Straight line math would suggest that Blues defenseman Wade Redden should have faced the Kings several dozen times by now. After all, he’s suited up for over 1,000 NHL games in his 15-year NHL career. However, the former first round draft pick (second overall, 1995) skated in all but seven of those games for Eastern Conference [...]
St. Louis Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock spoke with the local media this morning in advance of playing the Kings later today…

On Saturday we gave you pictures and extended video of Anze Kopitar’s first game in Sweden, where he was playing on a line with his younger brother Gasper. They won that contest 5-4 in a shootout, after rallying from two goals down late in the third period.
Earlier today they returned to action – this time on the [...]
Soccer is the world’s game? Nah, it’s hockey!
No other professional sport in North America features more international stars. Plus, forget about the Dream Team beating up inferior basketball teams in the Olympics. If you’re looking for a truly competitive tournament at the Games, hockey tops all other team sports. Sure, the US and Canada can [...]
“I prefer a guy that knows the Western Conference. I want a guy that’s hands-on. I want a guy that’s a good communicator.

Leave it to the the Blues to slow down the surging Justin Williams. He entered last night with points in nine straight games (four goals, seven assists). However, he has struggled against St. Louis throughout his career – finding the back of the net just once in 17 career games.
And like clock [...]
Beginning tonight in St. Louis, the Kings will play 14 of their next 18 games on the road. And the first one out of the chute won’t be easy for LA, as the Blues have only lost three games on home ice this season. However, one of those came to the Kings in a 3-2 [...]
Earlier today, the National Hockey League let it be known that Kings defenseman Drew Doughty will not be suspended for his hit on the Blues’ TJ Oshie in the final seconds of last night’s game.
As a first time offender, the $2,500 fine levied against him was pretty much as expected.
