By now, you've probably watched Alex Steen's short-handed winner a few dozen times. You've also probably memorized the call from John Kelly and Darren Pang by virtue of hitting the replay button on the video countless times. What you may have missed was the equally memorable radio call from Chris Kerber and Kelly Chase. Listen to Kerber's call here. The best part is that while most Blues fans were dreading a lengthy PK, Kerber pointed out that he'd "take a short-handed goal." Kerber's comment comes at the 0:32 mark of the video, roughly 32 seconds before Jonathan Quick handed Alexander Steen the puck and sent Blues fans home happy.

Steen's OT gives Blues 2-1 win over Kings

Oh, too casually, Jonathan Quick fiddled with the puck behind the net. Switching from backhand to forehand, last year's Stanley Cup playoffs MVP was set to re-load a Los Angeles Kings' power play that had more than three minutes left to decide overtime. Those extra seconds of stick-handling ended up giving Quick a jolt of humility. Alexander Steen swooped in and stole the...

Blues' Twitter account tries to get edgy, fails miserably

The St. Louis Blues Twitter account is a fairly tame beast. It provides updates during games, statistics and on occasion it offers fans a chance to win prizes. One thing it is not is snarky.

Blues Dominate Ice and Win

After the St. Louis Blues pulled out their 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in overtime in St. Louis last night, I was tremendously relieved.  Last year, the Kings took it to the Blues by completely dominating the ice.  I look back at that series and I think that the Kings won because they beat the Blues at their own game.Fast forward to today and you have to think that this...

Chip McCleary: Game 2, Blues/Kings: Will it be just as good as Game 1?

Some people claim that winning Game 2 in a series is more important than winning Game 1 - but this series may be different. It may be Game 3 that's the "must win" game. That doesn't mean any of the first 2 games weren't (aren't) important - but they were (are) important to each team for different reasons. For the Blues, they had to win Game 1. A loss...
