As the NHL trade deadline neared at the end of February, many speculated and wondered in the St. Louis Blues would trade some of their depth and youthful talent for a high quality sniper. They type of player that a team that...
(For those of you viewing where Tumblr might be blocked for some reason, the second photo is of David Backes holding a puppy. Both photos elicit the same response in me. I'm sure that's normal.)
I know. It sounds like a terrible comparison, doesn't it? A cut of meat and a hockey player really shouldn't elicit the same reaction from people, should it...
Yes, to be sure. Shots, hits, hustle, special teams, you name it.Ok, in fights, perhaps a split decision. It was a surprisingly, very flat effort put out by the Hawks yesterday as they played the Blues in St. Louis. 5 - 1 was the final as the Blues took over the number one spot in the West. Vancouver, Detroit, and Phoenix also lost, by the way.
In net, it was the #3 NHL Star...
I’ve been following the reports of this kid since he joined the Ice Hogs. It’s funny how Alexander Salak has gone from originally being slated as Crawford’s back up with the Hawks, to Hutton’s back up in Rockford. Here’s the story from chicagoblackhawks.com;
The American Hockey League announced on Monday that Rockford IceHogs goaltender Carter Hutton has been named the...
Sadly, this was the only fight from the entire Blackhawks lineup on Tuesday night. When the dust settled, the Hawks had lost 5-1 in an ugly game, erasing any positive momentum they had created with wins in Ottawa and Detroit. … Continue reading →
Last year, when the Anaheim Ducks faced a season-defining stretch of games late in the season, they turned to Ray Emery. He did all that he could to help the Ducks make a push for the postseason, but Anaheim didn’t … Continue reading →
Jaroslav Halak won his sixth straight start to match a career best and St. Louis' penalty killers ran their streak to 32 stops in a row, lifting the Blues to the top of the NHL with a 5-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
Andy McDonald scored two goals and Vladimir Sobotka had a short-handed score for the Blues, who are tied with the New York Rangers with...
When was the last time the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks hooked up for an important playoff impacting game for both teams in the final stretch of the season?
April 1st, 2009. No fooling, seriously. The last time before that? It was well before the lockout.
But tonight, thatâs actually the case as the Blues can claim the top spot in the West with a win and a Detroit...
Goaltender Marty Turco still has to clear waivers to officially become a member of the Boston Bruins, but the 36-year-old was present outside the B's locker room following the team's 5-4 victory over the Maple Leafs on Tuesday. Turco discussed the possibility of joining the Bruins, saying that he hopes to do so soon, and that he's ready to contribute in whatever fashion...
By the look of a lot of Bruins fans' reaction, most people were expecting the Bruins would recall Khudobin or Hutchinson from Providence to replace Tuukka Rask. Instead, we got the surprise signing of Marty Turco. People don't seem pleased. Or maybe they were just shocked that Marty Turco was still playing hockey somewhere. But when Khudobin's injured and Hutch is green...
from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Today the St. Louis Blues sit atop the Western Conference standings with 91 points.
They lead the Central Division by two points over the injury-depleted Detroit Red Wings. They have an eight-point edge on the No. 5 team on this side of the league, the Nashville Predators
They are tied with the New York Rangers for the most points...
The St. Louis Blues have relied on their stingy defense to surge to the top of the Western Conference standings.
A home matchup with the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night might help them continue that success in their own end and add to that slim lead in the West.
St. Louis (42-18-7) is giving up only 1.88 goals per contest overall and has yielded two or fewer in each game over a...
Its like a bad joke. The Bruins have signed Marty Turco, which probably means that Rask is out for awhile. ******* Marty Turco, are you ******** me? There's a few things that worry me about this:
It means Tuukka Rask is out for awhile.
With Timmy and Turco, the Bruins goaltending age must average about 50
Someone in Boston may win $5
Marty ******* Turco. I need a drink.
(AP) -- After winning the first two of a challenging three-game trip, the Chicago Blackhawks know a final difficult task awaits against one the NHL's best home teams.
The streaky Blackhawks look for a fourth straight victory when they face the rival St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.
Since Jan. 21, Chicago (36-24-7) has lost nine in a row, then won four straight before losing...
