The St. Louis Blues (14-5-3) and the Nashville Predators (10-9-3) will meet for the second time in three days on Monday night at Bridgestone Arena.
Nashville got the best of the Blues in Saturday's matchup - a 4-2 win that snapped a six-game losing streak for the Predators.
"They got a couple bounces early, but even saying that, that's not our brand of hockey," Blues forward Brayden Schenn said after the game. "Turned over the puck too much, sat back, didn't take care of the puck and it (caused) them to get good chances and break out with the puck. Our turnovers led to their offense and we have to clean it up for next time."
"They were more desperate and definitely came out harder than we did," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said. "…We didn't play good enough to win the game."

Klim Kostin scored his first career NHL goal in just his fourth game on Saturday. Captain Alex Pietrangelo was believed to have scored his 100th career goal - which would have made him just the second defenseman to score 100 goals with the Blues (Al MacInnis) - but it was credited to Jaden Schwartz upon further inspection on Sunday.
The Blues will be without defenseman Robert Bortuzzo for the next four games. Bortuzzo was suspended by the NHL Department of Player Safety for cross-checking Nashville's Viktor Arvidsson on Saturday. The Blues recalled defenseman Derrick Pouliot and forward Nathan Walker from the San Antonio Rampage on Sunday night.
Troy Brouwer is expected to make his regular-season debut on Monday if his visa paperwork is completed. Jake Allen will start in goal.
