ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Blues fired coach Craig Berube on Tuesday night, hours after a 6-4 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

The loss was the season-worst fourth straight for the Blues, who are off to a 13-14-1 start to the season.

Berube guided the Blues to their only Stanley Cup championship in 2019.

The 57-year-old Berube, in his sixth season with the Blues, had a record of 206-131-44.

The Blues named Drew Bannister, coach of the Springfield Thunderbirds of the American Hockey League, as interim coach.
