Found April 23, 2014 on Frozen Notes:
Ken Hitchcock has announced that Brenden Morrow will miss the remainder of the first round against the Chicago Blackhawks. Morrow was able to play in Game 1 and Game 3, but will now miss the rest of the series with a lower-body injury. Hitch says that Morrow is out for for the series. #stlblues — Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) April 23, 2014 Morrow’s injury is actually a pretty significant one for the Blues. He has recorded just one shot on goal in his two games against the Blackhawks, but he has played an important role in front of Chicago’s net. When Morrow or another St. Louis forward is parked in front of the net, good things happen. As you might expect, details on Morrow’s injury are limited. Hitchcock’s statement reveals Morrow will be out for at least the next couple of games, depending on how long the series lasts.

T.J. Oshie one of the NHL’s most-Googled players

T.J. Oshie is arguably the most popular skater on the Blues. In fact, he’s one of the most popular athletes in St. Louis as well. It turns out that Oshie’s popularity isn’t constricted to just St. Louis. As seen in a report from Best Tickets (compiled by On the Forecheck), Oshie is third on the list of most-Googled players in the NHL. It’s safe to say Oshie’s performance...

Mind games: Hitchcock is coy about Backes' status for Game 4

CHICAGO -- The biggest question going into Game 4 of the Blues-Blackhawks playoff series Wednesday night at United Center is whether Blues center David Backes will play. Coach Ken Hitchcock turned that query into an improv comedy act during his pregame session with reporters early Wednesday afternoon, while shedding no light whatsoever on the status of the Blues' captain, who...

Blues must start converting more power-play chances

CHICAGO -- Through the first three games of their Western Conference first-round playoff series, the St. Louis Blues' penalty kill has been exactly what they need it to be, killing off 13 of 14 Blackhawks power-play opportunities. Unfortunately for the Blues, Chicago's penalty kill has been just as effective -- which means their power play has fizzled. The Blues ranked eighth...

Steve Ott is really excited to visit an American Girl store

Steve Ott has been widely criticized in St. Louis following the trade with the Buffalo Sabres. Ott has been valuable on draws and assisted on Alexander Steen’s Game 1 winner, but he really hasn’t made an impact yet with the Blues. Despite all of this, you have to at least give Ott credit for having a personality off the ice. First, Ott joked about his horrific plus/minus. Now...

Blues get a taste of their own medicine in Game 4 OT loss to the Blackhawks

CHICAGO -- It was quickly approaching midnight in the Windy City and 'Chelsea Dagger' was still blaring out of the speakers at the United Center, the sound no opposing team wants to hear. Blues goalie Ryan Miller sat quietly at his locker stall in the visiting dressing room, staring into space as his teammates dressed and the media swarmed in to ask what happened, where it...

Seabrook Should Be Out As Long As Backes

Chicago Blackhawk's defenceman Brent Seabrook's attempt to take off the head of St. Louis Blues captain David Backes at the end of Game 2 is an event that continues to reverberate, even though we are through Game 3 and the Blues are up 2-1 in the series.  Much has been made of the loss to the Blackhawks of a key defenceman for three games, however not much about how the...

NBC Sports app confuses the Blues with the Wild

The belief that the Blues don’t receive the respect or the attention they deserve has been shared by fans for ages. Listen to a broadcast on NBC and you’ll hear praises for Chicago and butchered St. Louis names. It’s almost impossible to stomach. It turns out that the NBC Sports Live Extra app doesn’t have too much respect for the Minnesota Wild either. As seen in this photo...

Oshie praises Tarasenko

Oshie have to say about the young Russian? Nothing but praise. Oshie surprised by Tarasenko: "Not really. The kid...

Video: Steve Ott crushes Duncan Keith

Steve Ott’s big hit on Duncan Keith in Game 3 won’t make up for Keith’s comments to a dazed David Backes, but it’s certainly a solid place to start. Take note: this is what a clean, hard hockey check looks like. The NHL may have to show this video to Brent Seabrook. Actually, you may have to show it to all of the Blackhawks fans in the crowd clamoring for a penalty.
