Strong start and solid defensive performance give Blues edge over Coyotes

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues finally got a chance to play as the better-rested team, following a day off after back-to-back losses and three games in four days. Their energy looked better and stayed more consistent, though they still found themselves holding on for dear life at the end of Tuesday night's 2-1 win over Arizona, which was playing its third game in four days.

Lehtera returns to Blues' second line -- where Stastny's been doing just fine

ST. LOUIS -- As hard as it is to believe, reuniting the STL line may not be the best option for the Blues.

Blues send forward Rattie down to Chicago

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' decision to send a forward back to Chicago could be a good sign for two others close to returning from injury. Center Jori Lehtera skated Saturday and may be able to play Tuesday night vs. Arizona, which would leave Ty Rattie without a spot in the lineup. He turned 22 last week the day before getting his first career point on an assist at Buffalo and played...

Schwartz's value to Blues goes beyond points and assists

ST. LOUIS -- Questions about Jaden Schwartz's return providing a boost are so familiar they've become something of a joke in the Blues locker room.

Everyone knows St. Louis has...

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.

Here we go: Blues' talented STL line looks to be back in sync

ST. LOUIS -- When it comes to pure skill and firepower, one line stands out for the red-hot Blues' offense. All-Star Vladimir Tarasenko leads the way, but he wouldn't have 23 goals without the help of forwards Jori Lehtera and Jaden Schwartz. All three are healthy and together again, so it's no surprise they're getting back on track and finding the net with increasing frequency....
