(Sports Network) - The Chicago Blackhawks will attempt to complete a two-game sweep of the St. Louis Blues when the Central Division rivals get together for the second time in three days tonight at the Scottrade Center.

Chicago used a four-goal blitz in the third period to capture a 4-1 victory over the Blues in Tuesday's opener.

Martin Havlat, Peter Bondra, Jeff Hamilton and Martin Lapointe all tallied for the Blackhawks, who broke a two-game slide. Tuomo Ruutu and Denis Arkhipov each finished with two assists.

The Blues outshot Chicago 39-26 on the night, but Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 38 St. Louis chances in a spectacular effort in goal.

Keith Tkachuk scored the lone goal for St. Louis, which had won five of six coming in to Tuesday's game. Manny Legace recorded just 22 saves in defeat.

Tuesday's triumph was the fourth straight for Chicago over the Blues, who took the first two of the six meetings between the clubs this season. The Blackhawks have now emerged victorious in four of their last six visits to St. Louis, including their two most recent trips.
