THE MATCHUP

The St. Louis Blues and Winnipeg Jets will meet again Sunday afternoon to complete the second game of a home-and-home set at Enterprise Center.

The Blues earned a 5-4 overtime win in the first game on Friday night at Bell MTS Place. David Perron scored the overtime game-winner, his fourth overtime winner of the season, while Tyler Bozak scored two goals and Jaden Schwartz added three assists.

"I like playing the Jets. They're a fun team to play against. It's heavy games, hard minutes," Perron said. "You have to take care of the puck because they're so good on the rush, at all times they can get going. They've got a lot of speed, their team speed is really good. We have to rely on our structure and many things like that to have success. We get another crack at them so it's going to be nice."

Including the postseason, the Blues are 6-2-0 in the last eight meetings between the clubs.

The Blues will be looking to extend their winning streak to eight games, which would be a new season-best. The Blues previously recorded a seven-game winning streak from Oct. 27 to Nov. 9 this season.

Pietrangelo is expected to play in his 728th game on Sunday, which will move him ahead of David Backes for sixth on the Blues' all-time list. The Blues are 7-0-0 in their 12-game stretch of games against Western Conference opponents.
