Blues seek third straight victory vs. Senators

Ottawa (16-22-7) at St. Louis (19-23-4), 8:30 p.m. EST

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- The St. Louis Blues ended the first half

of the season on a high note and hope to continue that trend as

they begin their schedule following the All-Star break.

Looking to notch their first three-game winning streak in over

two months, the Blues host the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

St. Louis has the fewest points in the Western Conference, and

having seven players on the shelf - including Paul Kariya, Andy

McDonald, and defensemen Eric Brewer and Erik Johnson - has not

helped.

Yet the Blues, who are coming off a 2-0 victory over the Chicago

Blackhawks on January 21, have won three of four and will play

five of their next seven games at home.

They have also gotten at least a point in four straight games

for the first time since November 14-25, 2008.

Ottawa, which has scored two or fewer goals in 25 of 45 games

this season, had won three in a row before falling, 4-1, to the

torrid New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

The Senators may count on rookie netminder Brian Elliott to make

his eighth consecutive start as they begin a three-game road

trip.
