The St. Louis Blues have had a lousy start to their season. After firing coach Mike Yeo, their defense continues to struggle and they continue to blow leads. Many are beginning to wonder what the Blues will do to address the problems they face.

The interim coach Craig Berube will fill in and do his best to coach them through the season, even though they haven’t shown any signs of improving. The Blues are bound to be sellers at the trade deadline in order to get prospects and draft picks in return.

The Blues have continued to blow leads. Wednesday night the Blues lost in a shootout to the Edmonton Oilers. They lost to a former coach—who the Oilers recently hired— Ken Hitchcock. The Blues were up 2-0 and blew it in the third period after Oscar Klefbom scored the tying goal late of the third period. Connor McDavid eventually scored to doom the Blues in shootout.

The future does not look bright for the Blues. Maybe for Christmas they should ask Santa for a new work ethic and possibly then they can actually start the New Year off by winning a few games in row. That would really be a Christmas miracle.
