    The Blues Back at It Tonight

    Sunday night, it looked like the Blues might have hit a bit of a wall. Right about the time the second period opened, the Minnesota Wild just seemed to start pushing the Blues around. Watching the game, I thought to myself, "Wow. I knew it was going to happen at some point, and here it is." The 'i ... More >>

    The Blues (Cautiously) Extend Ken Hitchcock's Contract

    The St. Louis Blues announced today that the team has extended the contract of head coach Ken Hitchcock. Which just makes sense -- with ownership finally settled and the reigning Jack Adams award-winner running the team, you kind of expected this deal to get done. Although the terms of the contract ...

    Blues Stand (Mostly) Pat at the Deadline

    ​The NHL trade deadline came and went yesterday without the Blues making a big splash. They didn't go out and pry Rick Nash from the cold, dead fingers of Columbus; they didn't add either a goal-scorer or playmaker.
