Blues have won with defense, then with offense, but rarely both at once

ST. LOUIS -- It's easy to forget this Blues team once struggled to score and survived by limiting goals from opposing offenses. Since Thanksgiving, they've had the league's most productive offense by a wide margin, posting a 14-7-2 record while averaging 3.65 goals per game. Defense has been their weakness, and some occasionally shaky goaltending has contributed to 2.78 goals allowed...

Elliott shows why he's Blues' No. 1 in shutout of Leafs

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues offense proved more than capable of carrying the team while waiting for its top goaltender to find his form following a knee injury he suffered just before Thanksgiving. Brian Elliott will take all the help he can get. He finally got a chance to return the favor Saturday night. The 29-year-old paved the way for a 3-0 win over Toronto for his 19th career shutout...

Report: Doug Armstrong may offer Martin Brodeur a front office job

Martin Brodeur is currently enjoying his one-week leave of absence and is debating his future in the NHL and with the St. Louis Blues. It seems like Brodeur has a couple of options: Remain as the third netminder with the Blues or mutually terminate his contract with the Blues and try to find work somewhere else. The second option has seemed like the most likely scenario considering...

Blues want Brodeur back, so now it's up to him

ST. LOUIS -- Don't put those new Martin Brodeur Blues jerseys into storage just yet. St. Louis granted the 42-year-old goalie a weeklong leave of absence Wednesday, the latest unexpected twist in a saga that began when he came out of semi-retirement to sign a one-year contract on Dec. 2.

Brodeur granted one-week leave of absence to ponder future with Blues

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues have given Martin Brodeur a one-week leave of absence, perhaps signaling the end of the 42-year-old goalie's time with the team. The Blues said Wednesday that Brodeur's future will be addressed after he returns. Brian Elliott has recovered from a knee injury, and 24-year-old Jake Allen has been strong in net.

Shattenkirk, Tarasenko most worthy to represent Blues in All-Star Game

ST. LOUIS -- Although others may be worthy, only two Blues stand a real chance to earn limited roster spots in the NHL's All-Star game when the remaining selections are announced Saturday. The case hardly even needs to be made for forward Vladimir Tarasenko, who ranks third in the league with 22 goals and earned No. 2 Star of the Month honors in November. His stunning goal against...

Blues are comfortable carrying three goaltenders for now

The St. Louis Blues found themselves in a difficult position when Brian Elliott returned from injury. The team had recently signed Martin Brodeur to a one-year contract due to the assumption that Elliott would be out for a decent chunk of time and that Jake Allen wouldn’t be able to hold down the fort on his own until Elliott returned. Initially, the Brodeur experiment seemed to...

WATCH: David Backes takes a puck to the face

This one is painful to watch. David Backes took a slapper from T.J. Oshie right in the face. He immediately left the game, but returned in the second period sporting a full cage. He then left for the remainder of the night after playing four shifts in the second.
