St. Louis Blues News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
12/5/13: The Blues have historically been rivals with the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings. With the Red Wings move to the Eastern Conference, the Blues may have found a new rival with the Colorado Avalanche. St. Louis pounded the Avs 7-3 at home three weeks ago, and followed that up with a dominating 4-1 win in Denver last week. The win gave the Blues their 18th win of the season and a four point cushion in the standings. Of course, it is only a rivalry if both teams win some games against the other, so maybe it is not a rivalry yet.
11/28/13: The Blues continue their winning ways, whether it be at home or on the road. The team made a statement to the entire league by taking down the Bruins 3-2 in a shootout. St. Louis continues to get quality play out of the third and fourth line, which is the difference between good and great teams. Jaroslav Halak stopped 27 shots in regulation and only allowed one shootout goal before Derek Roy redeemed himself for missing on a breakaway in the final minute of OT, before sliding one past Bruins goalie Tuuka Rask to win the game. St. Louis is now in second in the Central, just a point behind Chicago but with two games in hand.
11/21/13: The Colorado Avalanche may be at the top of the Central Division standings, but don' tell that to the St. Louis Blues. The Blues walloped the Avs at home 7-3 to knock Colorado out of the top spot. The Blues top line of Alex Steen, T.J. Oshie, and David Backes combined for nine points in the beatdown. Former Av Chris Stewart earned the ire of Colorado by fighting and beating up Corey Sarich as the game became a boxing match in the third period. The Blues are still on pace for a high playoff spot, but it will be interesting the next time these two teams meet.
11/14/13: The St. Louis Blues are off to one of their best starts in franchise history, but all it has earned them so far is a fifth place standing in the ultra-competitive Western Conference. The Blues have only lost two games in regulation and stand at 11-2-2. Yet they still trail the Chicago Blackhawks and the Central division leading Colorado Avalanche in points. That being said, the Blues have played less games than anyone in the league. They should also get deeper now that they have activated veteran forward Brendan Morrow off of the IR and he should be playing this week.
11/7/13: After getting a week off, the Blues have been busy lately. The team took their annual trip through the Southeast this past week and played the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning on consecutive nights. The Blues easily took the Friday night game against the Panthers, winning 4-0. But the road back to backs were a little too taxing, as the Blues allowed the Lightning to break a 2-2 tie in the third period, losing 4-2. St. Louis is 8-2-2, but that is only good for third place in the Central Division. That being said, the Blues have played a few games less than their division rivals and will likely gain a few points as the year progresses.
10/31/13: The Blues somehow found themselves with an entire week off during the regular season, something that is basically unheard of in the NHL. Several players actually went to South Carolina for a mini vacation. They faced the Canucks in their return and lost 3-2 in overtime, but bounced back the following night with a 6-1 pounding of the Nashville Predators. The Blues continue to rack up points and should be considered a contender throughout the entire season as the core group of players now has experience, talent, and chemistry to make a run at the Stanley Cup this season.
10/24/13: The Blues continue to show the Chicago Blackhawks that they are not to be pushed around this year. St. Louis beat the Hawks at home two weeks ago when Alex Steen broke a 2-2 deadlock with the game winning goal with 21 seconds remaining. Chicago wanted payback eight days later in Chicago. The Hawks led 1-0 and 2-1, but were tied at 2 apiece going into the third period, which was scoreless. T.J. Oshie scored on his shootout attempt and goalie Jaro Halak stopped all three attempts on him to give the Blues a 3-2 win and send 21,000 Blackhawks fans home very upset.
10/17/13: The St. Louis Blues renewed their rivalry with the Chicago Blackhawks this past week, and the rivalry is as strong as ever. Both teams come into the season considered to be Stanley Cup contenders and the Blues did not disappoint their fans. On within minutes of the St. Louis Cardinals scoring insurance runs to beat the Pirates and advance to the NLCS, Alex Steen of the Blues fired a slapshot through the legs of Hawks' goalie Corey Crawford for the game winning goal with only 21 seconds left. The win kept the Blues undefeated for the young season and capped off a great night in St. Louis sports.
