Video: Patrik Berglund was destroyed by Dustin Byfuglien

Usually the only hits featured on Frozen Notes are ones handed out by Blues players. Every now and then a hit is dished out on a St. Louis Blues skater that’s simply worth showing. Such was the case when Dustin Byfuglien ran over Patrik Berglund. Berglund actually had a decent game, scoring the only goal for the Blues in regulation. He was on a pretty bizarre line featuring Paul...

Blues continue to make the most of life on the road

A five-game road swing to open a stretch with 11 of 14 away from home would be a difficult challenge for most clubs. That might not be the case for a St. Louis Blues team that's playing its best hockey on the road. After opening their trip with a victory, the Blues look to nail down their ninth win in 10 road games Saturday night with their fifth in a row at the Western Conference...

Slow start, defensive lapses cost Blues against Montreal

ST. LOUIS -- Two nights after the Oscars, the Blues did everything but lay out the red carpet for Montreal's forwards on their direct path to the net. St. Louis didn't offer much resistance to the Eastern Conference leaders and fell 5-2 to cap off their first two-game home losing streak all season. Far too many mistakes on both sides of the red line left coach Ken Hitchcock searching...

Hitchcock says Blues aren’t following directions

Are you frustrated and confused by how the St. Louis Blues are playing of late? You’re not alone. The Blues are 5-5-0 over their last 10 games and are falling further and further behind the Nashville Predators. You’d think Ken Hitchcock has answers, but he seems as confused by the ugly play on the ice as everyone else. It sounds like the players aren’t following direction....

Elliott's recent struggles aren't all his fault, but they're still struggles

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' latest efforts to solidify a No. 1 goaltender haven't quite worked out as planned. Brian Elliott looked to be the man after he returned from injury and posted a 1.98 goals-against average to go with an outstanding .928 save percentage in eight games, good enough to earn a late invite to the All-Star Game in Columbus. But when the Blues' five-on-five play dropped...

With Shattenkirk out, Blues turn to Lindbohm for added scoring punch

ST. LOUIS --The Blues might have found an answer for how to recover some of the offense lost with their most productive defenseman. All-Star Kevin Shattenkirk likely won't return from an abdominal injury until much closer to the playoffs, but he still ranks fifth on the team with 40 points in 49 games. He played an especially important role on the power play, earning an assist on...

Hart Memorial Winner….. I say Vladimir Tarasenko!

When it comes to awarding the Hart Memorial Trophy for the most valuable player on an NHL hockey team, the default move is to always go with someone who has won already and/or someone who is always in the race for the trophy, even if they do not always win (like Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin). While this is understandable to some degree, it can lock out worthy candidates that are...

A Trade Target For the Blues

Despite the splashy acquisition of Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller last year at the trade deadline, the St. Louis Blues are really not ones to make big moves at this time of year. I mention that because I really do not know if the Blues are considering making any moves and it really is not their modus operandi to do so. The Blues are very much a homegrown team.
