    How T.J. Oshie Won Over America, Our Hearts and (Maybe) the Cover of EA Sports' NHL 15

    St. Louis fans have loved him for years, but Blues forward T.J. Oshie wasn't exactly a "star" around the rest of the league. Before the end of this season, his best year was 19 goals and 54 points. (He bested that by a few points this year.) And although he brings much more to the Blues than points, ... More >>

    St. Louis Blues Take Out Newspaper Ad to Remind Fans How Disappointing Playoffs Were

    St. Louis Blues chairman Tom Stillman wrote a heartfelt letter to fans and season-ticket holders this weekend. In it, he came awfully close to apologizing for the team's playoff performance without actually using the words "I'm sorry." Stillman took out a three-quarters ad on the back page of the S ...

    T.J. Oshie's Game-Winning Shootout Goal vs. Russia Was Not "Best Winter Olympic Moment"

    When the United States Olympic Team began asking people to vote for the "Best Winter Olympic Moment," it seemed like a no-brainer to many people that T.J. Oshie's dramatic game-winning shootout goal against Russia should be the clear winner. Those people are wrong. Oshie became a national hero, dar ... More >>

    Sports Blogger Asks: Which is Worse -- Blackhawks or Ex-Girlfriend Porn Star?

    Edit note: Um, yeah. Ladies and gentlemen, these are dark days we're living in. Dark, awful, apocalyptically dark and awful days. Did I mention the dark part? What about the awful part? I'm pretty sure I did. The Chicago Blackhawks are Stanley Cup champions. Again. Okay, deep breaths. Easy, now ... More >>

    What to Like in Shortened Blues Hockey Season

    The powers that be in the National Hockey League finally got together, pulled their collective heads from their collective asses, and got a new collective bargaining agreement hammered out. (You like the repeated use of collective there? That's the kind of topnotch journalism you pay for with the RF ... More >>

    Blues Off to Mediocre Start in Simulated NHL Season

    The NHL lockout may stopped professional hockey in North America, but in the virtual world of EA Sports the game plays on.   The maker of the popular video game NHL 13 is simulating the NHL season online, and so far the St. Louis Blues are off to a less-than-stellar first half. As of Sunda ... More >>

    Blues' Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliot Named Top NHL Goalie Tandem

    I wrote yesterday about the Blues' brain trust of head coach Ken Hitchcock and General Manager Doug Armstrong both winning awards for themselves at the NHL Awards this week. And certainly, having those two names out there as the tops in their respective jobs brings plenty of prestige to the Blues or ... More >>

    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.) There were dozens, perhaps hundreds or even thousands of awards handed out (also a little iffy factually, maybe), virtually all of which bo ... More >>

    A Stanley Cup Prediction -- And a Question of Interest

    The Stanley Cup Finals begin tonight in New Jersey, with the Devils of the Garden State taking on the Los Angeles Kings, a hockey team we Blues fans are all too familiar with. I've actually watched a ton of the playoffs this year, even after the Blues were eliminated, which is a little unusual ...

    The Blues' Final Stand

    The word 'unceremonious' comes to mind at times like these. It's a good word, unceremonious; it is perfectly evocative of it's intended meaning. Whatever it is you're describing, whatever it might be that has happened, you know that there was no pomp, no circumstance, no fancy, no schmancy, no party ... More >>

    The Blues Get Embarrassed at Home

    It's been a great season for the Blues. 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. For long stretches of time, in fact, it looked like the Blu ... More >>

    The Blues Dig Themselves Into a Hole -- Again

    For the second series in a row, the Blues have put themselves behind the eight ball by coming out and playing one of their worst games in the opener. Worse yet, they've done it both times while playing at home in the Scottrade Center, where they were the NHL's best home team this season. Of cou ... More >>

    St. Louis Blues Go Full Wonka, Hide Free Playoff Tickets for You to Find

    The first two games of the Blues vs. Los Angeles Kings second-round playoff games don't have set dates yet, but they're guaranteed to be at the Scottrade Center. They'll set you back a tidy $65 to $442 a pop, plus service fees of course, and they're going fast. You could, however, win a pair if you' ... More >>

    Up Next For the Blues: Quickly Come the Kings

    The St. Louis Blues, having defeated their aquatic foes in round one of the playoffs, are now resting quietly, recuperating mind and body to prepare for the next challenge. It's a little like the dialogue screen from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, where the opponent would hurl some insult at Little Ma ...

    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.  ...

    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 >>
