Ott-Lapierre-Reaves line is playing above its fourth-line status

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues got a scoring boost from an unlikely source to bring a positive end to their road trip over the weekend in Canada. Steve Ott, Maxim Lapierre and Ryan Reaves have found plenty of success in their main role of providing energy and physicality as St. Louis' fourth forward line. When they can add goals to the mix, as they did in wins over Ottawa and Winnipeg, the...

Wild fall 4-1 in fight-filled pre-season tilt with the Blues

Maxim Lapierre tries to keep the puck from Mikael Granlund. Almost every kid knows that feeling from Elementary School, that anxious moment when out at the playground kids pick teams for football, kickball, baseball or hockey.  It often goes beyond just wondering whose team you’re going to end up on, as much as you may simply hope to avoid the indignity of being picked last....

Blues get a taste of their own medicine in Game 4 OT loss to the Blackhawks

CHICAGO -- It was quickly approaching midnight in the Windy City and 'Chelsea Dagger' was still blaring out of the speakers at the United Center, the sound no opposing team wants to hear. Blues goalie Ryan Miller sat quietly at his locker stall in the visiting dressing room, staring into space as his teammates dressed and the media swarmed in to ask what happened, where it all went...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Wednesday (24th)

Just a few things that caught my eye: Maxim Lapierre pulled a Matt Cooke, except Patrick Sharp wasn't hurt. But is it really any different? And should he still have been in the game late in the second when he notched the tying goal? Discuss. Paul Martin, postseason leading scorer. WTF? Seriously -- check the list. Is Sidney Crosby at 75 per cent an asset or...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Friday

Just a few things that caught my eye: Lift and separate. Divide and conquer. Milan Lucic just has a way of saluting an opponent's manhood, doesn't he? And we think Maxim Lapierre, Matt Cooke and even his teammate Brad Marchand are dirty. Pavel Datsyuk. "Datsyuked." I'm going to just leave it at that. Wow. The window has already closed for the Tampa Bay Lightning...

Maxim Lapierre Keeps Game Alive For Blues With Leg Save In OT (Video)

It’s hard enough to score in overtime of a Stanley Cup playoff game, especially when St. Louis Blues goaltender Ryan Miller is in net. When two players are between the pipes, it’s virtually impossible. The Blues proved that point in the first overtime of Thursday night’s thriller against Chicago Blackhawks in the opening game of their Western Conference quarterfinal series...

Blues find their swagger in Game 1 victory over the Blackhawks

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues needed this. Oh, without a doubt, they needed this. The Blues' late-season collapse unfolded over a few weeks in reality, but it seemed like it took longer. It was like the s-l-o-w m-o-t-i-o-n demise of one of the best seasons in franchise history, falling into pieces gradually because of fatigue or injuries or some cruel voodoo black magic from a witch doctor...

Maxim Lapierre Thinks He’s Ryan Miller, Makes Game-Saving Block in OT

During the first overtime of Thursday night’s Game 1 of the Blackhawks vs. Blues series, Maxim Lapierre saved the game for St. Louis when Ryan Miller was down and out. Lapierre, who got pushed into the crease by Brandon Saad, happened to be in position when Kris Versteeg fired a shot on the Notes’ empty net. Acting like Ryan Miller, he made the save like a warrior. This is playoff...

Blues-Blackhawks: Meet me in St. LouBARF

The Chicago Blackhawks start their Stanley Cup Championship defense against America’s Sweethearts: the St. Louis Blues.  The drive down I-55 is enough to hate this match-up, but the (lack of) respect shown by the Blues for opponents is unmatched in the NHL, and Chicago is aware of that. Patrick Kane was injured in a 4-0 win over the Bloos (that’s spelled correctly) in March...

Playing just well enough to get by won't cut it for Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Is it time to be worried yet? The fans that stayed away from the Blues' game against the visiting Sabres on Thursday night probably got off lucky. Maybe it was the threat of severe storms rolling through the bi-state area or maybe a few thousand locals just really wanted to stay home and watch the American Idol results show.
