    Ferguson Residents React to Dellwood Market Looting, Militarized Police Presence

    Just a few hours before the Dellwood Market on Chambers Street in Ferguson was looted Sunday night, Lindsey Johnson was there to buy some groceries. When she saw people rushing in and out of the small store on Chambers Street with stolen goods in their arms, it hurt. "We know the people who own tha ... 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 ...

    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 ...

    The St. Louis Blues Clinch on a Low Note

    ​Ladies and gentlemen, your 2011-2012 Central Division champion St. Louis Blues! It's been quite a ride getting here, but the team has really shown some growth, and the young players have come into their own, and the future is really bright for the squad, and yadda yadda yadda. Actually, ...

    The Blues' Sprint to the Finish Line

    The NHL season is coming to a close, and the St. Louis Blues -- excuse me, that should be Your First Place St. Louis Blues -- are getting ready for their final push to the finish line. ​There's plenty on the line for the Blues, who currently sit atop both the Western Conference and the NHL as ...

    Everything's Coming Up Blues

    Well, almost everything, anyway. If Winnipeg didn't suck so much it would have been everything. The Blues won again last night, slowly choking the life from the Anaheim Ducks over 60 minutes of grind en route to a 3-1 victory. Jaroslav Halak was nothing short of brilliant, saving 24 of 25 goals ... 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 ...

    Blues and Canucks: Headed for a Showdown

    The road doesn't get any easier for the Blues. In fact, it's just about to get real. Tonight the Blues travel to Vancouver to play the Western Conference-leading Canucks, the Blues' fifth game in seven days. The Canucks are skilled, they can score, and they have Roberto Luongo. In other words, ... More >>

    Canada's New Hockey Soundtrack

    So I was looking around yesterday at all the teams still left in the NHL playoffs, and I have to admit to being more than a little shocked when I realized that there isn't a single Canadian team left in the hunt for Lord Stanley's Cup. In fact, not only was I shocked by the absence, I was pretty di ...

    The Blues Lose, but the Future is Still Bright

    Okay, so it wasn't all that surprising, to see the Blues get eliminated last night. You get down three games to none, and you're going to get eliminated. It's just going to happen. I was hoping that they could avoid the sweep, but it wouldn't have mattered anyway. The Blues were toast. It was, ... More >>

    Since the First Minutes of the Series, the Blues Have Been Playing Scared.

    Well, it certainly wasn't the series we were expecting. The Blues' series against the Canucks, I mean. Not at all the way is was supposed to go. I know, I know, the series isn't over yet, so how can I be saying that it wasn't anything? "Still present tense, motherfucker!", I can hear you shouti ...

    Three Ways the Blues Can Even it Up in Vancouver

    The Blues will take the ice tonight in Vancouver, trying to even their series at one game apiece, after looking rather lifeless and a little bit overmatched in game one. What went wrong was fairly obvious: they got outplayed, outworked, and outphysicaled. Not the sort of thing that has happened ofte ... More >>

    Blues End-of-Season Awards

    To get your mind temporarily off last night's loss to the Canucks in Game 1 of the playoffs, and your cursing Roberto Luongo's name for the ridiculous saves he made, I wanted to hand out the regular season hardware. Mostly, I want to give out the awards before the playoffs have a chance to cloud my ... More >>

Didn't see that one coming, did you? So now we switch our focus and look ahead to the Blues' first round matchup, against the Vancouver Canucks. How the Blues attack the Can ... More >>

    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 >>

    Three Ways the Blues Can Beat the Canucks Tonight in St. Louis

    Yes, it is absolutely a cliche at this point, but the Blues are playing one of the biggest games of their season tonight. The Vancouver Canucks are in town, and the Blues desperately need to get a win here. I know, every game the Blues have played the past two months has been the biggest of the ... More >>

    The Blues: Scoring Down the Stretch, Day Off for Mason?

    Well, at least Tkachuk's wrist isn't broken. Sadly, that's really the only positive you can take out of last night's Blues game; they got shut out by Roberto Luongo (for whom I have an irrational hatred, for some odd reason), and I'm afraid it looks as if the Blues may be running out of steam.& ...

    The Blues Come Up Short When it Counts... Again

    Going into last night's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, plenty of talk was being devoted to the fact that the Blues had only lost one game in regulation in the previous eight contests. Unfortunately, that particular loss was a bad one, coming at the hands of Vancouver, one of those playoff b ... More >>

    With a scant twelve minutes to go in the third period last night, it looked as if all was well in Bluesland. The Note found themselves up 3-2 over the Vancouver Canucks, thanks to another strong showing by goalie Chris Mason, as well as goals from Steve Wagner, Brad Boyes, and Keith Tkachuk. All the ...
