    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 Brass Take Home All The Awards That Matter

    The 2012 NHL Awards were held last night in Las Vegas, Nevada, also known as The Hockey Capital of the Western World. (Note: this may not be entirely accurate.)

A really, really great season. They started off slow under Davis Payne, but ever since making a coaching change and bringing in Ken Hitchcock, the Blues have been among the best teams in the NHL.

    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 >>

    Game Notes: Blues 1, Wild 0 -- A Shutout at Home

    Well, I think it's pretty clear now that Andy Murray may quite possibly be the worst coach in the history of the National Hockey League, and Davis Payne is unequivocally the greatest coach in the history of said league. ​What's that? You don't believe me? The record is clear: under Murray, th ... More >>
