Wild Vs. Blues: Minnesota Looks To End Losing In St. Louis

Minnesota need to find some offense to end losing streak.

The Minnesota Wild look for their first win in over two weeks when they visit the Scottrade Center to take on the St. Louis Blues.

The Wild have lost six consecutive games after a heartbreaking 4-3 overtime loss to Winnipeg on Thursday night. Minnesota has simply struggled to score goals, generating just seven goals in the six games prior to their 3-goal "outburst" against the Jets, which has the Wild sinking in the Western Conference standings with 59 points through 57 games.

The Blues are among the Western Conference elite, tucked in the draft behind the hot Detroit Red Wings with 77 points in their 57 games, winning five of their last six games. David Backes and T.J. Oshie lead the attack for the Blues.

St. Louis leads the season series 2-0-1 with Jaroslav Halak in the goal for each game, but Brian Elliot has been strong in the net for the Blues, winning his last four starts including Thursday's 5-1 win over the New York Islanders.

The puck drops at 1:00 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox Sports North.
