The St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche will go head-to-head in a do-or-die game on Saturday night.
St. Louis put themselves in a good spot by beating the Blackhawks on Friday night. If the Blues win or manage to pick up a point, they'll be headed to the playoffs. If the Avalanche win in regulation, they'll be the ones to pick up the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. "It clears the picture," Blues coach Mike Yeo said. "Like you say, there’s work to be done but now we know what we need for (Saturday), and obviously that’s gonna be an intense hockey game." Apr 7 - 11:15 AM

St. Louis Blues head coach Mike Yeo said it's time for his team to "stop the bleeding".

The Blues began a stretch of 10 straight games against playoff teams earlier this month and they've gone 2-4-1 so far. "Desperation time was a while ago," Yeo said. "This is where pride has to come in. We’ve got to stop the bleeding and we gotta start building confidence in the game that we’re playing and have the feeling showing up to the rink that everybody’s gonna be ready to go" It'll be interesting to see if the Blues end up adding a piece or two before next Monday's trade deadline.

The St. Louis Blues have scored just one goal in their last two games.

"When you’re not scoring goals, all of it is a factor," coach Mike Yeo said. "You look at our rush play right now, I don’t think we’re fast enough, I don’t think we’re direct enough. I look at our offensive zone play, we’ve got guys at the net, we’re not finding ways to create those shot opportunities, those second-chance opportunities. Too many shots are getting blocked and there’s a little too much one and done in the offensive zone, too. I feel like when we’re on top of our game we’ve got more zone time and are more dangerous because of that."

Mike Yeo admitted that things just don't seem right with the Blues right now.

"It doesn’t feel right," Yeo said after Friday's 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings. "It doesn’t feel like we’re playing like a five-man unit. It doesn’t feel like we’re dangerous. ... Just too easy to score on right now. Giving up the odd-man rushes and the chances against that we are, that’s not a recipe for winning hockey games." The Blues dropped three games during a four-game homestand.

Mike Yeo is excited to take part in his first training camp as head coach of the the St. Louis Blues.

Yeo took over behind the bench towards the middle of last year, after Ken Hitchcock was relieved of his duties. "I’m excited for the start of camp to introduce and add on to what we introduced last year," Yeo said. "The biggest part of our job, we always want to provide the players with the X’s and O’s, and give them the chance to go out and be on the same page is very important. We started to incorporate some of the way we want to play — pace of play and little more of a speed mentality and the structure of the defensive-zone coverage — last year. Some of those things we brought in last year, but given the way the schedule was toward the end of the year, we didn’t bring in everything."

St. Louis has agreed to a one-year affiliation with the ECHL's Tulsa Oilers.

The Blues haven't had an ECHL affiliate for the previous two seasons, but they don't have an AHL team for the 2017-18 campaign. It is expected that St. Louis will have an AHL agreement in 2018-19, with San Antonio, but that has not been officially announced yet. The Blues will loan players this year to other squads in the AHL, including Chicago, San Antonio and perhaps others.

The Blues have left an assortment of interesting forwards off their protected list.

Vegas will certainly kick the tires on Nail Yakupov, David Perron, Dmitrij Jaskin, Jori Lehtera and Ty Rattie. The Blues did protect the following players: Patrik Berglund, Ryan Reaves, Jaden Schwartz, Vladimir Sobotka, Paul Stastny, Alexander Steen, Vladimir Tarasenko, Jay Bouwmeester, Joel Edmundson, Alex Pietrangelo and Jake Allen.

Blues owner Tom Stillman likes the work GM Doug Armstrong is doing.

The Blues were bounced in the second round of the playoffs by Nashville, but that hasn't affected the way Stillman sees Armstrong. "You need to keep a longer view on things like that," said Stillman. "You don’t evaluate the performance of a top-level manager based on the latest current losing streak or a rough patch. I felt confident that Doug was making the right decisions and looking at the long-term, and that’s our focus, being competitive not just this year but next year and the following year." It doesn't sound like Armstrong is on the hot seat right now, but that could change in a hurry if the Blues struggle next season.

The St. Louis Blues might enter the 2017-18 campaign without their own primary AHL affiliate.

With the Blues losing the AHL's Chicago Wolves to the Vegas Golden Knights, it looks like St. Louis will be the only team in the NHL without a primary AHL affiliate. That means the Blues won't have any say over an AHL team's coaching staff or management. The Blues will still be able to send some players to the Wolves, but they won't have enough spots available for all of St. Louis' prospects so they'll need to spread them out among multiple AHL teams. It's a far from ideal scenario, but the AHL will likely expand to 31 franchises in 2018, which will prevent this from happening in the future.

St. Louis has made some cuts to their coaching staff.

GM Doug Armstrong announced Tuesday that Ray Bennett, Steve Thomas, Rick Wilson and Ty Conklin will not return next season. "I would like to thank Ray, Steve, Rick and Ty for their service to the Blues and wish them nothing but the best of luck in the future," said Armstrong. "Mike Yeo and I will work together in the off-season to fill the coaching vacancies for next season."

Mike Yeo believes the Blues will benefit from having his staff behind the bench from the start of training camp.

Yeo took over mid-season after Ken Hitchcock was fired. It can be difficult for teams to adjust to a new coach at that point, but now that they're familiar with Yeo's style, it should take less a little less time to adapt to his system when training camp begins. "It makes an enormous difference as far as how we approach training camp next year," Yeo said. "The biggest part for me is getting to know the players. That’s our biggest job as coaches, to try to help the players, to try and get them to go out and perform at the best level and give them the best chance. So to have the opportunity to work with them, to see what they can give, I think that’s a huge advantage going into next year."

The Blues will be facing a significant challenge Sunday afternoon in Nashville.

In order to force a Game 7 in St. Louis on Tuesday, the Blues are going to have to beat the Predators in Bridgestone Arena, a place in which the Preds have not lost in eight playoff games this season. "They're tight games. We (lost) 2-1 on the second one there," said David Perron. "We just got to go win a game and bring it back to St. Louis. I don't know if we can overthink anything. We've been good on the road since Mike [Yeo] took over. That's what we have to look at. We can't really look at the two games. I do think their crowd is unreal. They've got kind of a smaller rink. It feels like from looking at it anyway, the crowd really gets into it and TV timeouts and things like that. Even if we're outplaying them, it almost feels like they are at times during the game. You have to kind of make sure that we're on top of our game at all moments so we keep the crowd maybe a little lower." It should be an interesting contest.

The Blues have been extremely hot on the road their past 14 games.

If you were thinking that the Predators now have a huge advantage with the series tied 1-1 and the games heading back to Nashville, think again. The Blues have won 12 of their last 14 road games and are 3-0 away from St. Louis during the playoffs thus far. Sunday's matinee should be an interesting matchup.

The Blues did a great job of limiting the Predators opportunities on the power play in Game 2 and hope to do the same in Game 3 Sunday afternoon.

In fact, the Blues kept Nashville's power play off the ice altogether by only getting an incidental minor penalty in the game. That is part of the reason why Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen have combined for only two points in the series thus far.
