Already without Vladimir Tarasenko for an unspecified amount of time, the Blues played without captain David Backes (day-to-day, lower-body injury) and then lost T.J. Oshie to a cheap...

Blues’ struggles are disheartening, but not surprising

The St. Louis Blues had a pretty tough weekend. They first dropped an ugly game against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday before closing out the weekend with another defeat against the Chicago Blackhawks.

No Oshie, no Tarasenko, no problem as Backes helps lift Blues past Jets

The St. Louis Blues captain corralled a loose puck in front of the Winnipeg Jets' net and poked it in for a power-play goal with 6:51 remaining. He promptly skated over to the glass and banged both arms off of it in a rare expression of relief. "That was a monkey-off-the-back type of celebration there," Backes...
