After yet another early playoff exit, changes are coming for the Blues. At least, that’s the feeling among Blues fans who are tired of the same result. Is that same feeling seen in the dressing room? Kevin Shattenkirk agrees that change is coming. That’s assuming that the Blues elect to keep Doug Armstrong at his post. […]
Same script, different year. For the third time in as many seasons, the Blues have crashed out of the playoffs in the first round by a score of four games to two. There’s a lot of things which could and should be said after another quick exit and all of those things will be written […]
It takes a team effort to lose three games in a playoff series and a team effort to right the ship and prevent elimination. With that being said, the Blues need to get more out of David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Paul Stastny if they hope to prolong their stay in the 2014-15 playoffs. This trio […]
The Blues have a pretty rotten recent history in Game 5s. Looking back over the last couple seasons, the script has gone Game 5 loss followed by Game 6 elimination. Will the story repeat itself this season against the Wild? Two years ago, the Blues entered Game 5 at home with the series tied at […]
The Blues’ Game 5 loss at home was infuriating and extremely disappointing. Apparently one fan decided to take a play out of the Edmonton and Toronto playbook and decided to toss a jersey on the ice to show their frustration. No photos or video of the incident have surfaced, but several fans have confirmed the […]
The St. Louis Blues are making a grave mistake with how much they are using Steve Ott. Specifically, they need a reality check and need to realize what Ott actually brings to the table. In the team’s Game 5 loss at home, Ott saw over 15 minutes while other more talented forwards sat on the […]
Did you think the Blues’ dismal performance in Game 3 would turn away television viewers for Game 4? If so, you were wrong in a big way. The team’s dominant win over the Wild in Game 4 was the highest-rated game in Fox Sports Midwest history. The broadcast averaged a 12.4 rating in St. Louis […]
The Blues woke up in a big way in Game 4 and Vladimir Tarasenko was a major factor in the team’s offense. Tarasenko scored earlier on a deflection, but his second goal of the night was a thing of beauty and was pretty similar to his insane effort against the Rangers earlier in the year. […]
Free Bortuzzo. That’s the rally cry Blues fans have been screaming on Twitter ever since the Blues announced their lineup for Game 1 against the Wild. Following the Game 3 disaster, the cry grew louder and fans questioned why Ken Hitchcock was ignoring the physical defenseman. Is it because of his puck-handling? Is Carl Gunnarsson […]
After the Blues’ horrible performance in Game 3 against the Wild, you’d imagine the team would have a lot to work on in practice today. At the very least, practice would prove to be an opportunity to get everyone back on the same page out on the ice. Apparently Ken Hitchcock has a different strategy […]
If you watched Game 3 between the Blues and the Wild, you probably have a pretty strong opinion about how the Blues played. I aired most of my grievances on Twitter, but what better place to rant about that miserable game than on the blog dedicated to the team that failed to show up in […]
If you weren’t in attendance for Game 1 between the St. Louis Blues and the Minnesota Wild, you missed a pretty spectacular on-ice show prior to the opening faceoff. The Blues used a combination of video, on-ice projections and sound to create a memorable introduction to the playoffs. Pretty cool stuff.
With the Blues clinging to a 2-1 lead, David Backes swatted Nino Niederreiter’s shot off the goal line after it struck the post, hit Jake Allen and was trickling towards the goal.
After his one-assist, zero-shots-on-goal performance in Game 1, Vladimir Tarasenko responded with his first career playoff hat trick to tie the series up, 1-1, against the Minnesota Wild. Jake Allen let one slip past him in the third period, but the St. Louis Blues dominated in Game 2 and will now have to win on […]
