St. Louis Blues Rumors & News
San Francisco Chronicle 4 hours ago
The onus is on St. Louis to deny San Jose a win in Game 6 at SAP Center — a victory that would sent the Sharks to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time. If the teetering Blues even the best-of-seven series at three wins apiece, the Western Conference final will be decided with Game 7 in St. Louis on Friday. San Jose can view St. Louis as being in a predicament similar to Nashville’s when the Sharks took advantage of a team coming off a Game 7 win on the road against higher-seed Anaheim, and the Preds were visibly worn down as a result. San Jose has rallied from a 2-1 loss in the...

Captain America scores and scores and scores some more. We almost certainly over-estimate the importance of leadership in the NHL.

Is he hurt? Is he longing to be with his newborn? Has he just given up? Does he not care about the team and its fans? Stop it. Please stop it with the crazy talk about Vladimir Tarasenko. The reason why Tarasenko has been a non-factor in the Western Conference Final is San Jose has targeted him and is smothering him with two of the best shot suppression defensemen in the league. Shooting the puck scores goals. Shooting the puck a lot scores a lot of goals. To be a top goal scorer in the NHL you have to take a lot of shots.

Does goalie change mean Blues are panicking vs. Is St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock panicking? Elliott has started in the net in every one of the Blues 17 postseason games and got the Blues into the Western Conference Finals. The move could have a major impact on Elliott’s confidence, if Hitchcock feels the need to go back to the veteran. If we're going to win this series, get back in this series, we can't continue to allow three and four goals and expect to win games, not the way San Jose is playing right now.
