Backes, Oshie and Shattenkirk fail to medal in Sochi

The Team USA rollercoaster ride has finally ended. After seeing expectations and attention for the team grow to insane levels after T.J. Oshie's incredible shootout performance, the team crashed out of the Olympics with two disappointing defeats.

GIF: Oshie juggles a puck with his head, skates and stick

If you've watched the Blues practice or warm up before a game, you've probably seen T.J. Oshie juggling the puck around the ice. It's usually a ridiculous display of coordination and skill.

Jaroslav Halak’s disappointing Olympics

Jaroslav Halak isn't having quite as much fun in Sochi as other members of the St. Louis Blues. While fans are still buzzing about T.J. Oshie's ridiculous shootout effort, they're also speaking in hushed, concerned tones about Halak's dismal effort with Slovakia.  In two games with Slovakia, Halak is 0-2 with a 5.13 GAA and a […]

Blues have the #5 fan base according to Nielsen study

St. Louis Blues fans are a passionate bunch. However, many have speculated that the fan base is dwarfed by those in other cities due to a variety of factors, including the fact the city of St. Louis is considered a baseball town.  A report from Nielsen analyzed the various U.S. sports markets and ranked each […]


Other Olympic events the Blues should compete in

The St. Louis Blues are off for the next couple of weeks. While Olympic hockey is a nice substitute (you know, if you're actually able to watch the games and not have them spoiled), it's just not the same as Blues hockey, especially considering how well 2013-14 has gone.  There are several members of the […]


Video: Here’s another T.J. Oshie shootout gem

T.J. Oshie is a shootout master. In his career, Oshie is 25-for-46 (54.3%) and has the second best scoring percentage of any active skater with at least 20 attempts. He's one of the league's absolute best when it comes to the skills competition.  This season he is 7-for-10 (70%) and is tied with Logan Couture and Jonathan […]

Net problem for the Blues?

The objective is to feature some different perspectives and opinions on the site.  The season is in full swing in St Louis. It looked as though it'd be a tough campaign in the realigned and […]


Ty Rattie continues to impress with the Chicago Wolves

Things have been going pretty well for the Blues at the NHL level. In fact, things have been going so well that we've barely had any time to check in on one of the team's most exciting prospects – Ty Rattie. The 2013-14 campaign was supposed to be a telling one for Rattie as he […]


Vladimir Sobotka on IR, will be re-evaluated in 4 weeks

Fans held their breath when Vladimir Sobotka hobbled off the ice against the Carolina Hurricanes. Things looked bleak, but the feeling immediately after the game was that Sobotka would be classified as day-to-day and at worst might miss a couple contests.  Unfortunately, the situation is much more severe. Sobotka was placed on the IR by […]


Broadcast Blooper: Blues beat Blues according to KSDK

The Blues fell to the Carolina Hurricanes by a score of 3-1 on Friday night. You probably knew this, but someone apparently forgot to tell the folks over at KSDK.  In a rather impressive blooper, KSDK stated that the Blues stifled the Blues and were able to eke out a win. Way to go Blues! […]

The St. Louis Blues will be well represented during the Winter Olympics. Odds are you'll want to follow all of them while they're competing.
