The grim streak of bad breaks and injuries seem to have ceased for the St. Louis Blues, and it couldnt have come at a better time. Games are being won through determination against skilled teams (theyve beaten Atlanta, Detroit and Chicago in order), guys like David Backes and Cam Janssen are doing whatever it takes to win (Cams fight against the Blackhawks gargantuan John Scott is a defining moment in this season) and T.J. Oshies return is imminent. (Now if we could just get David Perron and his magic hands back on the ice.) The young team is figuring out how it works, and how to win. Tonight at 8 p.m. at Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or www.scottradecenter.com) they take on the Phoenix Coyotes. Tickets are $18.35 to $161.75, and dont forget about those all-you-can-eat seats, which are $37.80.
