Jets Vs. Blues Recap: That's All We Got? One GD Goal?

Yep. Blues Lineup: The forward lines would look like this for the matchup against the Jets. Patrik Berglund would be with Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarsenko. Scottie Upshall would be with Alexander Steen and David Backes. Robby Fabbri would be with Jori Lehtera and Troy Brouwer. Ryan Reaves would rejoin the lineup tonight as he would be with Magnus Paajarvi and Kyle Brozdiak. Of course the big change for the Blues would be on defense as of course Alex Pietrangelo is out with a knee issue. That being said Kevin Shattenkirk would take his place with Jay Bouwmeester (Shatty also apparently...

Wild Vs. Blues Recap: Powerplay runs Wild

Three! Three powerplay goals, ah, ah, ah. Blues Lineup: Your forward lines for tonight's tilt with the Wild would look like this: Upshall, Steen, Backes...Berglund, Stastny, Tarasenko...Fabbri, Lehtera, Brouwer, and finally Paajarvi, Brozdiak, and Jaskin. Your D-pairings: Bouwmeester, Pietrangelo...Edmundson, Shattenkirk and Gunnarsson, Parayko. Starting goaltender would be Brian Elliott. For some wild (see what I did there?) reason both Thomas Vanek and Jason Zucker were both healthy scratches for tonight's game. First Period: Alexander Steen would open the scoring in the first for the...

Sharks Vs.Blues Recap: Offense Needed A Bigger Boat

Are you back yet Jaden? Blues Lineup: The Blues would roll out a similar lineup to the one that downed the Preds the other night in Nashville. Steen would center Backes and Berglund, Stastny would center Tarasenko and Paajarvi. Lehtera would be with Brouwer and Fabbri. Finally, Brozdiak would be with Upshall and Jaskin. Your D-pairs would see Bouwmeester, Pietrangelo...Edmundson, Shattenkirk, and Parayko would be with Gunnarson. Your starting goaltender would be Elliott. First Period: This game was a polar opposite of what happened in Nashville the other night. The pace was much better for...

Could Kevin Shattenkirk Save The Rangers' Crisis on Defense?

St. Louis Blues' defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk could provide the Rangers a way out of what has developed into a problematic Keith Yandle situation with few answers. One can debate whether trading John Moore, a first-round pick, second-round pick, and most importantly, Anthony Duclair, to acquire Keith Yandle in March of 2015 was the right move for the Rangers. Regardless, what everyone agreed upon at the time is that it was a bold move that should solidify the Rangers' spot as a contender for not only 2015, but 2016 as well. Things haven't played out quite according to plan. The Rangers were...

Blues Vs. Blackhawks Recap: Early Vacation

20 minutes of awesome, then 500 feet of crap...then the last two periods. Blues Lineup: The Blues lineup would see a change tonight as Ryan Reaves would sit this one out. Your forward lines would be the same otherwise with Steen, Stastny, Brouwer...Fabbri, Lehtera, Tarasenko...Berglund, Backes, Rattie (T.J. Rattie if you were watching on the NHL network apparently.) Again the only change tonight would be Upshall in for Reaves with Brozdiak and Jaskin. Your Defensive pairings for the Blues would be Pietrangelo,Shattenkirk...Gunnarson, Shattenkirk, and Edmundson with Parayko. Brian Elliott...

Blues Vs. Avalanche Recap: This Is Somehow Stan's Fault.

Clock stops working...Stan wants to move team to Vegas or L.A. or you get the idea. Blues Lineup: Your forward lines tonight would look similar to what they rolled out in Detroit. Steen, Stastny, Brouwer... Fabbri, Lehtera, Tarasenko...Berglund, Backes Rattie, and Jaskin, Brozdiak, Reaves. Your D-pairings (Yes pairings, the Blues did dress six d-men tonight) Pietrangelo, Bouwmeester...Shattenkirk, Gunnarson, and Edmundson, Parayko. Your starter in goal tonight would be Brian Elliott. First period: Colorado would try and jump on the Blues early tonight, but Elliott would have nothing of it....

Blues Vs. Red Wings Recap: Sorry Detroit, Net's Closed...

Moose out front should have told you. Blues Lineup: The forward lines would look like this in Detroit tonight: Steen, Stastny, Brouwer...Fabbri, Lehtera, Tarasenko...Berglund, Backes, Rattie, and Jaskin, Brozdiak, Upshall/Reaves. (Though Berglund, Backes, and Tarasenko would start) The D-pairings wouldn't even really be pairings as the Blues would only dress five defensemen tonight. Gunnarson was not taken off IR in time for the game. (Yeah, that actually happened, but Army did take responsibility for that) The Blues would start out with Shattenkirk, Bouwmeester and Pietrangelo, Edmundson....

Penguins Vs. Blues Recap: A Moose And...Walnuts?

