The playoff schedules for the first round have been released and now we know when the St. Louis Blues and the Minnesota Wild will begin their opening round matchup.
The Blues-Stars game on Friday night was a blast from the past. Defense was optional for both teams as the Blues won 7-5. There were a ton of different angles and topics to discuss in a game that featured 12 goals, but one of the most notable was the fact the Blues and Stars combined to […]
The Blues are officially headed to the playoffs. The previous statement has been pretty much guaranteed for some time now, but the Blues made things official with a win over the Calgary Flames. The Blues are making their fourth consecutive trip to the second season and they will compete for the Cup for the 39th […]
The St. Louis Blues and the St. Louis Cardinals have had an extremely friendly and cooperative relationship over the last few years. Sure, the Cardinals bump the Blues out of the spotlight pretty much as soon as spring training starts, but it’s fun to see the Cards attend games and the two squads legitimately seem […]
Team calendars are a good idea in theory, but they almost always result in some awkward situations following the trade deadline. The Blues’ team calendar is no exception, but this year’s calendar is a bit more embarrassing due to one bad typo.
The St. Louis Blues are second in the Central and fifth in the NHL with 99 points, but there’s still plenty of areas for concern. The team’s offense has been improved this season, but of late, it takes a while for the forwards to find their mark. When it comes to the first period, the […]
The Blues found themselves trailing by two during the second period in Pittsburgh. The Penguins tallied two goals in 17 seconds and the Blues looked ready to pack it in and coast through the remainder of the contest. Then something shifted the momentum and got the Blues back in the game. Was it an inspirational speech […]
Prior to their game against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night, Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice had some pretty kind words for his opponent. In fact, he went as far as saying the Blues are the best team in the NHL.
There was a fun goof prior to the Blues-Jets game on Fox Sports Midwest. While showing the lineup for the night, the team’s defense had an unfamiliar face. Skating with Petteri Lindbohm was #19 … Joe Thornton? Via r/StLouisBlues: It would’ve made more sense had they shown Jay Bouwmeester (also #19) in this graphic, […]
The Blues’ 6-1 win over the Maple Leafs was a pretty lopsided affair. It took over 10 minutes for the Leafs to register their first shot on goal and the Blues had no issues moving the puck around the ice in a dominant display. There are a lot of ways you could describe the 6-1 […]
It looked like the Nashville Predators were well out of reach from the St. Louis Blues in the Central. Even as the Blues rattled off win after win, the Predators seemed to be able to match every point earned by the Blues. Thanks to the joy of NHL scheduling, the two teams completed their regular […]
The St. Louis Blues were one of the most active teams on deadline day, completing three trades which addressed needs both at defense and in terms of their depth. The Blues acquired Zbynek Michalek, Robert Bortuzzo and Olli Jokinen over the course of the day and in doing so they gave Blues fans a lot to talk about. […]
The Chicago Blackhawks have been busy. Heading into Monday’s trade deadline, the Blackhawks made big news by acquiring Kimmo Timonen from the Philadelphia Flyers and Antoine Vermette from the Arizona Coyotes. The Blackhawks parted with a total of three picks and Klas Dahlbeck to pick up both Timonen and Vermette. What do these trades mean for the […]
Are you frustrated and confused by how the St. Louis Blues are playing of late? You’re not alone. The Blues are 5-5-0 over their last 10 games and are falling further and further behind the Nashville Predators. You’d think Ken Hitchcock has answers, but he seems as confused by the ugly play on the ice […]
If you only saw the score from the Blues’ 5-1 win over the Bruins, you might assume it was a lopsided blowout. The reality couldn’t be any farther from that assumption. The Blues were outplayed for long stretches, yet emerged the victor in what might have been one of the strangest games of the season. […]
