Blues credit Steve Ott’s fight for shifting momentum vs. Penguins

The Blues found themselves trailing by two during the second period in Pittsburgh. The Penguins tallied two goals in 17 seconds and the Blues looked ready to pack it in and coast through the remainder of the contest. Then something shifted the momentum and got the Blues back in the game. Was it an inspirational speech from Ken Hitchcock? A lucky bounce? No, it was a fight by Steve...

St. Louis Blues (45-21-7) at Pittsburgh Penguins (40-22-10) 7:00 PM – ROOT Sports CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA Guess what? Chicken butt.

Kevin Shattenkirk nearing a return

Kevin Shattenkirk is closing in on a return to the lineup and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Blues have dropped three in a row (though they did pick up a couple of points) and look unorganized and sloppy on defense. Offensively, the Blues haven’t been able to replace Shattenkirk’s production. Despite skating in just 49 games, Shattenkirk’s 40 points trails Alex...

St. Louis is looking to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat as it closes its longest trip of the season against Pittsburgh, which could have Evgeni Malkin back in the lineup. The Blues (45-21-7) lead the Central...

Travelin' Blues ready to put out Flames' home streak

The Calgary Flames' playoff push could take a major step forward on a five-game homestand, and they should be riding plenty of confidence in their own building. The problem is it begins Tuesday night against the St. Louis Blues, who have been even better on the road lately than the Flames have been at home. Calgary (38-26-5) is 8-3-1 at home dating to Jan. 27, and the 17 points that...
