Predators’ slump gives the Blues a chance in the Central

It looked like the Nashville Predators were well out of reach from the St. Louis Blues in the Central. Even as the Blues rattled off win after win, the Predators seemed to be able to match every point earned by the Blues.

Blues add depth, deal for Jokinen, Michalek, Bortuzzo

Blues go with small fixes over major additions at trade deadline

ST. LOUIS -- A busy trade deadline day resulted in minor fixes rather than major additions for the St. Louis Blues. It's a departure from the past two years for general manager Dave Armstrong, who added No. 1 goaltender Ryan Miller last March and top line defenseman Jay Bouwmeester the year before. But Monday's deals reflect Armstrong's overall satisfaction with his team, particularly...

Jake Allen developing slower than expected

Heading into the 2014-15 season, it was clear that Brian Elliott was the starting goaltender of the St. Louis Blues. At least, that’s what the Blues were preaching. Fans were content to debate which goaltender should be the top option in St. Louis. As the season started, the belief was that Elliott and Jake Allen would share a 60-40 split and that Allen may very well succeed Elliott...

Offensive awakening not enough for Blues to win at Vancouver

A long-awaited offensive explosion couldn't help the Blues grab an elusive road win against one of the Western Conference's top teams.

As a result, the Blues fell to 0-7-1 away from home against the West's top five...

Stastny and dynamic third line lead Blues to 2-1 win at Edmonton

The Blues offense may be slowly heating up, one game and one piece at a time. Paul Stastny and his linemates looked to be on a different level than the rest of their teammates Saturday night, carrying St. Louis to a key 2-1 win at Edmonton. Ben Scrivens' quick glove kept Stastny from scoring the game-winner midway through the third period, but St. Louis' center found the net on a...
