Last game for a week. Savor it up.

BLUES (5-1-0) at JETS (3-4-0)

TV: FS-MW, TSN-JETS

Season series: This is the first of five games between the St. Louis Blues and Winnipeg Jets. The Jets will travel to St. Louis on Oct. 29. The Blues beat the Jets 3-2 in a shootout Feb. 25, 2012, in the team's most recent meeting, when the Jets were still in the Eastern Conference.

Big story: The Blues are looking to keep pace with the Central Division-leading Colorado Avalanche, who lead second-place St. Louis by two points. The Jets will try to get out of the Central cellar.

Team Scope:

Blues: St. Louis bounced back from its first loss of the season, a 6-2 thrashing by the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout Thursday night. Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was pleased the way his team responded to the loss to the Sharks and won its first road game after beginning the season with five in a row at home.

"Overall, our whole game was a lot better," he said. "It was kind of where it needed to be to play against teams like this. Obviously, against San Jose, we didn't and we've got to learn from it. Tonight was better."

Jets: Winnipeg lost 3-0 at MTS Centre to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night. The Jets are off to a 1-2-0 start on their six-game homestand. Captain Andrew Ladd was disappointed by his team's slow start on home ice in the shutout loss to Montreal. "It's on each and every one of us individually to prepare for the game and make sure we're ready for puck drop," he told the Winnipeg Free Press. "There's absolutely no excuse to not be ready once that game is going."

Who's hot: Evander Kane scored twice for the Jets in their 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday. He has three goals and five points in seven games. … David Backes scored again for the Blues at Chicago; he has goals in three of his past four games, with four goals in that span. Alexander Steen has five goals for the Blues.

Injury report: St. Louis reports no injuries, though forward Maxim Lapierre is suspended for a hit on San Jose's Dan Boyle in Tuesday's game and will have a hearing Friday. … Kane is day-to-day with a right-leg injury sustained during practice Wednesday. The Jets have placed right wing Chris Thorburn (upper body) on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 4.

At the beginning of this week, I was afraid we might be looking at 4-3 by the end of the week. I figured the Sharks would destroy us (as they did) and I was nervous about the Chicago game in their house and then Winnipeg the next night and maybe a little bit of fatigue after two hard games. 4-3 is, thankfully, not possible. But, I'm expecting a bit of a letdown tonight. 5-2 in the standings, 4-2 on the scoreboard. #4 an empty netter.

The center ice free preview is done, so I was unable to watch any of this game which appears to be a good thing given what transpired at the end of regulation. These guys clearly have some things to work on in their week off.

Was a very annoying game.
Makes it even worse that we have to wait until Friday to see them play again.
Going to stab the idiots who made the schedule

Weak ass effort against a weak team. 4 posts in 1 period though is bad luck....but still. It's the Jets. There were stretches of flat out uninspired play and that's really not cool in only the 7th game of the season. Nobody better even start on the "2nd game in as many nights" nonsense either. It's the 7th game of the season, they're professional athletes, they should be able to handle it. I guess they have a week to "rest up" now. :roll:

Hard to complain about a 5-1-1 record, but they need to keep pushing regardless of who they're playing. It's still 2 points they absolutely should have had given the position they were in in the 3rd period.

They shouldnt be happy with a 3-1 lead.
They should be out there trying to get to 10.
