Found April 03, 2013 on STLSportsMinute:
The St. Louis Blues won a huge game on Tuesday night against the Minnesota Wild, breaking a three-game losing streak and possibly turning the momentum on a season that has just 14 games remaining on the schedule. As the Blues continue to jockey for playoff contention, general manager Doug Armstrong bolstered the lineup by bringing in a pair of left-handed defensemen via trade. Jordan Leopold was acquired from the Buffalo Sabres over the weekend and Jay Bouwmeester was acquired on Monday night. The Cruddy Show broke it all down in a 45 minute episode that featured a 20 minute segment with hockey analyst Tom Casey, who helped break down the trade, the meaning of Jaroslav Halak's groin injury and whether he thinks the Blues have what it takes to make a deep playoff run.

Red Wings-Coyotes quick take: an earned loss

Contrary to what I'm sure will be suggested over the next 24 hours, the Detroit Red Wings' 4-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes was not the result of a team collectively and individually choosing to "screw the pooch" to "send a message" voicing their dissatisfaction with the team's management.
