GDT: Blues @ Calgary 830p CST FS-MW

Postby SteveO » Wed Dec 23, 2009 9:10 am

BLUES (16-14-5) at FLAMES (20-11-4)

Last 10: St. Louis 6-4-0; Calgary 4-5-1.

Season Series: This is the third of four meetings between the teams. The Flames earned a 2-1 overtime win in St. Louis on Nov. 5 before the Blues reclaimed their home-ice advantage with a 4-3 victory on Dec. 15.

Big Story: St. Louis has enjoyed nothing but success thus far on its four-game road trip, earning victories in Vancouver and Edmonton in the first two contests. The Blues will finish their trip on Saturday at Minnesota.

Team Scope:

Blues: Andy Murray's club is coming off an awfully impressive performance as it steamrolled the Oilers in a 7-2 win at Rexall Place on Monday night. Andy McDonald had a pair of goals in the Blues' second victory in as many nights. They earned a 3-1 win at Vancouver on Sunday.

Special teams played a huge role for St. Louis, as it converted four times with the man advantage despite entering the game with the League's 29th-ranked power play.

"It was nice to get some goals there," said forward Alexander Steen, who had a goal and three assists. "We've been struggling but working extremely hard to get that going. It was nice to see a few pucks go in."

Flames: Calgary began its four-game homestand in winning fashion last Thursday when it pulled out a 2-1 victory against the Los Angeles Kings. But the Flames suffered a setback two nights later when they blew a 3-2 lead en route to a 5-3 loss to the Nashville Predators.

"It was a game that we definitely feel we should have gotten two points out of," said captain Jarome Iginla, whose two second-period goals ended an eight-game drought. "We've got ourselves in a bit of a rut where in third periods we're not closing it out and finding ways to get points out of it and wins."

Who's Hot: Blues goalie Ty Conklin boasts a 2.27 goals-against average and possesses the third-highest save percentage (.931) in the League. … After going 19 games without a goal, Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf has tallies in back-to-back contests.

Injury Report: Blues defenseman Eric Brewer (back) is practicing, but it is unknown when he will return to action. Left wing D.J. King is out with a broken hand. … Flames defenseman Cory Sarich is out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury.

Stat Pack: David Perron leads St. Louis with 10 goals, but has only three tallies in his last 19 games. … Calgary scored once in two opportunities on the man advantage against the Preds on Saturday and has converted in four consecutive games.

Puck Drop: "The last time we played them they had won four in a row and were determined to win their fifth in a row on the road. We ran into a hornet's nest and didn't really handle it very well. They deserved to beat us there. But here I felt our team was really ready to go. It was significant to beat them like this after that last game." -- Blues coach Andy Murray after Monday's 7-2 win at Edmonton

Why do I get the feeling we'll be treated to a return of the lackluster performances we've seen all year? :facepalm:

No three-game win streak for us.

Tonight will be a tough game. If we can come out of this road trip with 7/8 points I would be very happy. We can win on the road, now we just have to see what we can do at home. We have a rough home stretch to end the calendar year on.

In franchise history we have made te western Canadian road trip 27 times, we have never beaten all three of them. I was gonna say we were gonna win, but I'm not as confident now that I hear Brewers playing so..
