The Curious Case of Patrik Berglund

I do not think there is a more intriguing player on the Blues than Patrik Berglund. While others are constantly underwhelmed by his game, I find myself focusing on him more in an attempt to get a read on exactly what type of player he is. To this day, I still am not sure.

Blues' Stastny, Butler inspire dreams of local youth hockey players

ST. LOUIS -- Young hockey players in St. Louis don't have to look far to see what the future can hold for the area's brightest stars. When the Blues signed forward Paul Stastny and Chris Butler this past offseason, they didn't just get one of the league's best centers and a reliable veteran defenseman. They brought home two St. Louis natives who are providing plenty of inspiration...

Schwartz's value to Blues goes beyond points and assists

ST. LOUIS -- Questions about Jaden Schwartz's return providing a boost are so familiar they've become something of a joke in the Blues locker room. Linemate Jori Lehtera smiles when he says "everything is just because Schwartzy came (back), probably" and it's hard to tell how much of it is a compliment and how much is just poking fun at the narrative. Everyone knows St. Louis has...

Blues goalie Brian Elliott added to the All-Star Game

ST. LOUIS -- Just when it appeared an injury would keep Brian Elliott from making the All-Star game, another one opened up a spot for the Blues' top goaltender Thursday afternoon. The 2012 All-Star clearly has been good enough when he's on the ice, posting a 13-5-2 record to go along with a .930 save percentage and league-best 1.86 goals-against average. But a sprained knee that...

Blues have weakened defensively, but only slightly

If you’ve been watching the St. Louis Blues regularly this season, you may be under the impression that the team’s defense has taken a big step back in 2014-15 compared to 2013-14. Is it just perception or have the Blues taken their eye off of defense during their offensive outbursts this season? The answer to the question above lies somewhere in the middle. The Blues have been...

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 rumble into All-Star break as hot as they've been all year

ST. LOUIS -- Give the Blues some time to reach full speed, and they've proven themselves quite capable of tightening the screws.

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...

Elliott shows why he's Blues' No. 1 in shutout of Leafs

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues offense proved more than capable of carrying the team while waiting for its top goaltender to find his form following a knee injury he suffered just before Thanksgiving. Brian Elliott will take all the help he can get. He finally got a chance to return the favor Saturday night. The 29-year-old paved the way for a 3-0 win over Toronto for his 19th career shutout...
