    Vladimir Tarasenko and the Defenders: State of the Blues Offense

    The other day, I wrote a quick little piece about the Blues looking tired and hitting a bit of a wall in their last game Sunday night. Thanks to an error in utilizing the calendar function on my phone (I would like to blame Samsung for a grand conspiracy to make me look foolish, but it probably has ... More >>

    Game Notes: Blues 3, Predators 0

    It was a night of important rebounds for the Blues -- two of them, to be exact. The first is relatively easy to spot, as the team rebounded from their first loss of the season, a tough 3-2 defeat by the Blackhawks in Chicago, by beating the Nashville Predators last night 3-0. Back home at the ... More >>

    A Big Blue(s) Preview

    Tonight, at the Scottrade Center, the fated, the long-awaited, the eagerly anticipated 2013 Blues season will get under way. Okay, so it was really supposed to be the 2012-2013 Blues season, and all the Don King hype and rhyming in the world isn't going to entirely take the sting out of this la ...

    Blues Push San Jose to The Brink

    You know, I really love that phrase. The Brink, I mean. On the brink or to the brink, I really like it. Although On the Brink sounds suspiciously like a movie from the 80s to me, maybe with Moira Kelly in it or something. Still, it's a cool word, and I don't think it's used nearly often enough.  ...

    Blues Take 2-1 Lead With Brilliance in San Jose

    In the first game, the Blues dominated most of the way, minus occasional lapses, but were unable to solve Antti Niemi. They lost in double overtime 3-2. In the second game, the Sharks dominated the first period but put one in their own net. Jaroslav Halak stood on his head early, then was force ... More >>

    Three Keys to Victory: San Jose Sharks at Blues

    The Blues play tonight at the Scottrade Center, opening up their first-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks. Of the potential draws the Blues could have pulled, the Sharks would seem to be the most favorable for the Note; the Blues absolutely dominated San Jose this year, winning all fou ... More >>

    Brian Elliott Injured; Panic Ensues Just in Time for the Playoffs

    The Blues have been hit hard by the injury bug this year. Not that that's exactly anything new, of course; we've seen too many times the last few season this team derailed by players hitting the training table. But this year, it's been rough. The usual assortment of bumps and bruises, both uppe ... More >>

    Road Warriors: Blues Win Fourth Straight Away Game

    ​What was that thing? You know, the thing the Blues have so much trouble with. The, the thing? That one thing everyone kept saying was really the biggest thing that might keep the Blues from winning that cup thing? Oh, that's right. The winning-away-from-home thing. That thing. Well, the ...

    The Return of The Mac: Andy McDonald Returns with A Bang

    ​Two more home games, two more wins for the Blues over the weekend. Ho-hum. Ah, but wait! Something potentially much, much more interesting than a simple pair of victories took place this weekend at the Scottrade Center. (Not to say two wins isn't interesting; I'll take back-to-back wins ever ... More >>

    Blues Finish Up Road Trip With a Win

    ​The Blues wrapped up their mini road trip last night with a shootout victory in New Jersey, beating the Devils by a score of 4-3. T.J. Oshie, shooting first, scored the lone goal in the shootout (on what amounted to a changeup, no less), while Brian Elliott made three straight stops to secure the ... More >>

    Blues Score Three, Take Two Points From Senators

    David Perron, wicked handsome, wicked awesome. And no longer singing for the Eurythmics. ​David Perron, you magnificent bastard. Perron scored twice last night, helping the Blues to a 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators, who have suddenly gone from playoff contender to Tom Petty. (As in they ... More >>

    Blues Shut Out Canadiens, Take Over Division Lead

    ​The story line going into last night's matchup was supposed to be the return of Jaroslav Halak to Montreal for the first time since the Canadiens traded him to the Blues in 2010. There was plenty of buildup, plenty of anticipation. Enough, in fact, that there was really almost no way the game its ... More >>

    Game Notes: Blues 5, Stars 3, 26/12/2011

    ​The bad news is the Blues are headed into a tough stretch, playing four games in just six days including, bizarrely, two trips to Detroit just four days apart. (Speaking of, the intricacies of NHL scheduling continue to evade me. A lobotomized monkey with a dartboard  could do a better ... More >>

    Blues Close Out Homestand On a High Note

    Rangers, yes, but not necessarily from New York. Blues probably could have beaten these guys too, though. Also, I had a huge crush on the pink one when I was like twelve. ​The Blues put a right ass kicking on the New York Rangers last night, posting a 4-1 victory to close out what looked like a pi ...

    Blues Get Back on Track With Win Over Detroit

    ​Over the weekend, the Blues faced perhaps their first real bit of adversity since Ken Hitchcock took over as head coach, losing two games in a row and struggling badly against Chicago in the second loss. Coming out of back-to-back letdowns, last night's matchup with the always-hated Detroit Red W ... More >>

    David Perron to Return as Soon as Saturday?

    ​The Blues under new coach Ken Hitchcock have been nigh unstoppable, winning four games in a row, going 8-1-2 in his first 11 games at the helm, and picking up 18 of a possible 22 points over that time span. Suffice to say, things are looking pretty rosy around the Blues' clubhouse right now.  ... More >>

    The Blues' Blazing Start

    ​​I lucked out yesterday and managed to finagle myself a pair of tickets to the Blues game through a work acquaintance. Unfortunately, since it was a noon start (when did they start having hockey games in the middle of the day?), everyone I knew was working and unable to go with me. I briefly co ... More >>

    Breaking Down the Blues' Slow Start

    Sadly, it's become an annual tradition here in St. Louis, it seems: the Blues' Slow Start. Happens every year, right around this time, when we look at the record of our beloved boys in blue and notice they aren't doing so hot. ​This year, though, this seems a bit different. Oh, sure, they wer ... More >>

    Tonight is an exciting night if you're a St. Louis Blues fan. The team's top prospect, Lars Eller, will make his NHL debut at the Scottrade Center against the Calgary Flames. Eller will also become only the sixth player in NHL history of Danish descent. Personally, I'm hoping Eller can com ...

    T.J. Oshie Fakes Out Roberto Luongo, Canucks Leave as Losers

    Yesterday, I predicted the three things that the Blues had to do in order to beat the Vancouver Canucks last night. I said, in this order: 1. The kids need to do better getting into scoring situations;2. The Blues have to keep the Canucks' Sedin brothers from being a factor; and3. They need to ... More >>

In the NHL's YoungStars Game, the Blues had two players participating, and both showed well for themselves. Don't get me wrong; there have been plenty of reasons to be optimistic before now, but ...
