Blues have won with defense, then with offense, but rarely both at once

ST. LOUIS -- It's easy to forget this Blues team once struggled to score and survived by limiting goals from opposing offenses. Since Thanksgiving, they've had the league's most productive offense by a wide margin, posting a 14-7-2 record while averaging 3.65 goals per game. Defense has been their weakness, and some occasionally shaky goaltending has contributed to 2.78 goals allowed...

Blues ready to step game up as homestand gets more challenging

Petr Mrazek hasn't gotten many opportunities to start for the Detroit Red Wings, who have counted on Jimmy Howard to carry the load in net with veteran Jonas Gustavsson playing solid in a backup role over the last three seasons.

Brodeur granted one-week leave of absence to ponder future with Blues

ST. LOUIS -- The NHL's all-time winningest goalie needs a little time to think.  The St. Louis Blues announced Wednesday that goaltender Martin Brodeur has been granted a one-week leave of absence from the team.  The Blues signed Brodeur in November as a backup for Jake Allen after No. 1 goalie Brian Elliott went down with injury. And now with Elliott healthy and back between the...

Blues take care of business against Oilers for fifth straight win

ST. LOUIS -- Few teams in the NHL can match the Blues when it comes to taking care of business against lesser opponents. They don't always make it look as easy as Tuesday night's 4-2 win over last-place Edmonton, a game St. Louis controlled even before Vladimir Tarasenko's shot trickled past goaltender Ben Scrivens less than 14 minutes after the opening faceoff. But a deep lineup...

Allen answers the call in unexpected return as Blues rally

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' youngest goaltender emphatically put to rest any concerns about how he'd handle extended time on the bench while two established teammates played in front of him. A rough start for St. Louis and Brian Elliott Saturday night forced Jake Allen into emergency action for the first time in two weeks, by far his longest stretch out of the net all season. If he...

Brian Elliott had an outstanding first half of 2014-15

Entering the 2014-15 season, it was clear Brian Elliott would be the Blues’ first option in net. However, it was also clear that Jake Allen would see a significant number of starts and depending on his play, may surpass Elliott as the top choice as early as this season. With over half of the 2014-15 season in the books, the story hasn’t gone quite as expected but the early showings...

Blues are comfortable carrying three goaltenders for now

The St. Louis Blues found themselves in a difficult position when Brian Elliott returned from injury. The team had recently signed Martin Brodeur to a one-year contract due to the assumption that Elliott would be out for a decent chunk of time and that Jake Allen wouldn’t be able to hold down the fort on his own until Elliott returned. Initially, the Brodeur experiment seemed to...

For Blues' Hitchcock, three's company but not a crowd with these goalies

ST. LOUIS -- Three healthy goalies on the roster doesn't feel like a crowd to Blues coach Ken Hitchcock. When 42-year-old Martin Brodeur made headlines across the league by signing a one-year contract last month, he figured to last only a little longer than it took Brian Elliott to come back from a knee injury and reclaim his spot as St. Louis' top goaltender. But now that the time...
