Weird Hockey History: Crying The Blues

The St. Louis Blues are the only team to go to the Stanley Cup final in each of their first three NHL seasons, but the Blues have never won a Stanley Cup final game, going 0-12.

The Blues have employed the four of the five winningest coaches in NHL history – Scotty Bowman (1,244), Joe Quenneville (890), Ken Hitchcock (833) and Al Arbour (782) – but have never won the Stanley Cup.

Those four coaches combined to win 17 Stanlecy Cups at the helm of other NHL teams – nine by Bowman (five with Montreal Canadiens, one with the Pittsburgh Penguins, three with the Detroit Red Wings), four by Arbour (all with the New York Islanders), three by Quenneville (all with the Chicago Blackhawks) and one by Hitchcock (with the Dallas Stars).
