Blues’ Berglund injured against Stars

Apr 12, 2014, 12:38 AM EDT

The injuries just keep piling up for the St. Louis Blues. As do the losses.

On Friday against the Dallas Stars, Blues’ forward Patrik Berglund left the game in the third period with what Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described as a possible shoulder/collarbone injury.

According to Rutherford, Blues’ head coach Ken Hitchcock simply said Berglund “is out.”

The Blues, now losers of five straight after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Dallas, began Friday’s game without David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Vladimir Tarasenko, Derek Roy, Brenden Morrow and Vladimir Sobotka – all because of injury. That forced the recall of scoring prospect Ty Rattie, who made his debut against the Stars.

      More than ever I hate you Blomfeld. Go find a hole and stay there.

    I gotta hand it to the Blues. I really thought nobody would be able to touch the Pens in the “injury bug killing your team” department, but the Blues are getting pretty close. They haven’t lost anywhere near the shear number, but the importance of the games their stars are missing and even more so, the first round matchup they’ve potentially dug themselves into depending on what Colorado does this weekend, has really looked to really impact their morale leading into the playoffs. Getting back Toews and Kane is gonna be a huge lift for Chicago. I think they’re both gonna be at 100%, whereas the stars that the Blues might be getting back would probably already be back if they were ready to go. The Blues still have something to gain from winning games, the Hawks really don’t. Maybe I’m wrong, but for me, the difference between Minnesota and Chicago is huge if I’m the Blues. For me as a Pens fan, it’s sorta like the difference between a Blue Jackets and Flyers for a first round matchup. One of those matchups would obviously be the better choice and the other, regardless of how separated they are in the standings, is gonna be a toss up every time.

    It”s very sad what happened to the Blues right before the playoffs, very sad stuff. I liked Rupp a lot but that was a big no-no what he did..

    Unfortunately the Stanley Cup playoffs tend to be a battle of attrition. Sad to see the injury bug hitting the Blues at such a bad time. Gonna be tough to go four rounds now.

    Rupp is a scumbag who doesn’t belong in the NHL…he has zero skill and he’s a goon. Tj Oshie is worthy of being “loved.” People actually pay to go watch him play.

    I hope Rupp gets his Achilles severed.

    And I’m not even a Blues fan. He’s scum.

    Since I don’t have a lot of confidence that my kings will get out of the pacific division playoff rounds, I was hoping to jump on the blues bandwagon. It looks like that aint gonna happen.
