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 […]
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 […]
T.J. Oshie may have been the only person in the building or watching the broadcast who thought the puck entered the net when he fired a shot towards Ottawa's goal in the second period. Everyone assumed the puck deflected and went out of play, but Oshie did some detective work and discovered the puck tucked […]
EDITOR'S NOTE: Occasionally I'll feature articles from other writers. Some want their name displayed, others don't. It's up to them. 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. That can be a pretty challenging task considering the time zone difference and the fact the Olympic schedule can be pretty difficult to navigate. The good folks over at Sports Interaction […]
Jaroslav Halak will be sporting plenty of red when he heads to the Olympics in February. Representing Slovakia, Halak will wear a new helmet which features the country's name (Slovensko), a coat of arms and the nation's flag. Credit to In Goal Magazine and Sports.sk for these photos.
Here's an interesting trade report which actually doesn't involve Ryan Miller. An article from Elliotte Friedman of CBC.ca mentions that the St. Louis Blues were interested in Thomas Vanek back in October. Obviously Vanek ultimately landed with the New York Islanders in a trade which sent Matt Moulson and two picks to Buffalo. The trade […]
You've probably heard so many Ryan Miller trade rumors by now that the next mention of the goaltender's name may make you pull your hair out. First – Ryan Miller – and second, it looks like there's actually some truth to those rumors. After numerous "reports" from several "inside sources" hit Twitter last night, you […]
Chris Stewart is an extremely streaky player. When he's on, he scores goals in bunches. When he's off, you barely notice him out on the ice and you're often left questioning his effort. Against the New York Islanders, Stewart was pretty invisible and it's only partially due to his own performance. Stewart received just 5:32 […]
Alexander Steen looked like he had his season back on track when he scored his 26th goal of the year against the New York Rangers. Unfortunately, the good times didn't last long. Steen was hit awkwardly into the boards and appeared to injure his knee/leg. He hobbled off, but soon returned for the team's power […]
The St. Louis Blues have released an image of what their new poster honoring the team's Olympians will look like. As seen above, it shows off the 10 men who will head to Sochi to represent their respective countries. It's a pretty cool poster, but a few things look a little off. – Sobotka is […]
Another day, another Ryan Miller trade rumor. After the Blues were crushed 7-1 by the New Jersey Devils, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal Tweeted that he believes the Blues are after Ryan Miller in a "big way." Halak and Elliott for Blues or Ryan Miller? They're going after Miller in big way now.
