ST. LOUIS Those who yearned for the St. Louis Blues to reach a new milestone in the Stanley Cup Playoffs became convinced: Maybe this could be the year.
Such optimism was snuffed by the same Los Angeles Kings that booted the Blues last year. This time, the defending Stanley Cup champion beat St. Louis 4-2 in the best-of-seven conference quarterfinals.
In the wake, Blues fans have...
Before diving into the discussion that is the goaltending situation in St. Louis, let's stop and think back to Fall of 2012. During those few months we were focusing all of our anger and hatred towards the NHL lockout and those responsible for putting our favorite sport on hold. We all just wanted to see the St. Louis Blues play, especially considering they would enter the year...

Yes that is right 30 NHL prospects who either are signed, drafted or listed by Central Scouting took part in the game between the Knights and Winterhawks (Stick...
What should the Blues do with Chris Stewart and Patrik Berglund? I recently touched on this topic when I outlined all of the restricted and unrestricted free agents the Blues have to address prior to the 2013-14 season, but I was curious what fans thought about the situation.

The Blues have built the framework for a winning program in the ultra-competition Western Conference.But the project remains incomplete. The Blues are good enough to play the defending Stanley Cup champions to a virtual standstill, but not quite good enough to beat them.They earned respect from their rival but they did not advance. The Kings set the standard in the NHL these days...

Mouth agape, Ken Hitchcock struggled to process the buzzer-beater that crushed the St. Louis Blues' season. Goalie Brian Elliott sank to his knees in disbelief.
For the second straight playoffs, the Blues finished with four straight losses to the Los Angeles Kings. They didn't get swept this time, it just felt that way.

This is a brutal picture in every sense of the word. At least you can’t question this fan’s dedication but her attire is brutal. From the shoes to the jean skirt to the awful shirt, all the way to the Vladimir Sobotka jersey. The tattoos and the died hair certainly add to the winning combination though.
