Home-ice advantage overrated in Wild-Blues series

ST. LOUIS (AP) NHL teams play all season for home-ice advantage. Only to give it away. It hasn't meant much at all in the Wild-Blues first-round Western Conference series.

The Rangers won twice...

It takes a team effort to lose three games in a playoff series and a team effort to right the ship and prevent elimination. With that being said, the Blues need to get more out of David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Paul Stastny if they hope to prolong their stay in the 2014-15 playoffs. This trio combined for 159 points over the course of the regular season, but they have just a combined...

The Blues’ infatuation over Steve Ott needs to end

The St. Louis Blues are making a grave mistake with how much they are using Steve Ott. Specifically, they need a reality check and need to realize what Ott actually brings to the table. In the team’s Game 5 loss at home, Ott saw over 15 minutes while other more talented forwards sat on the bench. What is Ken Hitchcock doing? Now, before this turns into a “We hate Steve Ott...

The Stanley Cup has eluded the St. Louis Blues for their entire 47-year history. Naturally, Barret Jackman — who has spent his whole 12-year NHL career with St. Louis, has never enjoyed the opportunity to hoist the highly coveted 34.5 pound piece of silver either. This year is thought to be different for Jackman and the Blues, though.
