Monday night’s 6-1 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights had approximately zero bright spots other than to remind fans that the trade deadline is Monday. The Blues are now in fifth place in the West Division, five points behind the Arizona Coyotes (who they only play once more this season), and incapable of scoring.
