A Brian Elliott trade would be foolish

Recently there were rumors suggesting the Blues were considering a trade which would send Brian Elliott to a new team. The belief was that the club wouldn’t want to roll with three goaltenders once Elliott returned to full health and it wouldn’t make much sense to retain Elliott, Jake Allen and Martin Brodeur. A lot has changed since the rumor surfaced roughly 10 days ago. Brodeur...

Blues' penalty-kill units have been busy -- and increasingly effective

Blues more than happy to kick slumping Kings while they're down

ST. LOUIS – If the Blues are going to reach new heights this season, breaking out of a slump against the Los Angeles Kings figured to be one of the bars they would need to clear.

Kings-Blues Preview

The first time the Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues met this season, Jeff Carter's shootout conversion was the only puck to find the back of the net. Given the Blues' recent form, a home-and-home series that begins Tuesday night in St. Louis figures to feature a little more offense from at least one side. The Blues (20-8-2) have won four straight with 19 goals scored. The Kings...

For Blues' Allen, having Brodeur as a mentor is as good as it gets

ST. LOUIS -- Few young hockey players get a chance to compete against their idols who they admired while growing up and learning the game. Even fewer get the chance to be teammates and to some degree compete for playing time with their idols, an opportunity that has suddenly presented itself to Blues rookie goaltender Jake Allen.