10/10/13: For the first time in about a decade the Blues are seriously considered as contenders for the Stanley Cup this season. They showed why that is on their opening night, a 4-2 win over Nashville. The win was nice, but the Blues chased the Predators' star goaltender, Pekka Rinne, early in the first period. St. Louis scored three goals on their first six shots, and added another later in the game. The knock on St. Louis is their offense, but with the maturation of T.J. Oshie, Vladimir Taresenko, and Jaden Schwartz, as well as the addition of Brendan Morrow, that may change this season.
10/3/13: Blues fans have been looking forward to this season for quite some time. The team invested heavily in young talent several years ago and has cultivated a strong core that includes T.J. Oshie, Vladimir Taresenko, and Jaden Schwartz. This is the year, many believe, that St. Louis takes the step to legitimate Stanley Cup contender. Jaro Halak will be the starting goalie, and the Blues have indicated they will not go with a time-share approach like in past years. Brian Elliot will be the backup and Jake Allen is ready in the minors. The Blues expectations are sky high this year, and it is likely that nothing short of a deep playoff run will be acceptable.
9/26/13: The Blues got the last remaining piece of the long-term puzzle solved last week when they signed young star defenseman Alex Pietrangelo to a long-term deal. Petro was a restricted free agent and all reports indicated that he wanted to stay in St. Louis and the Blues said they would match any offer sheet. It took a few days, but now everyone is happy. Petro finally found a solid D-mate when the Blues acquired Jay Boumeester last season, and they look to be a pair again. St. Louis feels they have the pieces to compete for the Stanley Cup this season and appear to be going all in.
9/19/13: The St. Louis Blues, like many other teams, have started their training camp. The Blues are looking to build on the success they have achieved over the past two years under head coach Ken Hitchcock. The Note has never won the Stanley Cup, though they made two appearances early in franchise history. Now, many believe, is the time to make the next step. The team brought back hall of famer Brett Hull in a front office position. Hull played 11 years in St. Louis, including the year he had 86 goals. The Blues play the Tampa Bay Lightning in a preseason game in Orlando on Wednesday.
9/12/13: No one in St. Louis is worried about the Blues being able to sign their star young defenseman, Alex Pietrangelo, to a long term deal. Petro is an unrestricted free agent and currently not under contract. Any team could sign him to an offer sheet and the Blues would have to match or cede him. Petro himself says that he will not hold out from training camp. The issue, as always, is money. The Blues are offering $6 million per year and he wants $7 million. Perhaps Petro misses some of training camp, but expect this deal to get finalized and for Petro to be with the Blues for many years.
9/4/13: St. Louis Blues fans are going to love their new fourth line center, Maxim Lapierre. Lapierre is tough guy with some talent. He will get into a lot of fights, take a lot of penalties, and generally wreak havoc on the other team. He will fit in well in St. Louis who still embraces guys like Tony Twist and Kelly Chase. While Lapierre can score a bit, it is his toughness and edge that will endear him to the locals. The Blues are banking on Vladimir Taresenko, David Backes, and T.J. Oshie to score, which will allow Lapierre to do what he does best - get under the opponents' skin.
8/29/13: This could be a big season for second year forward Vladimir Taresenko. Taresenko started his NHL career with a bang, scoring two goals in his first game and was named the NHL Rookie of the Month. However, a concussion in midseason derailed him. He was out for several weeks and was not the same player when he returned. He was more tentative and defenses had learned his moves. He is fully healthy now and the Blues will give him a bigger role in the offense. Combined with Jaden Schwartz, the Blues may just have a couple goal scorers on their team which has been completely supported by defense and goaltending the past two years.
8/22/13: Rare kind words for the Blues out of the Red Wings this past week. Detroit General Manager was asked if a team needs to be big to be successful in the Eastern Conference, as opposed to the Western Conference (as the Red Wings are moving to the East). He quickly pointed out the success that the Blues and Kings have had with teams with big bodies. The Blues are large, and they do not intend to get smaller, while the team could use a couple true scorers, the big guys are essential in the playoffs, and this could be the year the Blues finally break through.
