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.

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 […]

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.

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.
