OK, the honeymoon is over for Mike Yeo and the St. Louis Blues.
Confidence seemed low and frustrations appeared high after the Blues lost a season-high fourth game in a row, falling 2-1 to the Edmonton Oilers in regulation.
With the Nashville Predators starting to pull away thanks to a four-game winning streak, the Blues face the increasing possibility of having to hold off the wild card crowd or miss the playoffs entirely. The tension seems to be building.
Paul Stastny brought the most vitriol in his post-game comments, but virtually every reaction had some element of dejection, frustration, anger or confusion.

The Blues need to shake off this stretch, as March will begin in an unfriendly way. They begin a three-game road trip on Friday and play eight of their next 10 games on the road.
That’s the kind of stretch that could break a fragile team, so we’ll see if Yeo can right the ship.
