Blues back on a roll after beating Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs were in town on Thursday, first time in more than two years. They should visit more often. The Blues put more distance between their recent slump with a dominant 6-3 victory over the visiting Leafs in front of 16,073 holiday shoppers at Scottrade Center. There were several curiosities about the date with the Eastern Conference Leafs, who so generously sent...

Colaiacovo back on the ice with Blues

Carlo Colaiacovo made a quick “second” impression Monday night. Beginning another stint with the Blues almost five years to the day after he arrived here in a trade, Colaiacovo had an assist on his first shift back with the club. It came on the Blues’ first goal by Vladimir Sobotka in their 3-0 win over Minnesota. Colaiacovo played his first game in St. Louis on Nov. 26, 2008...

Carlo Colaiacovo will give Blues depth on blue line

ST. LOUIS -- A show of hands, please: Raise your hand if you saw the signing of Carlo Colaiacovo coming. Nobody? Hello? Bueller? Bueller? Didn't think so. Colaiacovo didn't see it coming, either.

Colaiacovo calls return to Blues 'too good to be true'

When the situation presented itself for Carlo Colaiacovo, it was a no-brainer for the veteran defenseman to go back to familiar territory. Colaiacovo, 30, was on the ice for the morning skate Thursday with the St. Louis Blues after settling immigration paperwork, passing his physical and then making his one-year, $550,000 one-way contract official. Colaiacovo played for the Blues...

Carlo Colaiacovo signs a one-year deal to return to St. Louis

A familiar face is back in St. Louis. Defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo has signed a one-year deal to return to the Blues, pending a medical exam. The move to bring in additional depth at defense was made after the Blues learned Jordan Leopold will be out for at least two months.  Don't panic quite yet. It's safe to assume Colaiacovo was brought in simply because the Blues...

Colaicovo Talks After Learning He Is Being Bought Out

from Bill Roose of the Wings website, As a newlywed, the last thing Carlo Colaiacovo thought he’d have to do this summer was shop for a new job. “I got married over the weekend, so it was something that wasn’t even on my mind,” he said. “I’ve been hearing a lot of rumors over the last couple of weeks, but I really didn’t know what to believe because I haven’t...

Red Wings overnight report: Fil gone, Colaiacovo bought out, DET unlikely to pursue big-ticket UFA’s

Okay, let's get down to brass tacks here. 1. The Red Wings swung and missed on Vincent Lecavalier. Why? He wanted five years and a no-trade clause, and he apparently has little concern for the concept that a team that has a shaky defense and no starting goaltender also has no cap space, barring trading Braydon Coburn and putting Chris Pronger on the LTIR, anyway, so what the...

Well that didn't last long.  Per the Free Press:  Vincent Lecavalier will not be joining the Detroit Red Wings, neither will David Clarkson nor Nathan Horton. Stephen Weiss, on the other hand, could be wearing a Wings sweater next season. And defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo will be bought out by the team. Poor guy barely gets a mention by Helene.  He deserves better after...

Red Wings overnight report: Wings take aggressive player movement stance; on Griffins and ‘Gus’

I was hedging my bets when I suggested that the Red Wings might change the script on us and make multiple moves to move bodies and clear cap space on Sunday morning, but I still did a spit take when reading MLive's Ansar Khan and the Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness report that, starting at the draft this Sunday, the Wings will avail itself of its options to make trades, buy...

Michael Frolik scores sick goal on controversial penalty shot call

The Detroit Red Wings held a 2-1 lead entering the third period of game six against the Chicago Blackhawks and when they started the third period the wheels fell off the wagon. The Red Wings were down 3-2 when Blackhawks forward Michael Frolik found himself on a breakaway.  Red Wings defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo backchecked and took a one-handed swing at Frolik, hitting his stick...

The Detroit Red Wings already were in trouble in Game 6 before the refs decided to award Michael Frolik a penalty shot. Frolik then shoveled some dirt on the Wings’ grave, burying that penalty shot past Jimmy Howard. The Wings led 2-1 heading to the third period, only to see Chicago quickly erase that gap and then take the lead with a pair of goals. Frolik then blocked a Carlo...

The Detroit Red Wings 4-3 decision to the Chicago Blackhawks yields a Game 7 on Wednesday in Chicago, it yields the Red Wings having given control of this series back to the Blackhawks thanks to three successively poorly-played games, and it makes me wonder whether the hockey gods want the Wings or the Hawks to win this one.
