Blues look to continue success at home vs. Jets

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...

Blues Cashing in at Home

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.

St. Louis Blues starting to get back on track after Sharks win

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...

After a hot start with the St. Louis Blues, Yakupov finds himself the odd man out, as coach Ken Hitchcock will bench him during Wednesday’s home game against Chicago.

What can we expect from the St. Louis Blues?

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.
