Offseason Edition: How to make the Coliseum's Finale Grand (Address our needs)

If you have watched the Islanders this season, you are likely aware of the issues that vexed the team early and often. Those issues rendered the Islanders’ late season surge utterly useless in a highly talent Metropolitan Division and an even deeper Eastern Conference. As the remaining elite battle for the Stanley Cup, the Uniondale residents are looking to retrace their steps to figure out where it all went wrong.

Hawks hand Blues first division loss in regulation

The Blues may be atop the Central Division at the moment, but it was their rivals the Hawks that walked away with a victory on Wednesday night at the UC.  Corey Crawford woud make 23 saves as the Hawks defeated the league-leading Blues in a 4-0 victory, their first division regulation-loss in the entire season.

 

The game was fast and physical from start to finish, and it was the Hawks who would get on the board first with a power play blast from...

Garth Snow and the Isles on the Brink of Greatness

As the Garth Snow front office era embarks on its eighth season heading the New York Islanders, many believe that the rebuilding period is over and the Isles time is now. The last seven years have been tough for Long Island’s team as about the only thing that seemed to be consistent was finishing last in the division and having the lowest payroll in the NHL. Both of these things took a turn for the better last season as Islanders made the playoffs and finished 28th out of 30 teams in payroll.(flickr/IslesPunkFan)

Blues vs. Sharks - Playoff Preview

Finally! After a long 82 game schedule the Blues can really get down to business. Champions are not made in the regular season, but are made through the playoffs. This time around, this St. Louis Blues team could make a strong run. They have the home ice set for at least the first two rounds, and looking at their record at home they could not ask for anything better coming into their first playoff game against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday.

But is home ice enough for these youthful Blues to take down a perennial Western Conference powerhouse in the Sharks? This preview should be able to sort all those questions out and more.

Sharks and Blues

I think a season sweep, and...

Record Setting Blues Keep on Impressing

Well it has been that kind of fairy tale year for the St. Louis Blues and their faithful fans, something we have all been waiting for, as the Blues ride right back to the top of the NHL standings (don't want to jinx it, but this fan thinks they will comfortably stay there). After last nights win against central division foes, the Nashville Predators, the Blues climbed to the top of the league, two points ahead of the East leading New York Rangers, who still sit with a game in hand however.

 

That was not all the Blues had to celebrate about last night, as the team also set some very impre...

A defensive and goaltending battle for the ages went down to the wire Thursday night at the Staples Center as the Los Angeles Kings earned a 1-0 shootout victory over the Western Conference-leading St. Louis Blues.

The only three “goals” of the evening, courtesy of Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and T.J. Oshie, came in the shootout. L.A.’s Jonathan Quick was rewarded with the win thanks to his thirty-five save effort—it was also the goaltender’s eighth shutout of the season...

St. Louis Blues Get Road Win in Ottawa

The Blues came out of Ottawa tonight with exactly what they needed. A win, a 3 – 1 win. After losing their previous road game in Nashville, tonight’s game was of utmost importance. As we discussed before, the games remaining on the blues schedule are lopsided when it comes to home games and away games, with many being played away from the friendly confines of the Scottrade Center.

 

Keeping their record at even through the two games allows the Blues the opportunity to come out of this mini three game road swing a game over .500. Their next game comes on Thursday evening in Ne...

Elliot Returning to Ottawa With Vezina Talk in Tow

 

Looking back to the start of the season, if you were to ask any hockey expert who the starting goalie of the St. Louis Blues would be, they would not have said Brian Elliot. If you asked any of those same experts whose numbers which goaltender would be represented by a 1.69 G.A.A, a .938 save percentage and five shutouts at the All-Star break, they would not have guessed Brian Elliot. Or even better, if you asked those same questions to the Sens Army they would not have responded with Brian Elliot.

 

However, if you were to ask Brian Elliot himself wha...
