BLUES The St. Louis Blues got back to their winning ways with a 6-3 victory against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night to begin a three-game homestand.
The Blues have now collected points in 11 straight games at home (10-0-1), which is tied for the fourth-longest points streak in franchise history (the longest was 21 games - 18-0-3 - set from Dec. 6, 2011 - Feb. 18, 2012).
"We played pretty solid from start to finish," Brayden Schenn said after collected three points (two goals, one assist) in Tuesday's win. "We seem to do pretty well when we get the first one and (Sammy Blais) was able to get an early one for us. Everyone chipped in tonight."
Zach Sanford also added two goals for the Blues, extending his points streak to a career-best six games (four goals, five assists).
The Blues extended their lead atop the Western Conference standings (72 points) and are seven points ahead of the second-place Dallas Stars (65 points).

JETS After beating the Blues at home last Saturday to spoil Steen's 1,000th NHL game, the Jets dropped a 2-1 overtime decision on Tuesday night to the division rival Nashville Predators.
"They did a good job blocking shots," Jets captain Blake Wheeler told NHL.com after the game. "We didn't get everything through, probably didn't have as much net-front traffic as we could have. Just couldn't capitalize."
The Jets, who sit in fourth place in the Central Division, will play the Blues on Thursday before returning home for a six-game homestand.
Winnipeg is 14-11-2 on the road this season.
HEAD-TO-HEAD The Blues are 2-1-0 against the Jets this season. Including the 2019 postseason, the Blues are 7-3-0 in their last 10 games against Winnipeg.
