The St. Louis Blues were established in the mid 1960s and have spent their entire existence in St. Louis. While that may not seem like a major accomplishment, with all the movement the National Hockey League has experienced over the years, having a team remain in one city for its entirety is a pretty big deal.
Especially after the city of St. Louis lost the Rams to Los Angeles in the National Football League. Outside of the original six teams in the National Hockey League, you could argue that the St. Louis Blues have been one of the most successful. They hold the record for most playoff appearances out of the other 26 National Hockey League franchises.
It certainly didn’t take them long to find success either as they won two divisional championships within their first three years in the National Hockey League. They captured the West Division crown in 1968-69 and 1969-70.
Since then they have gone on to win eight more division titles in the West Division and the Central Division respectively, with their most recent coming only a few years ago in 2019-20 when they won their only Western Conference Finals and Stanley Cup trophy to date. They did win one Presidents trophy at the turn of the century in the 1999-00 National Hockey League season.
They appeared in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in their first seven seasons in the National Hockey League and 10 out of their first 11 seasons overall. They would also win three division championships in those first 11 seasons as well.
Which once again confirms that the St. Louis Blues are perhaps the most successful National Hockey League expansion franchise that doesn’t include the original six teams in the league in those early years. Right off the bat they made it to three straight Stanley Cup Finals in their first three years of existence but failed to win a single game as they were swept in every series.
After missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs for back to back years in 1977-78 and 1978-79 The St. Louis Blues would go on to qualify for 25 straight playoff appearances. In those 25 straight appearances they would win at least one playoff series 13 times.
However, they did not reach another Stanley Cup Finals within that time period. Their lengthy streak would finally end during the National Hockey League lockout season of 2004-05. For the first time in franchise history they would go on to miss the playoffs in five out of the next six seasons.
However in the 11 seasons that followed they would miss the playoffs only once as they qualified for 10 out of the next 11 Stanley Cup Playoffs and even won a Stanley Cup in that time frame. They are currently on a streak of four straight Stanley Cup Playoff appearances as well heading into the 2022-23 season, as they will be looking to return to the Stanley Cup Finals once again.
They were a solid team during the 2021-22 season as they finished with a record of 49-22-10 and would go on to defeat the Minnesota Wild in the first round of the playoffs. However, they would eventually lose in the second round to eventual Stanley Cup winners, the Colorado Avalanche in six games in Round 2.
It is likely that they will eclipse the 2000 win mark as a franchise during the 2022–23 season as they are only around 50 wins away from hitting the milestone. Which shows just how consistent the St. Louis Blues have been throughout the years.
If you are a fan of the St. Louis Blues, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the St. Louis Blues have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup in 2023?
