After an epic 25-year playoff run that ended in 2004, the Blues began a period of rebuilding. In 2016, the Blues are back in business and have made a steady string of postseason appearances.

St. Louis Blues News
The St. Louis Blues have been on a tear lately, and their streak just might earn them a spot in the NHL playoffs next month. As of March 22, the Blues had a record of 39-28-5, good enough for third place in the Central Division of the Western Conference. The Blues had 83 points heading into their March 23 game against Vancouver, well behind the first- and second-place teams in their division, Chicago and Minnesota.
However, from March 15 to March 21, St, Louis won four in a row. The team also won nine of 10 games from March 5–21. This followed a five-game losing streak in what has been a season of highs and lows.
The St. Louis Blues are on a roll, with the latest victory against the Kings bringing their winning streak to five games. It was an intense game, with the first period an intense back and forth that ended with no goals on either side. The Blues finally broke the momentum in the second period when David Perron scored, and Magnus Paajarvi and Alexander Steen scored in the third to secure the victory. The offense was helped by Jake Allen, who made 38 saves. The Blues will look to continue their winning streak when they play the Ducks, Sharks, Coyotes, and Avalanche on the road on the 15, 16, 18, and 21 respectively. Tickets are still on sale, with prices starting at $14.
It takes a lot of impressive defense to keep the Pittsburgh Penguins from scoring, and that’s exactly what Carter Hutton and the St. Louis Blues provided on January 24.

St. Louis had lost its previous three games and was in serious need of a win, so this effort will hopefully help the team right the ship as the Blues try to push forward and earn a spot in the playoffs. The Blues will next host the Winnipeg Jets on January 31, and tickets are available starting at $63.
This season has been full of ups and downs for the St. Louis Blues, but at this point, they have to start being more consistent.

The goal broke the 3-3 tie in favor of the Blues, who weren't able to keep the momentum going for the next game; they lost to Boston 5-3 on Tuesday.

The St. Louis Blues have been playing well at home in recent games and the team was looking to keep that trend going when the Buffalo Sabres came to town on November 15. Things were looking a bit shaky as the two teams entered the third period tied at one goal apiece, but that's when St. Louis took over. The Blues added three goals before the final period ended, going on to beat the Sabres by a score of 4-1. St. Louis will need that kind of scoring when the team hosts a stingy Minnesota Wild squad on November 26. Tickets for that game are available starting as low as $36.
Based on the stat sheet, one could surmise that the St. Louis Blues didn’t even show up for the team’s game against the New York Rangers on November 1. By the end of the second period, New York was up by a score of 5-0, which would end up being the final tally. Rangers’ goalie Hendrik Lundqvist recorded a season-high 35 saves in the shutout while St. Louis fell behind by three in the first period and was never able to get back on track. The Blues’ players are hoping things will improve during an upcoming homestretch that includes a game against the Buffalo Sabres on November 15. Tickets for that showdown start as low as $17.
The St. Louis Blues dropped its first game of the season against the Vancouver Canucks, losing in overtime by a score of 2-1. It looked as though the Blues might remain undefeated, as the team was clinging to a 1-0 lead until late in the third period when Bo Hovart of the Canucks scored the tying goal that forced the extra time. Giving up a lead always stings, but St. Louis fans can take comfort in the fact that the team still played well in a losing effort. The Blues have a string of home games coming up, including a showdown with the Detroit Red Wings on October 27. Tickets for that game start at $34.
The leadership for the St. Louis Blues is going to look a little different this year. With David Backes leaving the team, they needed to determine who would step up and lead as the captain. The team recently announced that Alex Pietrangelo will take on the role, making him the team's 21st captain. There will also be some new alternate captains. With a younger roster, the team decided to select four alternate captains this season. Kevin Shattenkirk, Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko will join Alexander Steen as alternate captains for the team. The preseason starts on September 25 with split squad games against the Blue Jackets, and you can still get tickets to the games starting at $11.
