Blues news

Hockey news

  • Wednesday's results. Games we want: Buffalo over Dallas. Check. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Thursday games. Games we want: Thrasher over Columbus, Minnesota over Detroit (again on principal), Ottawa over Cal and Gary, San Jose over Nashville, and ... St. Louis over New York. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Oh to be an Avs fan — Colorado fans are already talking about who they're going to face in the playoffs, not if they will make the playoffs. [Mile High Hockey]
  • Like all old people, Mike Modano is afraid of change. [Defending Big D]
  • Marc Savard doesn't know where he is, but Matt Cooke won't be suspended for causing that damage. Cam Janssen gets five games ... Matt Cooke gets zero. [ESPN]
  • The GM's were discussing heads to the hit, but does it really matter? No. [ESPN]
  • Matt Cooke is not popular in Tampa Bay.  [TSN]
  • Chris Chelios is back in the NHL. He is twice my age. He is old enough to be my father. He remembers playing in the NHL when ads weren't on the boards. Are you trying to tell me that no one else is good enough to suit up for Atlanta? [TSN]
  • Stealing logos of pro sports teams is never a good idea. Unless you're a high school sports team. [Puck Daddy]
  • Sidney Crosby's stick and glove from the gold-medal game have been found. I knew you couldn't trust Patrice Bergeron. [Yahoo! Sports]
