Blues Goalie Brian Elliott Takes Selfie During Breakaway Challenge

The NHL’s version of the Slam Dunk Contest is the Breakaway Challenge, where anything goes and props are encouraged. This year, Blues teammates Vladimir Tarasenko worked together and got pretty creative, but this selfie shot was easily the best. #NHLAllStar game Selfie!!!! — Brian Elliott (@KidElls1) January 25, 2015 [Fansided] The post Blues Goalie...

Mad skills: Blues goalie takes a selfie while teammate scores goal

From Ellen's record-breaking pic at last year's Oscars to the holiday rise of the "selfie stick," it's clear the self-taken photograph isn't going away anytime soon. The selfie again took centerstage during Saturday night's NHL Skills Competition in Columbus thanks to St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott. On his teammate Vladimir Tarasenko's first attempt in the Breakaway Challenge...

The Curious Case of Patrik Berglund

I do not think there is a more intriguing player on the Blues than Patrik Berglund. While others are constantly underwhelmed by his game, I find myself focusing on him more in an attempt to get a read on exactly what type of player he is. To this day, I still am not sure. Hailing […] The post The Curious Case of Patrik Berglund appeared first on Along the Boards.

Schwartz's value to Blues goes beyond points and assists

ST. LOUIS -- Questions about Jaden Schwartz's return providing a boost are so familiar they've become something of a joke in the Blues locker room. Linemate Jori Lehtera smiles when he says "everything is just because Schwartzy came (back), probably" and it's hard to tell how much of it is a compliment and how much is just poking fun at the narrative. Everyone knows St. Louis has...

Blues goalie Brian Elliott added to the All-Star Game

ST. LOUIS -- Just when it appeared an injury would keep Brian Elliott from making the All-Star game, another one opened up a spot for the Blues' top goaltender Thursday afternoon. The 2012 All-Star clearly has been good enough when he's on the ice, posting a 13-5-2 record to go along with a .930 save percentage and league-best 1.86 goals-against average. But a sprained knee that...

The Blues (29-13-4) won four of the five matchups between the clubs this season. The Avalanche (19-18-10) conclude their season-long five-game road trip with a disappointing 1-2-2 record. “It was the last game of our road trip – five games...

ST. LOUIS -- Jaden Schwartz had a goal and assist and the St. Louis Blues' defense stifled the Colorado Avalanche in a 3-1 victory on Monday night. Brian Elliott made 17 saves, T.J. Oshie scored and defenseman Carl Gunnarsson got his second goal of the season for the Blues. St. Louis has scored in a season-best eight consecutive games, going 7-0-1 in that stretch.

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...

Blues hope to continue push for top spot in Central with win against Avs

The St. Louis Blues keep picking up points as they push for the top spot in the Central Division. They'll try to extend their surge into the All-Star break as they take on a Colorado Avalanche team that has played much better in the past three weeks. St. Louis looks to record at least a point for the eighth straight game and extend its home point streak to seven when it faces the...

With the trade deadline coming up, there were indications that some big moves were coming up. Ryan Miller had been in the news for months, and a trade finally came to fruition as the St. Louis Blues traded Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier a first-round pick in 2015 and a third-round pick in 2016 to the Buffalo Sabres for Ryan Miller and Steve Ott, their captain...

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...

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. That duo has made the starts during the...

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.
