Detroit came to town and stole one away from the Blues in the bonus round. More “in-depth analysis” ahead.
Welp, as you may have noticed, my streak ended after the 6-4 win on Saturday against the Flames. Starting a new streak tonight, and hopefully the Blues aren’t.
Losing in regulation wasn’t the change in play I was hoping for, but Connor McDavid and the Oilers had different plans.
This will be quick, unlike what last night’s game felt like. But hey, at least they got a point right?

First start of the year for netminder Carter Hutton went pretty well and it came in one of the fastest performances I’ve ever seen from the Blues. Continue reading “Blues Slapshot: This is the Carter”

Rule changes in sports suck.
There I said it.
I’ll also say I’m not proud of the title of this article but that’s neither here nor there.
If you are unfamiliar of Blues broadcaster Darren Pang, you should be ashamed of yourself because the man is a real treat, a delight and an underrated national treasure for crying out loud. He’s a former NHL netminder, who had 3 stints on the big stage with the Chicago Blackhawks (which we don’t hold that against you). In 81 career games, the Kildonan, MB, Canada native amassed a record of 27-35-7, with a .88 save percentage and 4.05 GAA. He also set a Blackhawks’ goalie record with 6 assists in the 1987-88 season. Pang is also considered the 2nd shortest goalie of all time in the NHL, standing at a ginormous 5’5. Continue reading “Best of Panger”
I’ll be the first to admit I’m a bit of a lax Blues fan. I’ll check the scores and make it to a game or so each season, but now that I’m out of my college house I don’t have roommates keeping me as informed. I’m certainly not as up on my Blues happenings as I am on the Cardinals or Rams. I blame it on not having the big Blues season during my youth like the Cardinals (McGwire) and Rams (Greatest Show on Turf) did. That’s why I didn’t turn the game on until the 2nd period last night.
But holy shit, was that one hell of a 2nd period. 4 goals, followed by 3 fights (all Blues wins) to turn a 1-1 game into a 5-1 beatdown. It’s hard to ignore a period that dominating against the 1st place team in the division. Check out the highlights at NHL.com. Let’s see the fights, in gif form!