8/15/13: The Blues are not likely to let their star young defenseman, Alex Pietrangelo, go anywhere anytime soon. Petro is a restricted free agent and has said that the Blues will match any competing offer. Rightfully so. Elite defenseman under the age of 25 that can play pentaly kill, power play, and can score do not come along every day. Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong hopes to have the contract finished up by the start of training camp, and keep Petro wearing the Blue Note for a long time - like former great Blues defensemen Rob Ramage, Chris Pronger, and Barclay Plager.
8/8/13: St. Louis Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong hit the public airwaves this past week and said that St. Louis is where good players want to go. It is true that the Gateway City has tremendous fans, a great knowledge of the game, and some of the best Italian restaurants this side of Sicily. The team is also on the verge of something special, and as proof, defenseman Jay Boumeester re-signed without a second thought of going elsewhere. With a little luck, this next season is when the Blues finally break through and win the Stanley Cup.
8/1/13: This is not going as smoothly as the Blues would have liked. St. Louis traded top six forward David Perron to the Edmonton Oilers a few weeks ago, but Perron keeps barking about the trade. He said he had a gut feeling that it would come at some point. After two strong seasons to begin his career, Perron faded the last couple of campaigns. He never quite lived up to his potential and was not fitting in well with head coach Ken Hitchcock's scheme. It is probably best that he gets a fresh start elsewhere, and Edmonton is a great place to go considering all of the top notch young talent they have.
7/25/13: The St. Louis Blues were able to lock in restricted free agent Chris Stewart for two more years this past week. The team traded away forward David Perron to Edmonton to create some cap space, and still needs to re-sign star defenseman Alex Pietrangelo in the near future. Stewart led the Blues in scoring last season - finally learning how to use his big frame and strong shot to his advantage. The team may now decide to get to work on a long-term deal for him in the hopes of keeping him as a core of the franchise for the next several years.
7/18/13: The Blues are going to have to do some juggling to get everyone they want under long-term deals, and even then, they may not be able to keep everyone they want. The emergence of goaltender Jake Allen makes Jaroslav Halak expendable. The Blues should feel comfortable going into the season with Allen and Brian Elliot, and could feasibly make a trade (possibly with Philadelphia) to pick up a scorer or prospects. GM Doug Armstrong is a good executive, so do not be surprised if he manages a deal to move Halak before training camp opens in a couple months.
7/11/13: The Blues signed Derek Roy to a $4 million deal, which will help stabilize a team that is showing cracks. His signing leaves the team about $9 million under the cap, but the team has to sign star defensemen Alex Pietrangelo and Kevin Shattenkirk to long term deals. GM Doug Armstrong may have to make a deal to get some more space, and that could include shipping off goalie Jaro Halak and leave the netminding to Brian Elliot and youngster Jake Allen in the future. The team still has a strong core, but always can use more scoring.
7/4/13: The Blues took home a small haul from the NHL Entry Draft over the weekend, making only four selections. The team did not have a first round pick, which they traded for defenseman Jay Boumeester at the trade deadline. The Blues will return most of their core next season, and even signed breakout defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk to a four year extension. St. Louis may try to move goalie Jaro Halak with the emergence of Jake Allen. The Philadelphia Flyers are said to be interested in making a deal that makes sense for both of the teams involved.
6/27/13: Back in January, it looked like the Blues had a blue chipper in Vladimir Taresenko. The was named rookie of the month and had five goals while destroying the competition. He tailed off from his hot start then had a concussion that kept him on the sidelines for few weeks. He was not the same player when he returned - far more tentative. As his production tailed off, so did his playing time. He was a healthy scratch for five of the Blues six playoff games. The Blues gave him a mandate for the offseason, get into better shape. He was left off of the Russian national team for the same reason. However, if he gets his conditioning to the NHL level, then there is no telling how high the ceiling is for this amazing talent.
6/20/13: The Blues really feel like they are close. They have made the playoffs for the past two season and have a strong young core to grow with. In the future, though, Jamie Langenbrunner will not be part of the team. The Blues did not renew his contract so the veteran must find work elsewhere. One of the tougher choices the Blues may have is in net. Brian Elliot played well as the starter when Jaro Halak was injured, and Jake Allen filled in nicely as well. Halak was upset that he did not play when he returned to health, so he may be out the door soon to make room for Allen.
