On the road again: Blues in Dallas to begin crucial six-game trip

Brian Elliott contributing on offense too

Brian Elliott has had an outstanding 2014-15 to date and he’s a big reason why the Blues are pushing towards the top spot in the Central. With Jake Allen developing slower than expected, Elliott has had additional pressure and responsibility placed upon him and he has continually risen to the challenge. Against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Elliott was even involved with the team...

Jake Allen developing slower than expected

Heading into the 2014-15 season, it was clear that Brian Elliott was the starting goaltender of the St. Louis Blues. At least, that’s what the Blues were preaching. Fans were content to debate which goaltender should be the top option in St. Louis. As the season started, the belief was that Elliott and Jake Allen would share a 60-40 split and that Allen may very well succeed Elliott...

Blues are 2-0 on road trip but could use more scoring

The St. Louis Blues have been superb on the road recently, but their struggles with the Vancouver Canucks aren't limited to the Pacific Northwest. The Blues look to remain perfect on this trip Sunday night by avoiding a slow start against the Canucks, who are coming off one of their worst efforts of the season.

For slumping Blues, long road trip offers chance to hit reset button

ST. LOUIS --The Blues locker room didn't feel much like one that belongs to the team with the third-best record in the Western Conference on Tuesday night. A few minutes before, a smattering of boos rained down from what was left of a sellout crowd as St. Louis trudged off the ice following a 5-2 loss to Montreal. It marked the first time they've lost back-to-back home games since...

Slow start, defensive lapses cost Blues against Montreal

ST. LOUIS -- Two nights after the Oscars, the Blues did everything but lay out the red carpet for Montreal's forwards on their direct path to the net. St. Louis didn't offer much resistance to the Eastern Conference leaders and fell 5-2 to cap off their first two-game home losing streak all season. Far too many mistakes on both sides of the red line left coach Ken Hitchcock searching...

Penguins dictate the pace in decisive victory over exhausted Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Saturday morning Blues coach Ken Hitchcock warned that his team would be in trouble if it let the speedy, skilled Penguins dictate the pace of the game. Pittsburgh proved him right from the opening faceoff, sending St. Louis to a 4-2 loss that wasn't really that close. An up-and-down game rarely favors the Blues, especially against opposing forwards such as Sidney Crosby...
