It Was A Very Bad Night For Martin Brodeur

It's been four games now, and it has not gotten any easier to process the sight of Martin Brodeur in a Blues uniform. Many more games like last night's, though, and we won't have to see it much longer. » 12/19/14 9:18am 12/19/14 9:18am

Kevin Shattenkirk Blows A Pass, Knocks Over His Goalie, Gives Up Goal

Oof, this is a brutal three seconds for Kevin Shattenkirk. First, his attempt to breakout from behind the net by passing up the middle is foiled by Dale Weise, who picks the pass off. Then, in a rush to block Weise's shot, Shattenkirk knocks over his own goalie, turning what would've been a good goal-scoring… » 11/20/14 10:46pm 11/20/14 10:46pm

Vladimir Tarasenko Did It Again

This weave through the Devils defense, finished off with a bad-angle snipe, doesn't quite match the explosiveness of the similar move that Vladimir Tarasenko pulled off against the Rangers on Monday. Don't care. Still adopting Tarasenko as my new favorite toy this year. I hope he keeps it up, or he'll end up in the… » 11/07/14 9:25am 11/07/14 9:25am

Vladimir Tarasenko Will Make You Pay Attention

The 22-year-old Tarasenko was named the NHL's first star of the week yesterday, after putting up five goals in three games—including his first career hat trick. And then he waltzed into Madison Square Garden and did something vicious: » 11/04/14 9:51am 11/04/14 9:51am

No, The CDC Hasn't Quarantined The St. Louis Blues

It was an exciting hour or so this afternoon, when Twitter began passing the word that the Scottrade Center—home of the Blues, who have been dealing with a mysterious flu-like bacterial infection tearing through the roster—was being paid a surprise visit by the Centers for Disease Control. Turned out it was a joke by… » 10/31/14 2:13pm 10/31/14 2:13pm

Blues Fan Has Facepalm For The Ages After Toews Goal

A hearty thank you to reader Justin for pointing this out because it is wonderful. Look at this man who probably smacked himself in the face with such force that his whole section heard the thwack! Go ahead and expand this one to get the full experience, but don't stop there. There's a lot more going on around him,… » 4/26/14 10:05am 4/26/14 10:05am

Jonathan Toews's Overtime Winner Was As Close As It Gets

There's not much space at all between Ryan Miller's skate and the post, but Jonathan Toews used all of it on his backhand winner in overtime against the Blues. Toews gave the Blackhawks a 3-2 overtime win in Game 5 after he found himself at center ice all alone with the puck thanks to a Duncan Keith clearing attempt… » 4/26/14 9:37am 4/26/14 9:37am

Ugly Blues-Blackhawks Series Gets Uglier With "Wakey-Wakey" Taunt

Blues-Blackhawks shifts to Chicago tonight, with St. Louis up 2-0, but things are already getting desperate. Brent Seabrook was suspended three games for a dirty hit on Blues captain David Backes on Saturday, and now audio has emerged of that post-fight scrum appearing to capture Chicago's Duncan Keith taunting a… » 4/21/14 2:03pm 4/21/14 2:03pm

Blues Fan Bares Breasts During Chicago-St. Louis Overtime

First Joel Quenneville grabbed his nuts and now this: a Blues fan sitting behind the goal in St. Louis took a moment to urge her team on in overtime by flashing her breasts. Shortly thereafter, St. Louis scored and took a commanding 2-0 lead in the NHL's most x-rated series so far. » 4/19/14 6:58pm 4/19/14 6:58pm

Alex Steen Ends An Exhausting Three-OT Blackhawks-Blues Game

It took five periods and less than a minute to finish the first game of the Blackhawks-Blues series. Within 26 seconds of the third overtime, Alex Steen flicked in a back pass by Steve Ott for the 4-3 victory. Both teams will surely enjoy tomorrow's day of rest. » 4/18/14 1:13am 4/18/14 1:13am

Jaroslav Halak Doesn't Want To Face His Old Team

Tonight's Caps-Blues game sees a matchup between the West's best team and a club that's all but eliminated from playoff contention, one notable only for Washington goalie Jaroslav Halak's first chance to face his former team since being moved at the trade deadline. Except—Halak apparently wants no part of the Blues. » 4/08/14 3:52pm 4/08/14 3:52pm

Why Is T.J. Oshie So Good In The Shootout?

T.J. Oshie is on Team USA for his shootout prowess. This is no secret. The behind-the-scenes looks at the roster selection make clear that the committee ranked him behind other forwards like Brandon Saad on pure skill, but put him on the team anyway because he's deadly when going one-on-one with a goalie. The wisdom… » 2/20/14 1:34pm 2/20/14 1:34pm

The Time Brett Hull Stole His Coach's Jaguar To Party All Night

Brett Hull stories are the best. Drinking, partying, half-assing it on the ice—you could make up a Brett Hull story right now and I'd believe it, just because his escapades have reached that rarified air where "authentic" matters more than "true." But here's a true one! » 1/22/14 2:28pm 1/22/14 2:28pm
