No blues for Canucks goalie Ryan Miller about his time in St. Louis

Yes, Ryan Miller wants to play. He wants to play every game, but the truth is he wants to play some more than others. Like Thursday night’s game here against the St. Louis Blues.

Vladimir Tarasenko heeding advice, shooting more often

Heading into 2014-15, Vladimir Tarasenko was instructed to fire the puck more. This advice was obvious coming off of a 2013-14 which saw Tarasenko score 21 goals during the regular season and another four during the playoffs. Has Tarasenko followed through? As with any article at this stage of the season, it’s early. With that in mind, Tarasenko is heeding that advice and is firing...

Coyotes fail major test in loss to Blues

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- St. Louis has been a terrible matchup for the Coyotes for the past three seasons. The Blues had won eight of the last 10 games against Arizona entering Saturday's game at Gila River Arena. But this 6-1 loss was far more disturbing than any of those prior losses, or Arizona's season-opening, 6-2 loss to Winnipeg. This felt like Coyotes' fans worst fears...

Usually the story plays out with the Blues then giving up a goal and falling late in the game. On Thursday night against the LA Kings, the story ended with a loss in the shootout, but the overall pattern remained the same...

Hitchcock on Blues’ early schedule: “It feels like we weren’t even in the league”

The folks/computers in charge of creating the NHL schedule have done it again. Last season the Blues always seemed to have a ton of games in hand while the rest of the league played a busy schedule. It’s more of the same in 2014-15 as the Blues skate in just their third game of the year while others (like Boston) participate in their sixth. As you might imagine, the light schedule...
