On the plus side, concussion gave Oshie a chance to reboot

ST. LOUIS -- There's never a good time to have a concussion, one of the scariest and most dangerous injuries in sports. And it certainly didn't look good when Blues forward T.J. Oshie collided with the goal post in a 4-3 overtime win at Dallas, especially considering he was already off to a slow start with just one point in his first eight games. Alas, some good might have come from...

Strong group of defenseman deserves credit for Blues' recent successes, too

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' electric forwards might be dominating the headlines and highlight shows, but an increasingly strong group of defenseman deserves just as much credit for the team's recent hot streak.

Patrik Berglund is a frustrating topic with St. Louis Blues fans.
