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...

Steve 'Iceman' Ott's Blues duties take backseat for Maverick's birth

ST. LOUIS -- For professional hockey players, there's only one reason to happily miss the chance to play in a game. On any other day, Steve Ott would have joined the rest of the Blues for their morning skate and a tough game Saturday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins. But the organization and the veteran forward both agreed that wouldn't be feasible after he pulled an all-nighter...

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...

Hockey Fights of the Week: 2/2 – 2/8

Before diving into another edition of Hockey Fights of the Week, we have a bone to pick with the NHL. As things currently stand, fighting is legal in the NHL. You may not realize fighting is still legal in the NHL because the game’s officials keep stepping in and breaking up fights. The recent “fight” with Steve Ott and Dan Carcillo is a perfect example. The officials step...

Blues believe Goc will be a better fit with Ott, Reaves on fourth line

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' new fourth-line center could help shore up some minor weaknesses heading into the second half. Few would have faulted general manager Doug Armstrong for sticking with a roster that has produced 37 goals and earned 15 of 16 possible points in its last eight games. But the best leaders understand there's always room for improvement, and a Tuesday night trade...

Less is more: Minimizing penalties goes a long way for Blues

ST. LOUIS -- When the Blues' penalty kill issues began costing them valuable points, they adopted an added emphasis on a strategy that never fails. Just stay out of the box. It's a foolproof method St. Louis didn't need nearly as much a year ago, when it ranked second in the league by killing 85.7 percent of 293 opponent power plays, more than all but four other teams. But when...

Blues have won with defense, then with offense, but rarely both at once

ST. LOUIS -- It's easy to forget this Blues team once struggled to score and survived by limiting goals from opposing offenses. Since Thanksgiving, they've had the league's most productive offense by a wide margin, posting a 14-7-2 record while averaging 3.65 goals per game. Defense has been their weakness, and some occasionally shaky goaltending has contributed to 2.78 goals allowed...

Ryan Miller, Steve Ott Traded to the Blues

With the trade deadline coming up, there were indications that some big moves were coming up. Ryan Miller had been in the news for months, and a trade finally came to fruition as the St. Louis Blues traded Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier a first-round pick in 2015 and a third-round pick in 2016 to the Buffalo Sabres for Ryan Miller and Steve Ott, their captain...

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...

Ex-Star Ott surprised, touched by video tribute

DALLAS - Many fans and opposing players for that matter around the National Hockey League might not think much of Steve Ott, but during his long run with the Dallas Stars, No. 29 or "Otter" as he was known was a huge fan favorite. The reasons for his immense appeal are not hard to pin down. For one, Ott was a homegrown guy, someone the Stars drafted and developed. Two, he was someone...

Ken Hitchcock’s odd view on Sobotka and Ott

Vladimir Sobotka abandoning the NHL in favor of the KHL was a difficult pill to swallow. For the Blues, they lost a solid hockey player who unfortunately overvalued the skills he brought to the ice. The team followed up Sobotka’s decision by giving Steve Ott a two-year contract. Approximately 95% of fans groaned, aware that Ott is far from an adequate replacement for Sobotka. Coach...

Blues give Steve Ott a two-year, $5.2 million contract

The St. Louis Blues have signed Steve Ott to a two-year, $5.2 million contract. The news preceded the upsetting news about Vladimir Sobotka leaving for the KHL, but it’s clear the Ott signing was a direct response to the sudden absence of Sobotka. Ott may be a bit overpriced, but his contract is pretty reasonable considering what other players are going for on the market. The Ott...
