The Flames will face a familiar foe tonight when they head into St. Louis to face Jay Bouwmeester and the Blues. It will be the first time the Flames will face-off against Bouwmeester since the Flames traded him to the Blues on April 1st, in exchange for Mark Cundari, goaltender Reto Berra and now their 1st round pick in this June’s draft.
As the Blackhawks faced another division opponent and another team desperate for points to make the playoffs, it was the Hawks that remained standing at the bell. Coming into the game it was the St. Louis netminder Brian Elliott who was coming into the game with a shutout streak but the Hawks not only answered they pitched a shutout for themselves.
Corey Crawford gets the shutout but the entire team played solid defense in front of him. It’s not that the Hawks didn’t make mistakes it’s that they covered for each other when they got in trouble and continue to improve their team game that is impressive.
The Flames return home from their three-game road trip, which saw their winless streak away from the Dome reach nine games (0-8-1). The Flames welcome the St. Louis Blues to town, and will look to continue their success at home, trying to extend their winning streak to seven games. The St. Louis Blues will finish off back-to-back games after defeating the Oilers 3-0 last night in Edmonton
The Flames get ready to play their 8th home game of the season as the St. Louis Blues come to town for the first of three meetings between the two clubs. The Flames did not fare well against the Blues last season as they lost three of their four meetings, while only scoring a total of six goals.
The Kings (3-5-1; 8 points) have a quick turn around after a devastating 3-2 loss in Detroit when they head to St. Louis to take on the Blues (6-4-1; 13 points) tonight at 5. The Kings have dropped their past two games and are 1-3 entering the final leg of their road trip. After a red hot start the Blues are on a four game skid earning only one point. St. Louis lost Saturday night 6-5 (SO) to Anaheim and hope to end their four game home stand on a positive note.
The Kings offensive woes continued in Detroit when they registered a season high 47 shots against Robby Howard only converting two for goals. St. Louis has allowed 22 goals in the past four games with a suspect ...
The Chicago Blackhawks completed the Opening Night hat trick, securing their their win in a row in the third home opener they participated in -- this time, on home ice at the United Center in Chicago.
Before an opening night crowd of 21,455 - the largest opening night crowd in the NHL this season - the Blackhawks had a 3-0 lead and it looked like they might get their first shut out in nearly two years. However, St. Louis managed a late rally, scoring twice in the third period, to keep the game close.
Patrick Kane started the scoring at 7:20 into the first period. It was another 21 minutes before anyone would tally again; this time it was a Duncan Keith shot that d...
In just a few hours, the "feathered faithful" will fill the United Center to capacity, and the rafters will hopefully thunder to the chorus of "Chelsea Dagger", the Blackhawks' signature goal song.
There is no banner to raise to their own rafters this year, but the Blackhawks want to have a good home opener after ruining LA and Phoenix's.
Chicago will be kicking off their home games against one of their fiercest rivals, the St. Louis Blues. The Blues will be rolling into town on the back end of a road back-to-back after dispatching the Nashville Predators in a shootout on Monday night, 4-3. Prior to visiting Nashville, the Blue...
It was on Twitter where former Islanders fan favorite Dave Scatchard retired from the game of hockey after talking to doctors that determined it wouldn’t be safe for him to continue playing hockey because of concussions. Today, Scatchard tweets about his wife, three children, and still keeps in contact with former teammates and brothers from the NHL. According to his bio, he is an entrepreneur.

Islanders fans should remember Scatchard for his hard-nosed play on the ice as he never thought twice about throwing the body or dropping the mitts. Scatchard did whatever it took for the team to win, while skating around in his always-recognizable number 38 jersey.
