Shattenkirk bats the puck out of the air to prevent a goal

The Blues picked up a big 3-2 win in a shootout against the Dallas Stars, but things wouldn’t have made it to the shootout if it wasn’t for an incredible save from Kevin Shattenkirk. The defenseman easily had the best save of the night by batting the puck out of the air just before it […]


It’s time to air some grievances about the St. Louis Blues

Festivus is here which means it’s time to air some grievances. Friend of the blog Geoff Upchurch graciously chipped in some grievances pointed at the St. Louis Blues.

Paajarvi on blowing leads: “Maybe we don’t think too much”

The Blues appeared to have two points secured against the Philadelphia Flyers after jumping out to a 3-0 lead. Four Flyers goals later, the Blues were again trying to figure out what went wrong.

Video: Ryan Reaves fights for the first time in 2015-16

Ryan Reaves hasn’t had a great 2015-16 to date. Aside from missing some of his usual great forechecking and speed, Reaves has also refrained from dropping his gloves. That changed on Saturday when he fought for the first time this season, battling Calgary’s Deryk Engelland.

Video: Jori Lehtera takes a cross-check to the head

Vernon Fiddler wasn’t too happy with Jori Lehtera. Several members of the Dallas Stars took exception with Lehtera over the course of a 3-0 win for the Blues, but Fiddler’s anger crossed a line. The first cross-check wasn’t too bad. The second one was pretty ugly and the third should never be seen in a hockey […]

Report: Blues may have talked to Oilers about a trade

There are a ton of trade rumors out there and just about every team is talking to every other team about something or some player.

After yet another disappointing loss, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock had a press conference about what went wrong and what the team needs to do to fix things. The usual quotes were presented, but Hitchcock had one startling comment which deserves some discussion.

Video: Slick no-look pass from Lehtera leads to a goal

The Blues found their offense against the Arizona Coyotes and received big contributions from Kevin Shattenkirk, Vladimir Tarasenko, Magnus Paajarvi, Alexander Steen and Jori Lehtera. Lehtera in particular may have had the best play of the night as he found Shattenkirk for the team’s third goal with a brilliant no-look pass. Lehtera looked up and […]


Blue send down Edmundson, recall Lindbohm

At the end of November, Joel Edmundson discussed his struggles and the fact he was a healthy scratch. The team hoped that he’d snap out of his slump of poor play and return to the form which won a roster spot out of training camp. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened and the Blues have sent him […]

The Blues’ slump looks and sounds all too familiar

The St. Louis Blues looked awful at home against the lowly Toronto Maple Leafs. They also looked pretty bad on the road against the New York Islanders and at home against the Florida Panthers. The club has dropped three straight. While that type of slump is expected over the course of an 82-game season, it’s […]
