by Scott Billeck / NHL.com Correspondent

WINNIPEG -- Ondrej Pavelec made 34 saves and set a Winnipeg Jets record for saves in a period when they defeated Pheonix Copley and the St. Louis Blues 5-3 at MTS Centre on Saturday.

Pavelec didn't allow a goal making 25 saves in the second period. He won his second straight game since being recalled from Manitoba of the American Hockey League.

"I felt a bit better than the game before, for sure," said Pavelec, who defeated the Arizona Coyotes 6-3 on Wednesday. "A better start. I had a good practice yesterday. First game was a totally different story than tonight."

Capitals score seven for second straight game

Blues goalie Jake Allen pulled for fourth time in past six starts

by Louie Korac / NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- The Washington Capitals scored seven goals for the second straight game and extended their point streak to 12 with a 7-3 win against the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center on Thursday.

Seven players scored for the Capitals (30-9-6), who are 10-0-2 in their past 12 games. Washington lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins 8-7 in overtime Monday.

"It's obviously fun," Washington forward Marcus Johansson said. "I think we're letting up a few many more than we want to, but it's always fun to score, see a lot of different guys score too. It's good for the team, good for the confidence."

Tarasenko meets old friends tonight vs. Caps

Allen will start in goal after serving as backup for three games

by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

ST. LOUIS - Not that he needs it, but if Vladimir Tarasenko ever wanted some extra motivation to play well or put on a show, tonight's matchup with the Washington Capitals (7 p.m., FSMW, KMOX) will certainly give it to him.

The Capitals' roster boasts three Russian players - Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov - all of whom Tarasenko knows quite well.

Projected Lineup: Jan. 19 vs. Washington

by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

ST. LOUIS - Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock will make several lineup changes tonight when the Blues meet the Washington Capitals at 7 p.m. at Scottrade Center (FSMW, KMOX).

Dmitrij Jaskin will get moved up to a Top 6 role alongside Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko, which allows Scottie Upshall to draw back into the lineup after missing the last three games. Carl Gunnarsson will also return from a lower-body injury that has kept him out of the lineup since the Winter Classic.

Game Notes: Jan. 19 vs. Washington

by Dan O'Neill / St. Louis Blues

The Blues have struggled a bit recently vs. a Washington team that has gone on a tear. The Caps have points in 11 straight games - a stretch that included a nine-game win streak. And what's worse, Alex Ovechkin has logged hat tricks in back-to-back games against St. Louis. Overall, the Blues have dropped two consecutive decisions to the Caps, but, prior to that set, they had won three straight. Tonight is an opportunity for the Blues to bounce back and measure themselves against one of the top teams in the league in the process. St. Louis has lost two in-a-row at home but the good news is that they haven't experienced a three-game home losing streak since March 14-30, 2015.

Game Notes: Jan. 17 vs. Ottawa

by Dan O'Neill / St. Louis Blues

The Blues and Senators like to get their money's worth when they face each others as five of their last six encounters have required overtime with three of those heading to a shootout. In the last series installment, the Blues and Sens participated in a marathon 11-round shootout in Ottawa in which Jake Allen stopped all 11 Senators attempts while Patrik Berglund buried the lone goal for the Blues. Overall, the Blues have won four of their last eight against the Senators while earning at least a point in each game of that set (4-0-4). Coming into tonight, the Blues are carrying a 7-2-1 home record against Eastern Conference competition.
