Found April 12, 2014 on Pro Sports Daily:
The injuries just keep piling up for the St. Louis Blues. As do the losses. On Friday against the Dallas Stars, Blues’ forward Patrik Berglund left the game in the third period with what Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described as a possible shoulder/collarbone injury. According to Rutherford, Blues’ head coach Ken Hitchcock simply said Berglund “is out.” The Blues, now losers of five straight after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Dallas, began Friday’s game without David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Vladimir Tarasenko, Derek Roy, Brenden Morrow and Vladimir Sobotka – all because of injury. That forced the recall of scoring prospect Ty Rattie, who made his debut against the Stars.

WATCH: Mike Rupp ejected for dangerous hit on T.J. Oshie

Wild forward Mike Rupp was ejected and given a match penalty for intent-to-injure for a dangerous hit on St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie during the second period of Thursday night’s game in Minnesota. As Oshie attempted to skate the puck out of his own zone, Rupp came at him from the blindside and delivered a hit to the head. The Blues winger was able to get up off the ice...

Blues' Patrik Berglund joins half a dozen teammates on the shelf

Boy, when the St. Louis Blues fall apart, they don't screw around.Losers of five straight, the Blues have also lost David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Vladimir Tarasenko, Derek Roy, Brenden Morrow and Vladimir Sobotka - and now they can add centerman Patrik Berglund to the growing list, as the second-line dish man left Friday night's loss to the Dallas Stars in the third period...

After limping to finish line, Blues taking time to refocus before playoffs

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues' regular season finally, mercifully, came to an end Sunday afternoon at Scottrade Center with a 3-0 defeat to the visiting Detroit Red Wings, the sixth straight loss to close out this inexplicable season. Rest in Peace. Sunday's game was Fan Appreciation Night, which included the Blues handing over their jerseys to a group of fortunate...

Oshie exits after getting blindsided as Blues' skid reaches four

The Blues' 4-2 loss Thursday in Minnesota -- their fourth consecutive defeat, fifth in seven games and seventh in 12 -- comes at a higher cost than just continuing their unlikely late-season swoon. Already without Vladimir Tarasenko for an unspecified amount of time, the Blues played without captain David Backes (day-to-day, lower-body injury) and then lost T.J. Oshie to a cheap...

Injury bug bites again; Blues drop fifth straight

Another day, another loss and more bad news for the St. Louis Blues. The injury-depleted Blues' late-season losing skid has now reached five games after a 3-0 loss against the Stars on Friday night in Dallas. St. Louis (52-22-7, 111 points in 81 games) has now lost six of its last seven games and eight of its last 13. The Blues have also now lost three consecutive games against...

Wild's Rupp takes responsibility for hit on Blues star Oshie

Through 11 NHL seasons and more than 610 career games, Mike Rupp had never been fined or suspended by the league before Friday's suspension for a "late, illegal check to the head" in Thursday's Minnesota Wild win. Rupp believes the outcomes of a long NHL career outweigh what happened on Thursday when he hit St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie, with Rupp's left...

Jay Bouwmeester doesn’t miss a game in 2013-14, Iron Man streak continues ☆

Jay Bouwmeester is the only member of the St. Louis Blues to skate in all 82 games in 2013-14. Despite the injury bug claiming a huge chunk of the roster and almost every St. Louis forward, Bouwmeester managed to avoid any serious bumps and bruises and maintain a clean bill of health. At this point that shouldn’t really be that surprising, given Bouwmeester’s Iron Man streak...

Blues call on Ty Rattie

It’s Ty Rattie time! The St. Louis Blues have called on their best prospect as they take on the Dallas Stars on Friday night. With numerous forwards injured (David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Vladimir Sobotka, Vladimir Tarasenko, Derek Roy and Brenden Morrow), the Blues brought up Adam Cracknell, Keith Aucoin and the previously mentioned Rattie. The list of injured skates is a depressing...

St. Louis Blues: Ian Cole should play in playoffs

On Sunday afternoon, St. Louis Blues defenseman Ian Cole played his first game since March 29 and in only his second game since March 17. Cole's presence in the lineup against the Detroit Red Wings only happened because Barret Jackman was scratched from the lineup, as were many players because of injuries and just to get rest as the team limps into the playoffs.The absence of...

Bumbling Blues hope to avoid sixth straight loss in regular-season finale

Poor goaltending has plagued the Blues, with Ryan Miller posting a 4.04 goals-against average and .856 save percentage in four starts during the slide. The Blues also have just five goals in their last five games after previously ranking fourth in the league.

Desperate Blues absorb more blows

Where to start? The Blues fell 4-2 to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night, extending their losing streak to a season-high four games. Goaltender Ryan Miller was chased after allowing four goals on 13 shots. And already playing without captain David Backes due to injury, the Blues lost T.J. Oshie after a vicious head shot by the Wild’s Mike Rupp. There was more bad news for...

Mike Rupp Hit on T.J. Oshie

Wild forward Mike Rupp was given a match penalty for this hit on St Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie. According to the Blues, Oshie is listed as day-to-day. I think Rupp might get a few games for this hit, he's has a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety.

Wild win 4-2 against the Blues

In a game straight out of Bizarro land, the Wild beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 tonight. It was the first win for the Wild in a match against the Blues in 10 games. Kyle Brodziak scored not one, but two goals. In the opponents net, and with an actual goalie in said net. An OLYMPIC goalie even. Matt Cooke pulled a penalty. John Curry was freaking fantastic (more on him later). The...
