seek to post their longest winning streak i
(SportsNetwork.com) - The St. Louis Blues seek to post their longest winning streak in 12 years on Saturday night as they play host to the Nashville Predators. The Blues took the opener of a five-game homestand 4-3 over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night, completing a home-and-home sweep to push their overall winning streak to seven in a row. Jake Allen came into the contest having posted back-to-back shutouts -- 2-0 versus Anaheim on Oct. 30 and a 26-save effort in New Jersey on Tuesday -- and kept the Devils off the scoreboard until finally letting one in with 3:25 to play. That snapped Allens shutout streak at a franchise rookie-record 184 minutes and 38 seconds, though he ended up allowing three goals and making 24 saves. They really pushed us hard. We pushed hard back in the third, Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock said. Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and an assist each, with Tarasenko lighting the lamp for a fourth game in a row and for the eight time in his past six games. Alexander Steen and David Backes added power-play markers for the hosts. The Blues also won seven straight games last season, but have not won eight in a row since a nine-game run from Oct. 15-Nov. 5, 2002. Despite Allens recent success, Hitchcock will go back to starter Brian Elliott tonight. That isnt a terrible choice as Elliott is 5-2-0 with a 1.81 goals against average, .929 save percentage and two shutouts in seven prior meetings, including six starts. St. Louis has won six in a row and 10 of its last 11 versus Nashville, which is wrapping a six-game road trip tonight. The Preds will go at least .500 on the swing as Thursdays win over Dallas pushed them to 3-2-0 during the trek. Matt Cullen scored the game-winner with 6:13 to play in regulation for a 3-2 decision. Craig Smith and Filip Forsberg added power-play goals, while Mattias Ekholm and Derek Roy had two assists each. Forsberg has a goal in three straight games, with four tallies in total over that span. Pekka Rinne turned aside 33 shots in the win. He made some big saves, said Preds coach Peter Laviolette. They came out charging and he made some real big saves. With Nashville idle until Tuesday following this contest, Laviolette may stick without his workhorse in Rinne tonight. The netminder is 13-11-4 with a 2.09 GAA and .927 save percentage in 28 lifetime meetings with the Blues.

Ellis then took the clock down but was off the mark on a right elbow jumper at the buzzer. Rondo nailed a right wing triple with the shot clock running down with 1:14 remaining in overtime to stake the Mavs to a 104-102 advantage.
