ST. LOUIS -- When the St. Louis Blues went through an offensive drought earlier this season, coach Ken Hitchcock and the players did not believe there was any reason to panic. It turned out they were right. After scoring just two or fewer goals eight times in a nine-game stretch from Oct. 25 to Nov. 10, the Blues have turned around and scored three or more in each of their last...

Home-ice advantage is something rarely talked about in November because it is mainly a postseason term. However, the St. Louis Blues have made it relevant with their play of late at Scottrade Center. The team has points in each of their last 10 match-ups at their home arena and have no desire to see that trend come to a close anytime soon. A streak that long is challenging to accomplish...

I normally don’t care that much about all the importance placed upon an early season matchup with the team that knocked you out of the playoffs, as a fan. It’s an easy narrative device, and the players have some extra motivation, but it’s not like it undoes the fact that the other team beat you. It is fun to win them though, especially in hockey. Revenge is a dish best served...
The St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks are going retro for their upcoming Winter Classic matchup. The Blues will wear throwback jerseys from their inaugural season in 1967-68 during an outdoor game at Busch Stadium against the Chicago Blackhawks on January 2.

After seeing his ice time dwindle in recent weeks, Nail Yakupov now finds himself riding the pine.

Yakupov’s play has trailed off as Hitchcock has given him limited opportunities, as the 22-year-old has seen 10...
Nine-year-old St. Louis Blues fan Alex Vaughn is on the road to recovery after being seriously injured by a puck while attending a game earlier this season. But his spirits were lifted when the Blues hosted him at the arena earlier this week. Vaughn, a hockey player himself, was struck just below the nose by a puck while attending the Blues’ game against the New York Rangers at...
There’s been a lot of talk about national anthem lately, but this is nothing but a positive national anthem story for once. The Vancouver Canucks welcomed blues musician and actor Jim Byrnes to sing the national anthem for the United States and Canada prior to Tuesday night’s game against the St. Louis Blues. Before Byrnes completed the singing of the national anthem of the United...
Despite last night’s OT loss to Vancouver, the new-look St. Louis Blues are off to an extremely strong start, winning their first three games against teams expected to be playoff contenders. The Blues have played like the fast and skilled team they’re built to be, while still holding their own physically, out-hitting both the Wild and the Blackhawks. Vladimir Tarasenko has scored...
The NHL regular season kicks off on Wednesday and the St. Louis Blues start the season against the Blackhawks. Hopefully it turns out similarly to last time the teams played. However, despite coming off of a 107-point regular season, and a trip to the Western Conference Finals, there’s a lot of questions surrounding this Blues squad. The guy who scored that goal(and a ton of other...
Ken Hitchcock and the St. Louis Blues announced a succession plan earlier this offseason, as Mike Yeo was announced as the head coach beginning in the 2017-18 season, while Hitchcock would sail off in the sunset following the completion of the 2016-17 season. Hitchcock’s departure made sense, despite recent success in St. Louis, as his time behind the bench with the Blues reached...
