Blues continue free fall with 7th straight loss

The St. Louis Blues are picking a really bad time to be playing their worst hockey of the season.

St. Louis lost it’s seventh straight game and ninth since the All-Star break Tuesday night, getting completely embarrassed by the Minnesota Wild in a lopsided 8-3 contest, prompting head coach Mike Yeo to rip into his team postgame.

“The turnovers that we have and the lack of respect that we have for our goaltenders and for the game of hockey, that’s ridiculous,” said Yeo, according to Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic.

Over the seven-game stretch, the Blues have been badly outscored 29-10.

The latest loss continues an awful month for Yeo’s men, as the Blues have managed only three wins since the calendar flipped to February, allowing 41 goals while struggling to generate much offense – especially lately.

One of the main reasons for St. Louis’ tailspin has been its inability to bury the biscuit, as the Blues have managed only 36 goals in their last 12 games, which included a goalless stretch of 150:23.

Entering the season, St. Louis was considered a dark-horse pick to take home the Cup. But, as it stands, the Blues find themselves on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture looking in.
