Ineffective PK Leads to Third Straight Loss for Blues

In front of an announced "crowd" of 9,412 in the Arizona desert, the Blues dropped their third straight contest in a close one. While they fought back time and time again, outshooting the Coyotes 38-27, their ultimate demise resulted from inopportune penalties and the inability to kill them off. A hat-trick from former Canes' sniper, Ray Whitney, and stellar goaltending from Ilya Bryzgalov certainly didn't help either. At the end of the night, the once red-hot Blues lost 5-3, are now staring directly in the face of a three-game losing streak and sit two points back of the division leading Detroit Red Wings. The Blues came in to this game without T.J. Oshie and decided to ...

Blues Drop First at Home to the Predators after the Gimmick (I mean shootout)

After getting the news that T.J. Oshie is going to miss three months recovering from ankle surgery, the Blues looked to put last night's debacle behind them and continue their undefeated stretch at home. They accomplished the former, but not the latter, losing in a shootout to the Nashville Predators. The Blues definitely tightened the ship and Jaroslav Halak rebounded from last night's performance, but the Blues coughed up the lead in the third period and couldn't win in regulation. Marcel Goc's sweet move ended the shootout after Pekka Rinne made all the saves he needed to. At least there were no pre-game scuffles over the warm-up soccer game.

Blues Get Hammered and Lose Oshie; Should Put This One Behind Them

The pre-game soccer game, which reportedly led to a skirmish of words between the two teams, was more exciting than the first period for the St. Louis Blues or the entire game for that matter. If they had a choice, the Blues probably would have elected to go home after the first and the rest of their play would have supported that decision. The league’s stingiest defense, who had previously given up a total of 18 goals over the course of 12 games, was pierced for eight goals on the night. The Blues' league best seven game winning streak was halted, as the Blue Jackets' fans were treated to a firing of the cannon eight times. Time to focus on tomorrow night's game. Every team is allowed a s...

Gateway to the West

Coming off two full days of rest and a shutout against the New York Rangers, the St. Louis Blues faceoff tonight against the previously red-hot Columbus Blue Jackets in Columbus, where they hope to continue their torrid open to the 2010-2011 NHL Season. The Blues currently own the league's second best record and sit atop the Western Conference: nine wins, one loss in regulation and two overtime losses. They have won seven games in a row, the league's longest, present winning streak. They are undefeated at the Scottrade Center. They own the league's best goal differential and have given up a paltry 18 goals against, which is two goals less than the next most staunch defense, the Boston Bruin...
