The view from St. Louis

It’s a pretty good time to be a Blues fan in St. Louis. Not only has the weather been unseasonably warm, but so has the hockey team. With last night’s win over the Kings, the Blues jumped back over the Nashville Predators and into fourth place in the Western Conference, still within range of first-place Detroit and the top spot in the conference. The Blues are 9-1-2 in 2012 and haven’t lost at home in regulation since Dec. 26 (a run of 14-0-3). Jaroslav Halak has a 12-1-3 record in his last 16 starts, and he wasn’t even the Blues’ All-Star goalie this season, as that honor went to Brian Elliott. Here’s how the St. Louis Post-Dispatch covered last night’s game…

Halak has 21st career shutout in victory over Kings
