Oilers hit road to take on Blues

Edmonton (25-22-3) at St. Louis (21-24-5) 8:30 p.m. EST

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- After playing just three road games in the

month of January, the Edmonton Oilers will begin a span of seven

away games in their next eight contests with a visit to the St.

Louis Blues on Thursday.

The Oilers will hope to avoid a three-game losing streak and

gain ground in the crowded bottom half of the Western Conference

standings that have 10 points separating the last-Blues and

fifth-place Anaheim.

A visit to St. Louis could be a good start to the two-week

stretch for Edmonton, which has won its last five matchups with

the Central Division foe.

A goal-scoring draught has led Edmonton to three losses in its

last four since the All-Star break, including a pair of one-goal

performances in losses to Nashville and Chicago.

Ethan Moreau scored the first goal of the game but the

Blackhawks scored three unanswered against Dwayne Roloson in

skating to a 3-1 win Tuesday.

The Oilers will be without defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky, who

left Tuesday's game in the third period with a dislocated


"He'll be out a period of time," Edmonton coach Craig MacTavish

said. "I don't even want to guess."

The Blues are 4-1-1 in their last five games and are coming off

a 4-2 win at Columbus on Tuesday.

Brad Boyes recorded two goals and an assist and Jay McClement

added both an even-strength and empty-net goal in the win.
