The St. Louis Blues are crashing and burning. With an ugly 8-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild, the Blues have now lost seven consecutive games and are looking like they should have sold more pieces at the deadline.
The losing streak, which has been about as brutal as they come, is now their worst since the 2009-10 season.
