Arizona Coyotes struggle to score in fourth straight loss against the St. Louis Blues

Arizona Coyotes struggle to score in fourth straight loss against the St. Louis Blues

The Coyotes were looking to bounce back against the Blues, but they just cannot score right now. Unfortunately, the Coyotes just couldn’t get the scoring together again. They did start to fight back against the Blues at the end, but they just couldn’t get anything going. Clayton Keller looked amazing in his home debut, notching an assist in the game. The Coyotes are just 5 games away from the end of the season, hopefully, they can end on a strong note. Scoring Summary First Period 1-0 St. Louis - Patrik Berglund scored when DeAngelo lost his man and put it right under the crossbar...

Blues at Coyotes gameday thread: Clinch Time

With a win tonight the Blues will clinch their sixth consecutive trip to the playoffs. With a win over the Coyotes tonight, and a Kings loss to the Flames, the Blues will eliminate the Los Angeles Kings and will clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs. What spot that is remains to be seen. This game also will be difficult to see, because it starts at 9:30 Central. If you nod off in the middle of it, you’ll miss Carter Hutton and Jordan Schmaltz. You also might miss the Blues sweeping the Coyotes in the season series. Carl Gunnarsson’s taking the night off; the Blues probably won’t....

Blues travel back to Arizona, again, to take on the Coyotes at 9:30 CT on FSMW Stop me if you’ve heard this one, tonight the Blues take on the Arizona Coyotes.

Clayton Keller debuts in hometown as Arizona Coyotes are defeated by St. Louis Blues

Clayton Keller debuts in hometown as Arizona Coyotes are defeated by St. Louis Blues

Anthony DeAngelo scored to keep the rookie points tally growing but the Blues were too classy for the Coyotes overall. Arizona Coyotes have now lost to the St. Louis Blues 10 meetings in a row, with their last win coming on 11/12/13. The highly anticipated debut of Clayton Keller neither failed to deliver nor lived up to its hype, but rather Keller did his best to not look out of place. Unfortunately, Keller’s debut nor his ‘energizing’ presence could get the Arizona Coyotes’ out of their current slump as they managed to only score once for the 3rd game in a row while the St....

The St. Louis Blues played a terrific game against the Calgary Flames Saturday night but came up short, losing a tough, exciting back-and-forth affair, 3-2, with two and a half seconds left in overtime.

Coyotes at Blues morning open thread: Back on track

Coyotes at Blues morning open thread: Back on track

The Blues got a point on Saturday night. They should get two tonight. So, Brian Elliott stood victorious on Saturday night. Bully for him. Tonight, the Blues will be seeing a team that is significantly not as good as the Flames are this season. The Coyotes are still generally awful this year. Mike Smith, who turned in a pretty good performance in a 3-0 loss against the Blues on March 18th, shouldn’t bear the brunt of the blame for Arizona’s -60 goal differential. But there they are, at the bottom of the West again, and the Blues should benefit from playing them in this home-and-home...

NCAA Prospects Have A Short Weekend

NCAA Prospects Have A Short Weekend

The biggest week on the college hockey calendar didn't offer much luck for Blues prospects this year. After two years in a row of having a prospect in the Frozen Four, the St. Louis Blues will not have a player representing them in 2017. In 2015 Jake Walman and the Providence Friars won the National Title, while in 2016 Austin Poganksi and the North Dakota Fighting Hawks won a title of their own. The fate of the remaining teams will be known April 6th before the final two play two days later, the 8th on ESPN. Those still currently in the hunt are Harvard, Minnesota Duluth, Denver, and...

Flames at Blues gameday thread: Allen, Elliott face off

This is the first time the former tandem’ve ever faced each other as foes. Jake Allen and Brian Elliott had some good times together as the Blues’ 1A and 1B goaltending duo, didn’t they? Man, good times. Those good times came to an end at the 2016 draft, where Elliott was dealt to the Calgary Flames so he would have an opportunity to be a true starter. After a rough start, Elliott has turned his play around and is currently in the process of getting the Flames into their first playoff experience since 2015, where they lost in the second round. The Blues are making a very good argument...

Flames at Blues preview: Red hot Flames, Blues square off.

The Flames are 7-3-0 in their last ten games. The Calgary Flames have been flirting with a return to the playoffs for a bit, but as the standings sit right now, it looks like they’ll be back in sooner rather than later. They sit a point better than the Predators in the first wild card position, nine points better than the Los Angeles Kings. Barring a collapse down the stretch, Brian Elliott may be leading another team with solid playoff performances. Speaking of Elliott, Moose has shaken off the early season yips. He’s 4-1 in his last five games. Not to be outdone, Jake Allen is also...

Blues nominate Ryan Reaves for Masterton Trophy

The trophy is awarded to the player who “best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey.“ It’s that time of the hockey season: as the year winds down, fans and pundits start pondering who the NHL Award nominees will be. Obviously, finalist lists won’t be released until the start of the post-season, but everyone has their ideas of who should be on the shortlists. The fun thing about the Masterton Trophy is that teams start putting their individual nominees for consideration out there for fans to see by the end of March. Teams have already...

Future Moves for the St. Louis Blues

Future Moves for the St. Louis Blues

Let’s be honest, there is only one move to make. The Blues, while under Ken Hitchcock, looked like they were going to fumble down the standings and miss the post-season completely. Since Mike Yeo took over, this team has turned around in a big way. The goaltenders have really picked up their play, the team is playing as a more cohesive unit, and they continue to get production from previously unlikely sources. However, this team is far from perfect. Ivan Barbashev is played very well in his short stint in the NHL this season, scoring three goals and three assists in 20 games this year....

Canucks at Blues preview: No Stastny? No Lehtera? No problem?

The Blues are down two of their centers. Will it be an issue against the Canucks? Paul Stastny fell victim to a Vladimir Tarasenko shot Tuesday night. As unfortunate as losing him is for the Blues, head coach Mike Yeo has a backup plan: Alexander Steen. Steen will be centering Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz, who scored his first non-empty net goal since the Obama administration against the Avalanche. How does the rest of the line-up look?

Beyond Checkerdome Ep 154: Ladies And Gentlemen

The Blues stay strong on the road, and ladies’ hockey news Like we say, the next best thing to 4-and-Yeo is to go 3-1 the very next week. This time around, we cover the LA, Anaheim, San Jose and Phoenix games. And like most fans, we probably spend a disproportionate amount of time on the one that we lost. We talk about the development of the younger players, and how that can cause problems like what we’re seeing occasionally now. Also, there’s been a lot of talk about women’s hockey lately. The Frozen Four was held here in the #HeartlandOfHockey, and the NWHL just crowned a new...
