The St. Louis Blues open the NHL season Saturday at home against the Detroit Red Wings. Is a third lockout in 20 years the last straw for hockey fans?
As fans entered Scottrade Center Sunday for the first St. Louis Blues hockey club's practice following a four month lockout, they were invited to pick up placards with the familiar "Let's Go Blues" cheer. Jack Gillette and his daughter Joanie, of St. Peters, didn't need the freebie. They came prepared with their own sign, designed by Jack's wife Michelle with a slogan that pretty much summed up fan sentiment: "It's About Pucking Time." The team estimates about 5500 fans came out to the free practice Sunday, followed by a Q&A session with players. The fans in the stands talked about the team's new Russian sensation Vladimir Tarasenko, but also how Tom Stillman, the new owner with ties to the Ladue-Frontenac area, was among the first in the …

Check out the latest sports developments in South County.
Hockey The Lutheran South and Whitfield hockey teams put on a game for the ages in the Wickenheiser Cup championship contest Wednesday night at the Scottrade Center. The teams battled through a 5-5 tie in the 45 minutes of regulation and then through another 10 minutes of sudden death overtime. The championship would eventually be determined by a three-man shootout. Whitfield's Hunt Lucas was the only player on either side to score in the shootout and the Warriors had a 6-5 victory. "It was a heart-breaker," Lutheran South coach Dan Bertarelli said. "But somebody has to win and somebody has to lose. It was a great game. We fought back a couple of times but came up just short. Sometimes in life you work hard and it just doesn't happen. I …

Wrestling The Seckman wrestling team finished fourth in the state in Class 4 last winter. The Jaguars look to equal or even better that mark this weekend at the Mizzou Arena.

Oakville took the two game tournament after the 1-1 tie.
It was a tough way for the season to end for the Flyers. "This was such an evenly-matched series," Lindbergh coach Greg Anderson said. "We played them four times and tied them three and the other was basically a one-goal game with an empty net goal." A tie amounted to a loss for the Lindbergh Flyers Monday night in the second game of the best-of-two Challenge Cup series against the Oakville Tigers . Oakville, which had won the first game of the series 5-3 Thursday, held on for a 1-1 tie in a thriller at the Kennedy Recreation Center. "I thought we matched up well with them and vice versa," Anderson said. "We threw everything but the kitchen sink at them but I have to commend Zach Jost. He had a great game. I thought we were hesitant and …

In hockey, Oakville won the Southwest Division while Summit captured the South Division title.

The winter has been a good one so far for several area teams in the Mid-States Hockey Association. Rockwood Summit and Oakville are leading their respective conferences. Seckman, Lindbergh and Lutheran South are also all within striking range as the regular season comes to a conclusion shortly. Summit is a perfect 9-0-0 in the Suburban South Conference.

The Jaguars have not won out of conference but they are second in the Suburban South with a …
