After winning a ninth straight game, 8-3 against the Nashville Predators, coach Craig Berube said the St Louis Blues need to keep pushing as the NHL season heads towards the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Blues, 16/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, broke a franchise record by scoring seven goals in the second period against the Predators, an achievement forward Jordan Kyrou said shouldn't come as a huge surprise given the depth of offensive talent at Berube's disposal.
St Louis are 11-0-1 over their past 12 fixtures and have scored at least four goals in each game over that stretch, the longest in the NHL since the 1992/93 Pittsburgh Penguins (15 games).
With a 46-20-10 record, the Blues are second in the Central Division, one point ahead of the Minnesota Wild.
Colorado Avalanche have won the divisional title.
56-year-old Berube began life in St Louis as an assistant coach and in November 2018 was promoted following the firing of Mike Yeo.
After taking over in an interim position, the Blues recorded a franchise best 11-game winning streak and sensationally went on to win the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in their history.
The interim tag was removed following the season and he signed a three-year contract.
In February 2022, Berube committed his future further to the Blues signing a another three-year deal.
He said to the media: "I'm very happy with the team, the way they're performing. They are playing for each other and right now, they are doing a good job.
"It's all about the team. They've got to stick with that. We've got to keep pushing. We've got to move on from this game."
