St. Louis Blues Schedule: Blues To Face Sidney Crosby In The Coming Week

The Blues face two winning and two losing teams in the coming week of NHL action.

The St. Louis Blues (10-7-2, 22 pts) will be in and out of home this week as they look to makeup ground on the Chicago Blackhawks (12-6-3, 27 pts), who lead the Central Division.

Here's a quick look at the upcoming Blues schedule:



The Blues will first host the Los Angeles Kings (10-7-3, 23 pts) on Tuesday. The Kings are coming off a deflating 4-5-1 stretch that saw them lose several games by the narrowest of margins. They are lead offensively by 24-year-old center Anze Kopitar who sports a team-best nine goals and 14 assists this season.

On Wednesday, the Blues head out to Pennsylvania to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins (11-6-3, 25 pts), who sit at second place in the Atlantic Division.

The Penguins will have phenom Sidney Crosby back from a severe head injury as he returns to game action Monday night, which is good for the Penguins as they are trying to shake off a rough patch, losing three of their last four contests. In Crosby's absence, left wing James Neal has led the Penguins in points with 12 goals and 8 assists.

Friday night, the Blues return home to play the Calgary Flames (8-9-1, 17 pts) after posting a stunning 5-2 win over the Blackhawks on Friday night. The Flames currently sit in the bottom of the Northwest Division.

Lastly, on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. CST, the Blues hit the road again, visiting the Columbus Blue Jackets (4-13-2, 10 pts). Columbus has lost 6 of their last 10 games and sport an NHL-least 10 points this season. But, as the Nashville Predators (10-5-4, 24 pts) discovered in their 4-3 OT loss to the predators last Saturday, the Blue Jackets cannot be overlooked.
