For third straight year, St. Louis Blues make an early exit

ST. LOUIS (AP) For the third straight year, it's one and done for the St. Louis Blues. Jobs may be on the line after coach Ken Hitchcock's team won the Central Division but fell flat in the playoffs in a six-game opening-round loss to the Minnesota Wild. The Blues had believed this was their best chance at winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup with four strong lines, solid defense...

Video: Kevin Shattenkirk sarcastically applauds the officials

If you want to see why hockey fans believe the officiating in the NHL is the worst in any of the major sports, go back and watch the Blues’ 1-0 loss to the Jets. There’s the penalty on Paul Stastny which wiped out a goal. There’s the phantom high-stick by T.J. Oshie. There’s the missed high-stick on David Backes. That list just keeps on going. After a horrible night of officiating...

Elliott gets shot at redemption against Blue Jackets

Brian Elliott's last start was a bit of an embarrassment, and the same goes for his last game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He'll get a chance to forget about both Saturday night as the St. Louis Blues begin a three-game homestand while continuing their push for the Presidents' Trophy, and Elliott will have a long-absent defenseman back to try to help contain the streaking Blue...

Kevin Shattenkirk nearing a return

Kevin Shattenkirk is closing in on a return to the lineup and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Blues have dropped three in a row (though they did pick up a couple of points) and look unorganized and sloppy on defense. Offensively, the Blues haven’t been able to replace Shattenkirk’s production. Despite skating in just 49 games, Shattenkirk’s 40 points trails Alex...

Details on Shattenkirk’s injury have been vague, but the team did release the fact that Shattenkirk needed surgery to repair his ailment.

Blues go with small fixes over major additions at trade deadline

ST. LOUIS -- A busy trade deadline day resulted in minor fixes rather than major additions for the St. Louis Blues. It's a departure from the past two years for general manager Dave Armstrong, who added No. 1 goaltender Ryan Miller last March and top line defenseman Jay Bouwmeester the year before. But Monday's deals reflect Armstrong's overall satisfaction with his team, particularly...

With Shattenkirk out, Blues turn to Lindbohm for added scoring punch

ST. LOUIS --The Blues might have found an answer for how to recover some of the offense lost with their most productive defenseman. All-Star Kevin Shattenkirk likely won't return from an abdominal injury until much closer to the playoffs, but he still ranks fifth on the team with 40 points in 49 games. He played an especially important role on the power play, earning an assist on...

Shattenkirk's absence magnified when Blues go on the power play

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' streaky power play must find a way to break out of this season's longest slump without its primary leader. A recent stretch of just four goals in 35 opportunities stretches all the way back to the first period of a 7-2 win over San Jose on Jan. 8, well before Kevin Shattenkirk went down with an abdominal injury on Feb. 1. But they've looked even worse since...

What To Do With Kevin Shattenkirk

Normally when Alex Ovechkin is involved in a play and another player gets hurt, it’s because Ovie hurt him but this time Ovie wasn’t at fault when Kevin Shattenkirk tried to put hit on Ovie, failed, and crumpled to the ice unable to get up under his own power. It was a fluke, a freaky accident that has apparently ended the regular season for the Norris Trophy candidate and he’ll...

The transition game: Blues must put the kibosh on odd-man rushes

ST. LOUIS -- Lately, the moments when the Blues look ready to attack have turned out to be when they're most vulnerable. Too many odd-man rushes for opponents have long been a complaint this season for coach Ken Hitchcock, and the loss of active defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk to injury has made matters even worse. St. Louis may be doing a better job overall of controlling the puck...
