|ST LOUIS: |
LAST SEASON: 49-22-11, 109 points, Central Division championship. Lost to Los Angeles 4-0 in second round.
COACH: Ken Hitchcock, 1st full season with Blues, 43-15-11; 16th overall, 576-365-169 in NHL.
ADDED: RW Vladimir Tarasenko, LW Jaden Schwartz, D Jeff Woywitka, D Colin White.
LOST: RW B.J. Crombeen, D Kent Huskins (unsigned unrestricted free agent).
PLAYER TO WATCH: Shifty, inventive LW David Perron has potential to lift a grinding offense that ranked in the bottom third of the NHL after scoring 42 points in 57 last season after recovering from concussion that sidelined him a full season.
OUTLOOK: The Blues stood pat after second-best point total in franchise history, banking on continued development of youthful roster, and figure to be among top teams in Western Conference. Hitchcock was NHL coach of year, elevating play across the board of roster that was 7-7 before he replaced Davis Payne.
LAST SEASON: 37-29-16, 90 points. Missed playoffs by finishing ninth in Western Conference.
COACH: Bob Hartley, first season.
ADDED: D Dennis Wideman, LW Jiri Hudler, C Roman Cervenka.
LOST: C Olli Jokinen, RW David Ross, D Scott Hannan, RW Guillaume Desbiens, RW Tom Kostopoulous.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Alex Tanguay, who played for Hartley a decade ago in Colorado, will be more familiar with the coach than his teammates. If he can click on the top line with Jarome Iginla, the Flames may have a puncher's chance.
OUTLOOK: Despite the addition of Cervenka, the Flames should be weak enough on defense to keep G Miikka Kiprusoff busy. If Tanguay and other forwards can click with Iginla, they may have a chance at catching lightning in a bottle, but in a tough division with the formidable Avalanche and Canucks, they would do well to nick the last playoff spot.

*Blues-Flames Preview* ======================
By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer
St. Louis (17-11-2) at Calgary (11-14-4), 8:00 p.m. EDT
Chris Stewart is one of the reasons behind the St. Louis Blues' surge.
A meeting with the last-place Calgary Flames would appear to be a good way to keep it that way.
Stewart looks to continue his scoring barrage and help the Blues to their longest winning streak against the Flames in over nine years Sunday night.
Stewart's team-leading 15 goals match his total from last season, while his 29 points are one shy. The right wing has eight goals and seven assists over the past nine games.
The Blues (17-11-2) have certainly capitalized on that, winning six of eight while outscoring opponents 26-16.
Stewart found the net again Saturday, scoring in the opening 3:20 as St. Louis went on to a 3-0 win at Edmonton. That came four days after he was a minus-3 and was kept off the scoresheet in a 3-2 defeat at Vancouver to open this three-game trip.
The Blues have won three in a row against Calgary (11-14-4), winning two on the road including a 5-2 victory Feb. 15, when they jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first period. They haven't put together a longer winning streak in the series since reeling off six straight from Oct. 26, 2002-Feb. 5, 2004.
Stewart, though, hasn't been very effective against the Flames. He had an assist in the most recent matchup, giving him two points in his past nine meetings.
David Perron sored twice at Calgary last month, but he has only four goals in 16 games since and none in the past four.
Getting on the Flames early again would be ideal since they're 2-9-3 after surrendering the first goal.
While Calgary is tied with Colorado for last in the Western Conference, the team should be thrilled to return home.
The Flames have outscored opponents 27-13 during six straight wins there, their longest run at Scotiabank Saddledome since capturing eight in a row from Dec. 6, 2011-Jan. 12, 2012.
That success has been undermined by Calgary's dismal the road, where the team has lost a franchise-record nine in a row.
The Flames capped a winless three-game trip Friday with a sloppy performance in a 5-1 defeat at Columbus.
"It was just like deja vu," coach Bob Hartley said of the giveaways and mistakes that cost his club. "There were turnovers in our zone and pucks in our net. There's not much more to say."
Curtis Glencross scored his team-leading 13th goal against the Blue Jackets. The left wing has scored 11 of those goals and notched 15 of his 21 points at home, including six goals and three assists during a five-game scoring streak.
Glencross has scored three goals and set up two others in his past five matchups against the Blues.
