Ryan Reaves didn't like the referee's decision to give the Blues an extra penalty on a scrum in Game 4 against Nashville Tuesday night.
"I think it's a terrible call," Reaves said. "I disagree with it 100 percent. There's 10 guys all grabbing one guy and you pick one extra on one team in a crucial part of the game in a big series ... I think it's bad judgment." Reaves and Joel Edumundson got roughing minors along with Predators forward Cody McLeod. The Predators scored on the ensuing power play to take a 1-0 lead early in the third period. Nashville got a 2-1 victory in the contest and now St. Louis is one loss away from playoff elimination.

Ryan Reaves scored the only goal for the Blues in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.

Reaves was standing in front and managed to tip Scottie Upshall's shot from the boards passed Pickard 12:29 into the first period. It's Reaves' 5th goal of the year, one shy of his career high of six set during the 2014-15 season. He is nothing more than a 4th liner and has no business being on any fantasy teams.

Ryan Reaves scored his first goal of the season in Friday's 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Reaves isn't exactly known for filling the net. This was his first goal since March 16. "It’s been a long time coming," said Reaves. "Just being able to celebrate in the huddle with all the boys. Usually it’s the other guys I’m giving taps to, so it was good just to have the boys give me a couple of taps."

The game misconduct penalty that Ryan Reaves received against Chicago on Wednesday has been rescinded by the NHL.

"You could see I disagreed with the call," said Reaves. "I think the league did too. There was no discipline against me and they took away the 10-minute on my record. It was a clean hit. Just a Blues-Blackhawks game." The game misconduct infraction would have been his second of the season and a third results in an automatic one-game suspension.
