Former CBJ coach Hitchcock has Blues singing NHL playoffs

There was no doubt that before Ken Hitchcock got to St. Louis, the Blues hockey team was not anywhere near being an NHL playoff team under the direction of Davis Payne.

But since the former Blue Jackets coach has been behind the bench, the Blues are singing playoffs.

Since his hiring, St. Louis is 23-6-7 and are only two points behind Detroit for first place in the overall NHL standings.

The Blue Jackets management must be seething right now because they could’ve re-installed him behind their bench while he was still a club adviser, but elected to wait out a turnaround with now-fired Scott Arniel.

One of the reasons the Blues are so good, is that they have one of the best one-two punches in goal with Bruce Elliott and Jaroslav Halak. Elliott is 15-5-1 with a 1.68 goals-against-average while Halak is 13-7-5 with a 2.00 GAA. The duo have combined for 9 shutouts.
