St. Louis Blues
The St. Louis Blues are a professional ice hockey team based in St. Louis, Missouri. They play in the National Hockey League (NHL). The team is named after the famous W. C. Handy tune "St. Louis Blues".
The Blues were one of the six teams added to the NHL in the 1967 expansion, along with the Minnesota North Stars, Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Oakland Seals, when the league doubled in size. The newcomers were, however, hampered by restrictive rules that kept virtually all the top players with the existing "Original Six" teams.
St. Louis was the last of the expansion teams to officially get in the league.
On January 4th, 2007, the Blues had a record of 6-1-3 in their last 10 games, which was the best in the NHL. Also, they tied an NHL record for going the most amount of games without being scored on in the first period. The number of games is 12, which is also how many games Andy Murrary had been the head coach for. Also, attendance has been up, from a mere 8,000 at the start of the season, to 15,000+ every home game. It seems like hockey is back in St. Louis.
