Kings look for repeat performance vs. Blues

St. Louis (5-6-1) at Los Angeles (4-6-2) 10:30 EST

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Kings will look to top

the St. Louis Blues for the second time in just over two weeks

when the teams meet on Saturday.

After a 4-0 triumph that saw four different players tally, the

Kings dropped five straight games, four of which came on their

current seven-game homestand.

Brian Boyle and Anthony Stewart scored their first goals of the

season and the Kings held on for a 3-2 win Thursday against the

Florida Panthers.

In the previous matchup between the Western Conference foes,

Blues goaltender Manny Legace suffered a left hip flexor injury

after he fell on a piece of carpet in place for then

vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. He has returned to

practice, but has been out of action since.

St. Louis opened the season with wins in four of its first five

contests, but has fallen on hard times, dropping six of seven

and four straight.

The defense has been virtually non-existent for the Blues,

allowing 16 goals in their last three games.
