THE MATCHUP

The St. Louis Blues will look to snap a three-game winless streak (0-2-1) when they meet the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome (8 p.m. CT, FSMW, 101 ESPN).

The Blues dropped a 3-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Monday to begin their four-game road trip across Canada.

"They've got a good team, obviously been good here in this building," goalie Jake Allen said of the Canucks, who have now won nine straight at Rogers Arena. "Our game built as the game went on; it got better, we possessed the puck well and we spent a lot of time in their zone. We had some chances, but it definitely wasn't our sharpest executing game."

"We created a lot of good chances," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said. "We've got to bury a couple. The goalie played well, but we can shoot the puck a little better and capitalize on some chances."

The Blues won't have to wait long to try and rebound.

The Flames (26-19-5) are hosting the Blues on Tuesday and playing in their first game since Jan. 18 - a 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Calgary has won six of its last eight games but has scored just three goals in their last three contests.
