Given the outdoor facility in St. Louis is named “Busch Stadium,” it seems unlikely St. Louis might ever host one of the outdoor NHL games sponsored by Coors. But a game in Nashville might be a good alternative. In an event that had that kind of feel, with lots of St. Louisans in the building and many more “tailgating” outside, it seems odd to label the Blues’ 4-1 victory over the Nashville Predators Saturday night as a road game. It seemed more like a neighborhood party. “It was amazing,” Blues forward Patrik Berglund said. “It felt more like a home game. After I woke up from my nap, I even heard ‘Let’s go Blues’ from the bars down the street. That’s pretty cool when you’re waking up from your nap and hearing that.” The outcome allowed the Blues to sweep the Predators 5-0-0 in the season series. It is the first series sweep, with at least five wins and no losses, since the Blues went 8-0-0 against the Los Angeles Kings in 1969-70. That would be the Eddie “Clear the Track” S

Yeah, you saw Steve Ott's face before he became a Blue -- in 'Dodgeball'

    ST. LOUIS -- When the St. Louis Blues made their big trade late last month, they probably didn't know they were trading for a famous pirate. Steve Ott, the forward acquired from Buffalo along with goalie Ryan Miller, bears a striking resemblance to the character Steve the Pirate from the 2004 movie "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story." That became a source of many...

Hitchcock ‘wants to try’ moving Backes to right wing

Things have been going well for the St. Louis Blues lately, but that won’t stop coach Ken Hitchcock from tinkering. Hitchcock’s latest idea is to move center and captain David Backes to right wing. As Jeremy Rutherford of The Post-Dispatch shares, the coach wants to take advantage how his players can take faceoffs and how intelligent they are. “I want to try it,” Hitchcock...

Their success against the Central Division can also be added to that list. St. Louis seeks to remain unbeaten in regulation against the Central and complete its first-ever season sweep of the Nashville Predators on...

GIF: Steve Ott tricks Colton Sissons, steals the puck

Steve Ott's voice is one you'll hear pretty often during a hockey game. Ott is almost always chirping the opposition, trying to stir things up and get his team motivated for their next shift. On Saturday night in Nashville, Ott used his words to trick Nashville's Colton Sissons into turning the puck over by calling for a drop pass.  Brilliant move by Ott. Sissons...
