I just checked, and you are correct. Normally when the Blues are on television, they are seen on Fox Sports Midwest St. Louis and Fox Sports Midwest Kansas City.

 

Perhaps the Royals were on the main Fox Sports Midwest Kansas City feed, while the Blues were on one of the alternate channels.

 

The blackout map for the NHL shows that Kansas City is part of the Blues RSN territory.

I hope that someone has an answer why you are not seeing the Blues tonight.

The game was on NBCSports last night. When it's a nationally televised game the local RSN will be blacked out.

I watched the last few minutes of the game on Fox Sports Midwest St. Louis. Was the NBCSports feed available in St. Louis, too, since it was a nationally televised game?

 

Now the question still remains, why couldn't the OP watch it on Fox Sports Midwest Kansas City when it is normally on that channel? The Blues are not blacked out on Fox Sports Midwest Kansas City because I see the Fox Sports Midwest St. Louis feed on that channel most of the times the Blues play.

 

Maybe there is a difference in the rules between Fox Sports Midwest St. Louis and Fox Sports Midwest Kansas City when it comes to national feeds.

The KC Royals were playing last night, so it probably was shifted to an alternate channel.

That is what I thought happened, too. The Blues were on the main Fox Sports Midwest St. Louis feed (748 and 1748) while the Cardinals were on alternate 691 and 1691.

I know here in Columbus, Fox Sports Ohio has been airing the BlueJackets playoff games so far.  All of the broadcasts on NBCSN have been blacked out.

That could be the case.  The OP said it was blacked out, but did not say what channel in was blacked out on.
