TEAM SNAPSHOTS

BLUES A 4-3 shootout win on Saturday night against the Dallas Stars gave the St. Louis Blues their seventh consecutive victory and kept them atop the standings in the Western Conference and Central Division.

The Blues now have the longest active winning streak in the NHL and have three winning streaks this season of at least seven games.

In the streak, the Blues have scored 25 goals and allowed just 12.

"I think that our team knows how to win," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said. "You win seven, eight in a row three times, it means you're winning games where you're probably not playing your best hockey. It's hard to play really good hockey every night. You've got to find ways to win games without playing your best game. We've done a pretty good job of that."

RANGERS The New York Rangers enter Tuesday's game against the Blues with back-to-back losses to the Philadelphia Flyers.

But, the Rangers are 9-3-0 in their last 12 games and are just four points out of a Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference - with games in hand on the Columbus Blue Jackets, who held the final playoff spot in the East as of Monday afternoon.

Artemi Panarin has 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) during a 13-game point streak, which is the best in the NHL. Mike Zibanejad has 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists) in his last 14 games.

HEAD-TO-HEAD The Blues and Rangers meet Tuesday for the second and final time in the regular season. The Blues won the first meeting between the clubs 5-2 on Jan. 11 at Enterprise Center.

The Blues are 3-2-0 in their last five games against the Rangers.

HOT VS. RANGERS

- David Perron has a five-game point streak (three goals, two assists)

- Alex Pietrangelo has six points in his last five games (two goals, four assists)

- Brayden Schenn has seven points in his last seven games (three goals, four assists)

- Jaden Schwartz has five points in his last five games (two goals, three assists)

- Ryan O'Reilly has seven points in his last nine games (three goals, four assists)


BLUE NOTES

O'Reilly is expected to play in his 800th career NHL game on Tuesday night… With his next goal on the road, Pietrangelo will become just the fifth defenseman in franchise history to score 10 or more on the road in a single season… The Blues' next win will be the 1,900th in franchise history. Only seven NHL clubs have reached that number.
