To the chagrin of Captain Ryan O’Reilly, the St. Louis Blues were bad on the system, at least in the 8-0 loss Friday night in Denver, against the Colorado Avalanche.

“We embarrassed ourselves and it was very frustrating,” O’Reilly was quoted as saying on the NHL website. From the start of the match, we could say we didn’t have it, and then gave it up by not doing the little things. ”
The Blues captain defended only one player on his team: goaltender Jordan Binnington. However, he had to be replaced by his assistant Ville Husso after conceding four goals in 24 shots in two periods.
See the highlights of the meeting in the video above.
“The whole time he was on goal, he made some significant savings, but as soon as they scored the first goal, we were on our heels,” O’Reilly said. Right now everyone is in trouble. ”
Stir the forces
Naturally, Blues head coach Craig Berube was not too happy with the situation.
“It should wake us up,” he said. This is a tough league and you have to show up for every game, you have to be ready to compete and you have to play the right way. We are a structured hockey team, we play very defensively and we have not shown it in this game. ”
The Blues (1-1-0) will have a chance to redeem themselves in their next game, Monday’s collective effort, in Monday’s match against the San Jose Sharks in St. Louis.
