Martin Brodeur lost in his debut with the St. Louis Blues, but the big story doesn’t involve the veteran goaltender’s play in net. For the most part, Brodeur was solid, but the same can’t be said about the team’s defense and special teams. Just one season ago, goaltending was believed to be the major issue […]
Jake Allen held a contest in which fans could design his new goalie mask. After a ton of submissions and some voting, the winner was chosen. The design was then transformed into the lid you see below. A lot of fans were skeptical after the winner was chosen, but the design looks much more impressive […]
Steve Ott doesn’t score goals or set up many offensive plays, but he is more than capable of delivering some huge hits. Here he crunches Andrew Shaw with a big hit.
It’s official – Martin Brodeur is now a member of the St. Louis Blues. For the record, it felt really bizarre to write that sentence and for it to actually be a reality. Brodeur’s deal with the Blues is for one-year and $700,000, but his deal is all about the bonuses. That final aspect of […]
Zach Parise wasn’t too happy with the St. Louis Blues following the Minnesota Wild’s shootout loss. Parise was frustrated with how the Blues handled themselves out on the ice and accused them of being bullies. First, Parise believed the Wild deserved to win: The Wild held a distinct advantage in the shots department, besting the […]
The St. Louis Blues were dominant for long stretches of their games against the Edmonton Oilers. The final shot tally after regulation was 37-15 in favor of the Blues. Though the Blues backed down and almost disappeared entirely during the second period, the overall effort was just enough to get the job done. Edmonton goaltender […]
After seeing his Iron Man steak end at 737 games, Jay Bouwmeester is about to miss his third consecutive game when the Blues host the Oilers on Black Friday. Bouwmeester has been sidelined due to the always vague lower-body injury, but is reportedly closing in on a return. Here are the details from Jeremy Rutherford: […]
Here’s a scene I never thought I’d see: Martin Brodeur in a Blues uniform. In fact, I never thought I’d see Brodeur in a blue uniform. We’ll have to wait and see how Brodeur fits in with the Blues. The team should have a decision by next week.
The Blues-Senators game on Tuesday night was a feisty one. The Blues were defeated in a shootout after coughing up a two-goal lead, but the whole night may be remembered for all of the big hits and a memorable Ryan Reaves fight with Eric Gryba. Gryba wasn’t too pleased with all of the “yappy” Blues, […]
The St. Louis Blues have invited Martin Brodeur to practice following the Brian Elliott injury. Earlier the Blues announced that Elliott would be out with a lower-body injury and that Jordan Binnington would be called up. This seemed like a temporary fix and it wasn’t long before the speculation started suggesting the Blues may need […]
UPDATE: It looks like the Blues will look for outside help. ********* Brian Elliott has been diagnosed with a lower-body injury, as reported by the team’s website. The injury occurred when Elliott was collided with during the second period against the Ottawa Senators. Elliott fell backwards and appeared to awkwardly twist his knee. There haven’t […]
It’s time to warm up the hot stove! The Edmonton Oilers are apparently willing to trade just about any player on their roster in return for a top center. This led Blues fans to connect the dots while urging the team to ship out Patrik Berglund. Now, no one said Berglund is a top center […]
The St. Louis Blues have been struggling to find their offensive balance. While the STL line continues to roll and score on a nightly basis, the rest of the key players have been mostly silent. I already touched on the fact Paul Stastny has been off to a slow start, but other skaters (T.J. Oshie, […]
It was an incredible run, but Jay Bouwmeester’s Iron Man streak has ended. After 737 consecutive games, Bouwmeester is forced to miss Sunday’s contest against Winnipeg due to a lower-body injury. Bouwmeester’s 737-game streak was the longest in all of sports. Considering how common injuries are in hockey and how physical the sport can be, […]
Expectations were pretty high when the Blues announced Paul Stastny would be joining the team. Fans expected Stastny to jump right in and be the player in the middle of the ice the team has been lacking. They hoped Stastny would bring balance to the St. Louis offense and make the team’s offense a bit […]
