the Blues-Blackhawks games on TV. All of the games will be available on NBC or NBCSN, but the coverage there is excruciating and we’d all rather listen to John Kelly and Darren Pang. Fox Sports Midwest will broadcast Games 1, 2 and 4 and may extend coverage to […]
Out of the three rookie success stories on the Blues this season, Joel Edmundson’s has been discussed the least. Colton Parayko and Robby Fabbri have received the bulk of the attention (deservedly so), but Edmundson has been a solid, reliable defenseman throughout the year and his play was rewarded by the Blues with a two-year, $2.1 […]
Steve Ott has been an easy target for Blues fans and blogs such as this one, but there’s nothing funny about what’s currently keeping Ott out of the lineup. Jeremy Rutherford reports that Ott is currently dealing with Colitis, which refers to inflammation in the colon. Ott will be evaluated again in two weeks, but you […]
The St. Louis Blues are trying to resurrect an old tradition by encouraging fans to sing “When the Blues Go Marching In” prior to their final regular game of the season on Saturday against Washington. The push included a video explaining the history and significance, but the whole thing was surrounded by a bit of […]
Paul Stastny didn’t have the impact he was supposed to when he joined the Blues last season. He scored 46 points, but that total was well below what was expected after posting 60 points with the Avalanche in 2013-14. Don’t look now, but Stastny seems to have finally found his groove in 2015-16 and has […]
It’s not clear whether this is a Blues fan or someone expertly trolling Blues fans, but this jersey is so bizarre that it’s worth sharing.
Jay Bouwmeester’s injury hasn’t attracted much coverage ever since he suffered an “upper-body” injury against the San Jose Sharks. The St. Louis Blues ran a brief story on their website on March 25th stating he would miss at least two games, but there hasn’t been any additional coverage since then. Meanwhile, the national outlets (and […]
Vladimir Sobotka might be back in a St. Louis Blues uniform next season. A report from Pierre LeBrun suggests that Sobotka’s time in the KHL may end this summer and he’d return to the Blues in time for 2016-17. Via The Hockey News: According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, Sobotka has a one-month window each June […]
It took 60 games, but Joel Edmundson finally scored his first NHL goal. The goal came in the third period and gave the Blues a commanding 4-0 lead over the Canucks. Edmundson’s teammates were quick to mob the rookie on the bench:
The news of Brian Elliott returning to the St. Louis net was widely circulated over a day before the team’s game against the Vancouver Canucks. Apparently no one told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) about Elliott’s return or maybe they were hoping to see Jake Allen. That image is just a bit too perfect. Elliott’s […]
Brian Elliott has been activated off of the IR and is expected to start on Saturday against the Canucks after missing 10 games with a lower-body injury. Elliott’s return comes at a great time as the Blues have stumbled in their last two games and Jake Allen looks like he needs a rest. The timing […]
The Blues have given Carl Gunnarsson a three-year, $8.7 million extension which will keep the defenseman with the team through the 2018-19 season. Gunnarsson’s extension comes at an average cap hit of $2.9 million, which is actually a discount compared to his current $3.15 million cap hit. The announcement of his new extension came at […]
The best part of the Blues’ announcement that the 2017 Winter Classic would be held in Busch Stadium against the Chicago Blackhawks was this incredible video connecting the history of the St. Louis Cardinals to the great game of hockey. Awesome video and a great way to market the event in St. Louis.
