The St. Louis Blues at the 49/82 point of the Season

Posted: January 25, 2012 at 8:21 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Blues

Yeah…sorry about the headline. I guess I should have perhaps posted eight games ago. Damn my laziness. Anyways. 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, […]

Blues Trade Lars Eller and Ian Schultz for Canadians Goaltender Jaroslav Halak

Posted: June 18, 2010 at 12:15 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Blues

The first thing I thought when I heard the Blues had acquired rights to Canadians goaltender Jaroslav Halak was, “How angry are Canadians fans up in Montreal?” For those of you who don’t watch much hockey, Halak was the golden boy of the playoffs for Montreal. The 25 year old goaltender led the Canadians through […]
