Top Blues News

  • Blues' Ryan O'Reilly: Leads charge in comeback win

    O'Reilly scored a goal on three shots and added the winning marker in the shootout in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay.

    O'Reilly's contributions bookended the Blues' comeback. He gave them some hope by cutting the Lightning's lead to 3-1 early in the second period with his fourth goal of the season. After St. Louis tied it, O'Reilly scored the only goal for either team in the shootout to secure two valuable points in the standings. He's up to 11 points in 18 appearances, which is a disappointing early output considering O'Reilly finished just shy of a point per game with 54 in 56 last season.

  • Blues' Jordan Binnington: Overcomes early struggles

    Binnington turned aside 30 of 33 shots through overtime and all three shootout attempts in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Lightning.

    Binnington looked like he was headed for an early hook after giving up three goals in the first 5:29, including two just five seconds apart. Remarkably, the battle-tested netminder bounced back and didn't give up another one after that. The Blues clawed their way back into it with two goals in the second and finally tied it up early in the third before Ryan O'Reilly netted the lone shootout tally to complete the comeback.

  • Blues' David Perron: Set to miss out Tuesday

    Perron (upper body) will not be in action versus the Lightning on Tuesday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Perron was rolling prior to getting hurt, as he had racked up seven points in his previous seven outings, though he had just one goal to show for it. Still, without the winger available, along with Tyler Bozak (COVID-19 protocols) and James Neal (undisclosed), the Blues are set to deploy seven defensemen versus Tampa Bay.

  • Blues' Jordan Binnington: In goal Tuesday

    Binnington will get the starting nod at home versus the Lightning on Tuesday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Binnington continues to struggle with just one win in his last six outings while posting a 3.34 GAA over that stretch. The 28-year-old's subpar performance has seen him giving up more starts to backup Ville Husso, a trend that could continue if Binnington can't find a way to step up his game soon.

  • Blues' Tyler Bozak: Lands in virus protocols

    Bozak entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday.

    Bozak will miss Tuesday's game versus Tampa Bay at a minimum. The veteran pivot, who's picked up seven points through 21 contests this campaign, will need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before rejoining the Blues.

  • Blues' David Perron: Remains day-to-day

    Perron (upper body) was classified as day-to-day after missing Monday's practice session, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Perron -- who was unavailable versus Columbus on Saturday -- racked up six points in his prior five contests before getting hurt, including a trio of power-play helpers. If the veteran winger can't play versus the Lightning on Tuesday, Logan Brown could make his season debut in his stead.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Sets up goal in commanding win

    Parayko produced an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    His secondary apple in the third period put the Blues up 6-2. This year, Parayko is starting only 37.4 percent of his even-strength shifts in the offensive zone, the lowest mark of his seven-year stint with the Blues. Still, with one goal and eight assists through 21 games, the veteran defenseman seems to be doing just enough to stay relevant in deep fantasy leagues.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: On long-term injured reserve

    The Blues placed Kostin (upper body) on long-term injured reserve Sunday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    The forward will miss no fewer than 10 games with the upper-body injury, which forced his exit from Saturday's game against Columbus. Thus, the soonest he could return will be Dec. 21. Kostin has tallied a pair of goals and three assists in 18 games this season.

  • Blues' Logan Brown: Joins NHL club

    The Blues recalled Brown from AHL Springfield on Sunday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    The 2016 first-round pick takes the roster spot of Klim Kostin (upper body), who was placed on injured reserve Sunday. If he plays, Brown figures to get nothing more than bottom-line minutes for the Blues. He has tallied 17 points in 19 games for AHL Springfield this season.

  • Blues' Ivan Barbashev: Three goals in last two games

    Barbashev scored twice Saturday in a 6-3 win over St. Louis.

    He scored on a rebound with a one-handed tip-in early in the second that put the Blues up 2-1. And then he pushed the score to 6-2 late in the third. Barbashev has three goals in his last two games and a solid 13 points (seven goals, six assists) in 21 games. If he sustains this pace, Barbashev will flirt with a possible 50-point season. And that's from the middle six. He's a sneaky fantasy play.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Rings up another win

    Husso made 24 saves Saturday in a 6-3 win over Edmonton.

    Husso is now 3-1-0 with a 1.76 GAA and .936 save percentage in four starts. The Blues' crease clearly belongs to Jordan Binnington, but Husso provides an excellent secondary spot for those who already have Binnington on their rosters. Better to be safe than sorry.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: More apples in the basket

    Tarasenko put up three assists Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He did it in under 16 minutes of action. The sniper's game has evolved this year -- Tarasenko hasn't scored a goal since Nov. 14 (seven games), but instead he keeps putting multiple apples in the basket. He has 19 points, including 12 helpers, in 21 games.

  • Blues' Pavel Buchnevich: Six points on three-game streak

    Buchnevich had two goals and an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Buchnevich has 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in the past 11 games, including six points (four goals, two assists) on a three-game point streak. It took the former Ranger a bit to get this season, but he's turned the burner up to high since early November. Buchnevich is a strong fantasy play.

  • Blues' James Neal: Shifts to LTIR

    Neal (undisclosed) was placed on long-term injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    When Neal's injury was initially announced, he was considered day-to-day, but he will now miss significantly more time. He won't be eligible to return until mid-December at the earliest, though no timeline for his recovery has been announced.

  • Blues' David Perron: Not available Saturday

    Perron (upper body) won't play Saturday versus the Blue Jackets, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Perron's absence will be a big loss for the Blues' top six and power play. He has 18 points in 20 games this season. Dakota Joshua is expected to enter the lineup, although it seems that the Blues will have to dress at least seven defensemen in the contest. More information should be available on Perron's status ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Lightning.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Will not return Saturday

    Kostin (upper body) won't return to the lineup Saturday versus the Blue Jackets, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    The Blues' forward depth will be tested Saturday, as David Perron (upper body) is also out. Kostin's next chance to return will be Tuesday versus the Lightning, but there's been no timeline given yet. More information on Kostin's status should surface Sunday if the Blues hold a practice session.
