  • Brian Elliott had his first shitty night in quite a while, but the Blues scored six goals for the first time in quite a while, so it all worked out. 6-4 final over the Coyotes (errrrrr, the Peyote Coyotes) on Saturday. HullandOates with your recap. [SLGT]
  • Five For Howling was not as impressed with that game, nor were they impressed with losing Oliver Ekman-Larsson, who is kinda the team's best player. [Five For Howling]
  • Speaking of teams losing good players . . . the Blues lost Alexander Steen to an upper body injury (i.e. a separated shoulder?) early in the game. He's out at least a month. But Jake Allen is back! [SLGT]
  • How should the Blues use Allen? Presumably, not at center. [Frozen Notes]
  • Also, since Allen is back, goaltender Jordan Binnington was sent back to Rosemont. As was defenseman Peter Harrold . . . in favor of Jordan Schmaltz, who will presumably see his NHL debut soon. Forward Dmitrij Jaskin was called up as well. [FSMW]
  • It's "99% certain" that the next Winter Classic will be held January 2, 2017 at Busch Stadium between the Blues and Blackhawks, and that the announcement will be made on March 9th when the two teams are to play each other in a nationally-televised game. BluesMay and I are already setting preparations in motion to drive across the state for this one. [SLGT]
  • Robb had pieces on how hockey is growing in this country thanks to USA Hockey . . . [SLGT] . . . and took a dataviz look at American players on NHL teams . . . [SLGT] . . . to help celebrate Hockey Day in America.
  • Should the Blues make a play for Jets forward and Captain, Andrew Ladd? He does have two more Cup rings than many Blues players, so . . . eh, there's that. [SLGT]


  • News and fan views of the Sharks can be found at Fear The Fin, one of SB Nation's finer team-focused hockey blogs. [Fear The Fin]
  • The last Battle of California game preview involving the Blues was presumably written and set for auto-post about a month ago, because it mentioned Alex Pietrangelo and Jake Allen actually playing in the game . . . which was last week, when both were injured (and one of them still is). Hopefully the Sharks preview is better. [Battle of California]


  • Gary Bettman said you have to find your own Goddamn scores. [ Scores]
  • Maple Leafs forward Shawn Matthias was traded to the Avalanche(s) for a prospect and a fourth-round pick . . . Greg Sherman might still be in charge in Denver, because holy hell, TWO assets for Matthias? Oooooooookay. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • The Wild(s) eviscerated the Blackhawks 6-1 yesterday in a large stadium. [USA Today]
  • In that game, defenseman Michal Rozsival was ejected for this hit on forward Jason Zucker . . . which I didn't think was dirty. What, we're supposed to blame the hitter when the other guy's head hits the ice? Okay. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Oilers forward Taylor Hall is tired of the coach's challenge and his team's shitty arena and its' shitty Wi-Fi. Hey dude, at least your arena fucking HAS Wi-Fi. ***GLARES AT BLUES MANAGEMENT*** [Puck Daddy]
  • Panthers forward and super-legend Jaromir Jagr scored two to pass Brett Hull on the all-time liss. #JagrForever [The Sporting News]
  • The Sabres will miss forward Ryan O'Reilly for three to four weeks with a lower body injury. [TSN]
  • John Scott is really inspiring his teammates to do great things. St. Johns IceCaps forward Bud Holloway made an AMAZING stick save to prevent an empty-net goal Saturday. [Sportsnet]


  • Yesterday's Daytona 500 finish was rather exciting. Here's how it sounded in Spanish. [Deadspin / Screengrabber]
  • Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was a favorite in the race. He crashed. One fan wasn't happy about it and unleashed his fury on his hat and his leg. [SB Nation / #Lookit]
  • America's pistachio growers are worried about competition from a source I doubt anyone would've suspected many moons ago. [NPR / The Salt]
  • A teenager was able to pull off an elaborate hoax in which he impersonated an Ohio state senator at a local school. [Y! / AP]
  • Volkswagen's biggest money-maker? It's not cars. [Nerdist]
  • Why can't you pump your own gas in New Jersey? [Mental Floss]


  • Michigan has its' flaws, but beer isn't one of them. Dragon's Milk from New Holland Brewing in Holland, MI is one of those unflawed beers. [Untappd]


Scott Bradlee, purveyor of the Postmodern Jukebox, has some gems in the earliest portions of his YouTube page. Including this one, dubbed "Jersey Shore As A Silent Film":

I presume it to be quite accurate.

BluesMay returns Thursday. Provided I don't get too drunk to do so in Nashville, I'll have Saturday's links.
