The St. Louis Blues rebounded on Friday night after the shellacking at the hands of the Chicago Blackhawks the night before by beating the Edmonton Oilers 4-2. Head coach Ken Hitchcock made some changes to his lines before the game with the Oilers. One of the changes involved moving rookie Jaden Schwartz to the top line, which meant left winger David Perron was moved down to the second line as a result. The move paid off as Schwartz scored a goal and helped on another in the Blues' win. Schwartz sparked the top line and showed signs of the feisty, talented play-maker he is capable of being.

The Blues Still Looking For Consistency

from Bernie Miklasz of the St, Louis Post-Dispatch, What we haven’t seen from the Blues is consistent play, effort or goaltending. The Blues have strayed from the mandatory discipline and the determination that gives Hitchcock Hockey its winning structure. The offensive-zone pressure has evaporated too often. The out-of-position defensive breakdowns are calamitous. The...

Halak comes way out of net to stop breakaway

Jaroslav Halak came flying out of his net to stop Ben Eager's breakaway. All right, that's an understatement. Let's try that again. Jaroslav Halak came way, way out of his net to stop Eager's breakaway.  Noticing that Eager was about to be in all alone, Halak rushed out and slid on the ice, poking the puck away at the top of the two circles. Halak's slide carried...

Blues right back at it tonight against the Oilers

(AP) -- It took a game against the NHL's worst team last week for the St. Louis Blues to avoid their longest home losing streak in six seasons. Maybe a visit by the Edmonton Oilers can help the Blues protect their home ice. Coming off its first home shutout loss in two seasons, St. Louis goes for a sixth straight victory with the Oilers in town on Friday night when these clubs...

Richard Cloutier: Oilers in 12-Team Race for 3rd

I'm not going to get too overly excited analyzing the Oilers loss on Friday to the St. Louis Blues. The Oilers are on a ridiculously long road-trip that they're going to be lucky to finish with three wins over nine games. Three games in and the Oilers are 1-1-1, which is about as much as we can hope for. With respect to the loss to the Blues, there were "okay"...
