Instead however, the St. Louis Blues reside in anonymity in the Midwest, quietly rolling along in an arena that’s on its third name, under ownership that has been trying to sell off part of the team...
With just over a minute remaining in regulation and the teams tied 2-2 on Tuesday night, Barret Jackman of the St. Louis Blues went to play the puck in the corner. Matt Cooke of the Pittsburgh Penguins was right on his tail and delivered a check.
