Video: Jaroslav Halak makes a bizarre save with his shoulder

Here’s a save you may have never seen before. Jaroslav Halak stopped an initial shot and then trapped the puck against the crossbar with his shoulder as it started to trickle over his body. File this one under the “couldn’t do it again if he tried 100 times” category.

New York Islanders: Top 5 free agents to target

Garth Snow already made a huge splash this offseason. Yes, I know, Jaroslav Halak is the only player that has been added to the team since the end of their abysmal season. Yesterday was a sign that Snow is nowhere near done retooling this team, though. Trading a conditional 5th round pick for an aging 38-year Dan Boyle seems silly. Not as absurd as you may think. Below are my top...

Halak is not dwelling on his subpar Olympic performance

ST. LOUIS -- Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak offered a bit of a disclaimer when he talked about his Olympics experience with reporters following practice Monday at the St. Louis Mills. "Except the fact that we didn't win, it was a really good experience to see the best hockey players in the world, the best athletes there, and it was fun to be there," he said. Halak...

It's Halak to the rescue in Blues' 2-1 victory over Coyotes

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues are off to the best start in franchise history and keep finding ways to win despite a roster that hasn't been at full strength for much of the season. But there's still that one nagging question that no one knows the answer to, the query that likely can't or won't be answered for another few months. Maybe until it's too late....

Halak is living up to his designation as Blues' No. 1 goalie

ST. LOUIS -- Outside of the St. Louis Blues clearly defining themselves as a true NHL heavyweight, this recent road trip also cemented Jaroslav Halak as the Blues' No. 1 goaltender. This was the plan coming into the season, and coach Ken Hitchcock has stuck to his word. "He's our number one," he says. This shouldn't take anything away from Brian Elliott...
