Is Allen the new number one? Has Ken Hitchcock lost his confidence in Brian Elliott. Simply, no and no. Hitchcock discussed the matter, as seen on STLToday: “Ells is the starter....

Blues credit Steve Ott’s fight for shifting momentum vs. Penguins

The Blues found themselves trailing by two during the second period in Pittsburgh. The Penguins tallied two goals in 17 seconds and the Blues looked ready to pack it in and coast through the remainder of the contest. Then something shifted the momentum and got the Blues back in the game. Was it an inspirational speech from Ken Hitchcock? A lucky bounce? No, it was a fight by Steve...

Kevin Shattenkirk nearing a return

Kevin Shattenkirk is closing in on a return to the lineup and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Blues have dropped three in a row (though they did pick up a couple of points) and look unorganized and sloppy on defense. Offensively, the Blues haven’t been able to replace Shattenkirk’s production. Despite skating in just 49 games, Shattenkirk’s 40 points trails Alex...

Video: It took two different reviews to overturn a Blues goal

There was a rather odd moment in the first period between the Wild and Blues. Jay Bouwmeester tossed the puck at the net and Patrik Berglund deflected the shot at the net. The twine moved and the horn sounded and everyone thought the Blues scored. Toronto reviewed the play and the officials signaled that yes, it was a goal. The horn sounded again and the official scorers were announced...

Olli Jokinen raves about Maple Leafs organization

By now, we’ve all heard countless stories and tales of how difficult it can be to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Demanding fans and even more demanding media have cast a dark cloud over the team and free agents have pursued different clubs as a result. Is all of the negativity overblown? According to Olli Jokinen, the Maple Leafs are an amazing organization and he doesn’t...

St. Louis Blues stockpiling depth at the deadline

The St. Louis Blues entered the trade deadline with cloudy expectations on what personnel to add. The most glaring need was right-handed defenseman and the going price on rentals, based off trades the past few days, have bordered insanity.

Blues go with small fixes over major additions at trade deadline

ST. LOUIS -- A busy trade deadline day resulted in minor fixes rather than major additions for the St. Louis Blues. It's a departure from the past two years for general manager Dave Armstrong, who added No. 1 goaltender Ryan Miller last March and top line defenseman Jay Bouwmeester the year before. But Monday's deals reflect Armstrong's overall satisfaction with his team, particularly...

GIF: Ryan Reaves reaches over the officials to punch Zack Kassian

Zack Kassian punched Ryan Reaves and then probably thought he was safe when the officials came in to break things up. Reaves had the last laugh as he reached over the officials and decked Kassian in the face. Both men earned two-minute roughing penalties and 10-minute misconducts.

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...
