BLUES The St. Louis Blues have won seven consecutive games at Enterprise Center, which is the longest active home winning streak in the League and is tied for the longest in the NHL during the 2019-20 season.
"We take a lot of pride in playing in front of our fans and in our town," Blues forward Alexander Steen said after a 5-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night at Enterprise Center. "We want to make sure that it's a difficult place to play in, but in saying that, we don't really change much as far as (our play) on the road and at home. We have to have a consistent game and we try to focus as much as we can on ourselves and how we can get better."
Steen, Robert Thomas and Tyler Bozak each contributed three points in Thursday's win.
The longest home winning streak in Blues history is nine games, which was set from Jan. 26 - Feb. 26, 1991.

RANGERS Tony DeAngelo had a hat trick and two assists to match a New York Rangers record for goals and points by a defenseman in a game on Thursday in the Rangers' 6-3 win against the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Garden. Artemi Panarin added a goal and two assists and goalie Igor Shesterkin made 46 saves in the win.
Shesterkin, who is behind Henrik Lundqvist and Alexandar Georgiev on the Rangers' depth chart, has started two straight games and won both.
The Rangers currently rank seventh in the Metropolitan Division with a 21-18-4 record (46 points). Panarin, who signed as a free agent in the offseason, leads the club with 61 points (24 goals, 37 assists) - a full 20 points ahead of second-place Ryan Strome.
HEAD-TO-HEAD The Blues will meet the New York Rangers for the first time in the 2019-20 season. The Blues are 3-3-0 in the last six meetings with New York and 7-2-1 in their last 10 meetings overall.
Brayden Schenn is expected to play in his 200th game as a Blue... The Blues are 20-0-5 when scoring first and are the only team in the NHL without a regulation loss in that scenario... David Perron has scored a goal in three consecutive games... Ryan O'Reilly has points in four straight games (six assists).
