The Blues head into the All-Star break with a snazzy 29-13-7, good for 65 points, the third-highest point total in the league (although, thanks to the fact that the top team in each division makes the playoffs, […]

The Blues at Midpoint

Posted: January 8, 2011 at 8:02 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Blues

Okay, technically the Blues have played 39 games so far, so it’s not midpoint. Leave me alone; I’m temporarily brain-damaged [more on that later]. But it’s close enough. Thus far, the Blues sit in ninth place with a 20-13-6 record and 46 points, but they also have played four fewer games than the eighth-place team. […]