Blues pay tribute to Phil Kessel by scoring enough for a bunch of hamburgers. The Pittsburgh Penguins came into town tonight to tangle with your Blues at Scottrade. In goal for the Blues would be Brian Elliott. The forward lines for tonight's match-up were: Steen, Stastny, Brouwer...Fabbri, Lehtera, Tarasenko...Berglund, Backes, Rattie, and finally Upshall, Brozdiak and Reaves. Returning to the D-lines tonight would be Bouwmeester after missing four games. He would be paired with Pietragelo once again. Shattenkirk and Parayko and Edmundson and Benoit would start after being called up from...

Poaching in the Central Division - Who Should the Dallas Stars Target?

Jonathan Drouin and Kevin Shattenkirk are apparently on the market. That means anything goes! With the team on-break, I took a look at the Central Division and identified interesting targets from each team should GM Jim Nill get the notion to start dealing. The league has gone completely Shatten-krazy, and our beloved Dallas Stars haven't played since Saturday. I'm jumpy. My first thought was to revisit a stack ranking of the Stars' all-time team, but then I got stuck on the proper ordering of Fabian Brunnstrom and Eric Nystrom. So instead I decided to cast my covetous glance across the...

Canes Vs. Blues Recap: May The Force Rock You Like A Hurricane

Something, Something, Something...Dark Side. Your Blues would take on the Carolina Hurricanes at Scottrade tonight. Brian Elliott would get the start in net tonight. Paul Stastny would return to the lineup after taking a puck to the head. (ouch!)  Your forward lines for the Blues were: Fabbri, Lehtera, Tarasenko...Steen, Stastny, Brouwer...Upshall, Backes, Berglund, and Jaskin, Brodziak, Reaves. Your defensive parings were: Shattenkirk, Pietrangelo...Butler, Parayko...and Edmundson, Bortuzzo. Of note before puck drop it was Ells' 300th NHL game. Also, something else pretty cool...

Would Kevin Shattenkirk be a good fit on the Bruins?

He fits into the Bruins lineup like peanut butter with jelly By now, I'm sure that you've heard why 29 teams NEED Kevin Shattenkirk, or at least why'd he'd fit in (enter respective city here) the best. The Bruins need a dynamic, puck moving, top two defenseman. and Kevin Shattenkirk is the perfect option. The Bruins have a lackluster group of defense. Shocker, I know. The blueline is in need of a fix, which lacks a true compliment to Zdeno Chara. There is tremendous depth, with about eight different guys who can play any given night at a relatively high level. However, the Bruins yearn for...

Matching Minors: Should The Dallas Stars Pursue A Trade Involving Kevin Shattenkirk?

The elite Blues defender is apparently on the trade market. The Stars are a middle-tier defensive team. Is there a fit here? Unless you've been living under a hockey rock lately (no, not that kind), you've probably heard the rumors that St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk might be available for trade. Shattenkirk is 26 years old and one of the best young blueliners in the NHL. The Dallas Stars are 15th in the NHL in terms of goals against per game and 13th in terms of shots against, so there's definitely room there for improvement on the defensive side of things. So, should the...

Devils Vs. Blues Recap: Devil May Cry 5

Please instruct us on how to Bergie. The St. Louis Blues were at home tonight against the New Jersey Devils at Scottrade Center. Brian Elliott would get the start as of course Jake Allen is sidelined. With all of the injuries suffered as of late the Blues lines would look like this: Fabbri, Lehtera, Tarasenko...Berglund, Backes, Rattie...Upshall, Steen, Brouwer...and your fourth line of Jaskin, Brozdiak and Reaves. Your defensive pairings would also see some changes tonight as Shattenkirk would see time with Pietrangelo. Butler would be paired with Parayko, and finally Edmundson would play...

Blues Lines Against Devils: Stastny Out

Tonight's lines will be some of the more unique that fans have seen so far this season. Paul Stastny's injury is a lot more complicated than a simple cut. It's nerve damage that's causing headaches with increased heart rate. So, tonight's lines are an amalgamation of conglomerations. I'm sure than Ken Hitchcock had a blast putting them together. From the Post-Dispatch: Forwards Scottie Upshall-Alexander Steen-Troy Brouwer Robby Fabbri-Jori Lehtera-Vladimir Tarasenko Patrik Berglund-David Backes-Ty Rattie Dmitrij Jaskin-Kyle Brodziak-Ryan Reaves Defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk-Alex...

Silver Nuggets: What Would it Take to Get Kevin Shattenkirk?

Rumour has it that Kevin Shattenkirk is on the trading block - what would it take to get him in a Senators uniform? The Ottawa Senators have had defensive problems for what feels like half a decade (other than the miracle run last year), and so it piqued my interest to hear that the Blues' defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk is rumoured to be available. It seems a little strange to hear that the best d-man on a Cup contender would be made available, but with Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Pietrangelo signed to rich long-term contracts and Shattenkirk becoming a UFA in a year and a half, the Blues may be...
