Blues Turn To Rookie Goaltender Jake Allen

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Less than an hour after Tuesday’s 6-4 loss to Los Angeles, in which the Blues gave away a 4-1 second-period lead, the team announced at 1 a.m. St. Louis time that it had recalled Allen from Peoria.

Coyotes back at it against struggling Blues

A popular urban legend in the NHL is the curse of the Presidents Trophy, a notion that finishing first overall in the regular season dooms you to playoff failure. The notion ignores the fact that its still better to finish first than anywhere else, given the fact that one-quarter of the teams who have done so over the past 20 years have also won the Stanley Cup -- a higher percentage...

Kyle Clifford K.O.’s Roman Polak with uppercut

Los Angeles Kings forward Kyle Clifford was dead set on fighting St. Louis Blues defenseman Roman Polak.  Dustin Penner came on the ice for a line change and Clifford sent him off the ice.  Clifford threw hard and often early in the bout and connected on a solid uppercut that sent Polak down to the ice.  Polak went to the locker room immediately and didn’t look so good as he...

Roman Polak vs Kyle Clifford Includes This Vicious KO Chest Shot

At first it looked like Kings tough guy Kyle Clifford caught Blues pugilist Roman Polak with a right to the chin. However, when you look at the replay, it seems Clifford’s punch is more of an upper chest to neck shot. What matters is that Polak dropped, a linesman covered him up, a trainer came out to make sure Roman wasn’t dead and Clifford skated off to the penalty box. Give...
