ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues need to regain their home ice aura, and fast.

Coach Ken Hitchcock will do his best to make it happen for Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks..

The Blues had the NHL's best home record in the regular season, but after their 3-2 loss in double overtime on Thursday night they've dropped three in a row. Hitchcock promises changes, although not in goal where he'll stick with Jaroslav Halak over Brian Elliott.

Hitchcock could sit defenseman Kent Huskins, who had several shaky moments, in favor of Carlo Colaiacovo. He could go with Matt D'Agostini or B.J. Crombeen at forward over Chris Stewart, who has been unproductive.

Hitchcock refused to divulge any changes, but said the Blues would not be satisfied with playing well in a loss.
