MAXIM LAPIERRE NEWS

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...

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...

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. Whatever the case, they can consider themselves...

Tuesday night we saw an awful trend continue as the Devils once again gave no goal support to Cory Schneider in a 3-0 loss.

Sharks start, finish strong in another win over Blues

Each of the three Sharks-Blues games this season has had a different personality. The common denominator is that San Jose captured all of them in regulation, including an important 4-2 win at Scottrade Center on Tuesday night. On Oct. 15 here, the Sharks used a dirty hit by Maxim Lapierre on Dan Boyle to drive them to a 6-2 win. Brent Burns’ hat trick paced a 6-3 victory on Nov...
