11:40 AM ET 04.12 | The Blues are 6-0-0 in the month of April, after falling out of the top eight in the Western Conference at its beginning. They seem to have consciously desired to just no allow a goal in the doing so. St. Louis goaltender Brian Elliott extended his shutout streak to 189:31 in the Blues' 2-0 shutout of the Minnesota Wild Thursday night. This is the second time in 13 months that the Blues have had a shutout streak lasting three-plus games. "Don't wanna jinx him," Blues captain David Backes said when asked about Elliott's streak. "We want to knock on wood after every interview, but he's been a battler for us, lays it on the line and has worked his butt off to get back into the shape he's in, as far as having that confidence, and knowing that every time he's in the net, we're going to have a great performance." The Blues currently sit sixth in the Western Conference with 48 points.

They should change their name to ESPN - the Extra Sensorial Perception Network.

They are cheap they laid off their writer's to save money during the lockout now they hire them from HS creative writing classes...
So Puck must feel pretty lightheaded like Danny boy with your team looking like they are going to the dance. Like your teams chances a bit better w/Nabby in net as opposed to Reimer although to be fair he's had a good bounce back season after last years debacle at the ACC

Pretty excited over here. They've been firing on all cylinders lately and JT hasn't really been the reason lately. Their second line has been amazing out there.

Trying not to get too excited just yet but it's hard not too. Big one against the Rags tomorrow night.

He was still concussed last year.Reimer is becoming one of the league's better goalies. Hopefully he puts up some solid numbers in the playoffs to give the team a chance.

He sucked before the concussion
