Brenden Morrow talks trying to fit in, Dustin Brown and more

Morrow Blues

Brenden Morrow practically made a career out of agitating the Kings when he played with the Dallas Stars and was their long-time captain. His 20 goals and 42 points vs. Los Angeles trail only the 21 goals and 45 points he’s put up against Phoenix for tops against any opponent in his career.

Martin St Louis not in a milestone mood

St Louis Marty TB Lightning

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Martin St. Louis is beyond being described as just the exception to the rule. How many strikes can life throw at a guy, yet he still finds success?
Listed at just 5-foot-8, St. Louis made his NHL debut with Calgary in 1998, but has spent most of his career in Florida. While those few facts [...]

Coach Hitchcock nearly goes ‘Dennis Green’ after Blues loss to Kings

Following Tuesday night’s loss at Staples Center, St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock was not very happy. And can you blame him?  After all, his team was up 4-1 midway though the game, yet managed to not only let the Kings crawl their way back into things, but eventually snatch the two points at stake. Following that third period meltdown, here’s [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 21 – Blues at Kings

That’s right – we have another pair of Ontario Reign tickets up for grabs in tonight’s First Goal Contest…or should we say, the Jeff Carter Contest.

And guess what… when [...]

As usual, this was all done one-on-one, so [...]

St Louis Blues’ coach calls it ‘The homestand from Hell’

Entering the NHL’s 48-game shortened season, Ken Hitchcock’s Blues and Darryl Sutter’s Kings looked to be heading towards the same place – a meeting in the 2013 Western Conference Final.

St. [...]
