The St. Louis Blues are an up-and-down squad right now, which is a hallmark of a young team. One night they commit a rash of penalties and come up short by three goals; the next game they play tough and battle for three periods and come out with a big win over the streaking LA Kings. Tonight they face the Detroit Red Wings again, an old Norris Division foe that has given them trouble for the past few years — and as recently as last week, in that aforementioned game they lost by three. This evening's match-up would be a fine time for the 'Note to begin another upswing. Game time is 7 p.m. at the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or www.scottradecenter.com). Tickets are $54.20 to $315.40 for this game, but visit www.stlblues.com for special promotions each day leading up to Christmas.
