BLUES RUMORS & GOSSIP

For third straight year, St. Louis Blues make an early exit

ST. LOUIS (AP) For the third straight year, it's one and done for the St. Louis Blues. Jobs may be on the line after coach Ken Hitchcock's team won the Central Division but fell flat in the playoffs in a six-game opening-round loss to the Minnesota Wild. The Blues had believed this was their best chance at winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup with four strong lines, solid defense...

Poll: Should the Blues fire Ken Hitchcock?

The St. Louis Blues once again burned out of the playoffs in the first round. There’s a ton of blame to hand out, but inevitably one name always surfaces when fans start talking about change: Ken Hitchcock. The benefit of the doubt has been given to Hitchcock over the last few years, but it sounds like his time might be up in St. Louis after another team he led looked uninspired...

Changes on the horizon for the St. Louis Blues

After a back and forth series, the Minnesota Wild have finally finished off the St. Louis Blues. The Blues first round exit is no doubt a disappointment for fans and the organization, both of whom expected better results from this Blues team. Given their early playoff exit this season, and their poor record in the playoffs in past seasons, one has to think change is coming for the...

Video: Ken Hitchcock says he won’t change goalies, immediately changes his mind

Hockey is sometimes painfully ironic. The latest example of that was when Ken Hitchcock was interviewed on the bench and reiterated that he wasn’t going to make a goalie change after Jake Allen coughed up a soft goal against the Wild. Hitchcock said that Allen is a young guy who is learning and the team has to stick with him. Approximately 30 seconds and another soft goal later...

Blues' Jackman: It could be cup or bust regarding future with St. Louis

The Stanley Cup has eluded the St. Louis Blues for their entire 47-year history. Naturally, Barret Jackman — who has spent his whole 12-year NHL career with St. Louis, has never enjoyed the opportunity to hoist the highly coveted 34.5 pound piece of silver either. This year is thought to be different for Jackman and the Blues, though. They championed the highly competitive Central...

Vladimir Tarasenko Scores Filthy Breakaway Goal In Game 4

St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko is worth the price of admission all by himself.
