    This Day In Sports History (March 19) — Brett Hull

    It was on this day in 1991 that Brett Hull became only the second player in NHL history to score 80 goals in a season.  Hull finished the year with 86 goals – the third most all-time, behind only Wayne Gretzky’s 92 in 1981-82 and Gretzky’s 87 in 1983-84.  Brett also became only the fifth […]

    Awkward!: T.J. Oshie Pratfalls After Check From Kris Letang (Video)

    T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues appeared to be paying homage to Mack Sennett during Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. You see, most players just kind of bounce off the boards when they get hit, but not Oshie.  Instead, after T.J. Oshie got hit by the Penguins’ Kris Letang, he appeared to get twisted […]

    The St. Louis Blues entered Game One of their first round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings having lost each of the last eight meetings between these two teams.  That streak of futility dates back to last year’s second round playoff series, where the Blues were swept in four straight by the eventual Stanley […]

    Fights And Cheap Shots Mar This Weekend’s NHL Playoff Action (Videos)

    For the past two years I have chosen to discontinue the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” segment during the NHL playoffs because as many of us already know, fights rarely, if ever, take place during the post-season.  However, that has been far from the case during the 2012 NHL playoffs.  In fact, all of […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 3/27/12 — Brian Elliott

    Goaltending has been the story for the St. Louis Blues throughout most of the 2011-12 NHL season, and it was the story for them once again during last night’s game against the Nashville Predators. Heading into Tuesday night’s action, both Brian Elliott and Jaroslav Halak were ranked in the top five in the league in […]

    Check Out Tim Brent’s Awkward Premature Celebration (Video)

    There are actually two great parts about this clip. The first is Tim Brent’s celebration following what he believed to be a goal during last night’s game against the St. Louis Blues.  After hitting the post on a breakaway, the Hurricanes’ center was eager to celebrate what he thought was a goal, but this wasn’t […]

    Blue Jackets Fan Throws Chocolate Covered Strawberry On The Ice (Video)

    During last night’s game between the St. Louis Blues and the Columbus Blue Jackets, a chocolate covered strawberry landed on the ice, causing a stoppage in play.  We aren’t exactly sure how it got there, but we think we have an idea. For those of you who already didn’t know, we’ll start by reminding you […]

    After winning the second World Series title of his career, perhaps St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter should consider taking a shot at wining a Stanley Cup next.  He took the first step towards doing just that yesterday, as Carpenter stepped on the ice and took part in a practice with the St. Louis Blues.
