With just a few games remaining, the Blues are three points behind the Canucks in the Western Conference standings.

Going into tonight's game against the Detroit Red Wings, the St. Louis Blues are trailing the Vancouver Canucks by three points in the Western Conference. Vancouver has 109 points after extending its winning streak to seven games with a 5-4 shootout victory over Anaheim on Tuesday.

The Blues are holding steady with 106 points coming into the game against Detroit. With just three games remaining in the season for St. Louis, and Vancouver having just two left, the Blues will likely need some good fortune if they want to finish the season on top of the conference standings.

Finishing No. 2 in the West wouldn't be too bad, though. With a 48-21-10 record, the Blues are easily among the NHL's best teams and a legitimate contender to win the Stanley Cup Finals. St. Louis could use some momentum, though, considering it's won just three times in its past nine games.
