Blues Host Canadiens

The Blues look to return to their winning ways tonight when they host the Montreal Canadiens. St. Louis goaltender Jaroslav Halak will start against his former team, and captain David Backes will miss his second-straight game after suffering an upper body injury on Monday. The Blues are 22-7-and-4 and hope to snap a two-game skid. The 21-12-and-3 Canadiens are 2nd in the Atlantic Division.