6/13/13: Blues center Andy McDonald announced his retirement this past week. He cited concern for concussions as the primary motivation to end his career. McDonald suffered several concussions in his playing time, including one a couple years ago the kept him out for the majority of the season. While it is sad to see a player of his character and talent leave the team, it is far better for him to leave with the opportunity of a healthy post-career life than continue to risk a devastating injury. St. Louis will miss McDonald, and hopefully he will return in another capacity for the team.
6/6/13: The St. Louis Blues did not progress as much as they wanted this postseason, but there is no reason for alarm. They matched up in the first round with the defending Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings. Losing to that team is disappointing, but not problematic. Expect the Blues to put forth a similar lineup next year. The team still has faith in its cores, and will welcome Jaden Schwartz in with open arms. The Blues do need a true sniper - someone who can score. Schwartz has proven himself as a goal scorer, and if Taresenko recovers correctly, then they may have two new weapons that they lacked in the postseason.
5/30/13: The Blues and their fans are surely disappointed on how the season ended. The team got off to a great start, then struggled midway through the shortened season, but regained their form to finish 4th in the West. They got knocked out in the first round by the L.A. Kings - the same team that knocked them out the previous season en route to the Stanley Cup Championship. But do not expect major moves out of the Blues this offseason. They still have a strong young core of skaters and solid goaltending. The Blues may look for a good left defenseman, but their real need is a pure scorer.
5/23/13: The rest of the NHL is on notice. Granted, the 2013 playoffs are only in the second round and there is another month of hockey left in this season, but once again, everyone is on notice. The Blues have suffered for the last two years because they could not consistently score. They have a top defense and great goaltending, but seem to be allergic to scoring. Cue Ty Rattie. Rattie is a scoring machine and rewrote the record books in the minors. He scored 20 times in 21 games this postseason with Portland, and has 50 goals in 75 games. Once Tarasenko gets the concussion clouds of his head and is paired with Rattie and Jaden Schwartz, the Blues will set scoring records.
5/16/13: The St. Louis Blues have been playing in the NHL for 45 years and have zero Stanley Cups - they are almost half way to Cub-like futility. The Blues had a good team this year - good enough to win everything. But they drew the Kings in the first round and that is a team that matches up too well. L.A. knocked the Blues out in six games, particularly heartbreaking since St. Louis won the first two matches. On an aside, Jaro Halak may not be back with the team. He and head coach Ken Hitchcock are at odds over his injuries and playing time. Brian Elliot starred in net the last month and rookie Jake Allen showed he could handle the game.
2013 Stanley Cup Playoff Team - St. Louis Blues
After a slow start to their 2013 NHL campaign, one that saw their trademark abundance of goaltending produce subpar results, the St. Louis Blues rebounded in the second half of the season and secured the No. 4 seed in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Western Conference. Last season, that goaltending and tight, systematic defense earned them a second seed, but in the playoffs they ran into the upstart Los Angeles Kings and fell in the second round. This season's team is free of the lofty expectations that weighed on them last year, but what they still have is solid blue-line character and an 11-3 record heading into the 2013 NHL Playoffs. They never had much of a shot at their division title, as they play in the same group as the Chicago Blackhawks (and their historic streak this season).
At the trade deadline, the Blues traded for defenseman Jay Bouwmeester from Calgary, and his performance has anchored their trademark stingy performance; for an average NHL Offense like St. Louis has, they rely on goal prevention in between and in front of the pipes to keep them in games and a series like this one. The Blues are hoping to improve the track record against the Kings that they established this season, where they have failed to avenge their playoff loss in three meetings. While the Los Angeles Kings have talent up front and on their own blue line to challenge St. Louis, look for goaltender Brian Elliot of the Blues to be the most important factor in this series. If he can match the success of the Kings' Jonathon Quick - who was the NHL playoff MVP last season - the St. Louis Blues have a chance of advancing in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup Playoff Opponent
The St. Louis Blues were 0-3 against the Los Angeles Kings during the 2013 NHL regular season, including two losses at the Scottrade Center. With home ice advantage in the first round of the 2013 NHL Playoffs, the Blues are hoping to improve their performance and earn a different result than last season.
