(Sports Network) - The Columbus Blue Jackets aim for their first three-game winning streak of the season tonight, when they visit the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center.

The Blue Jackets have posted back-to-back victories in Edmonton and Colorado this week and can now win three straight for the first time since a six-game stretch from March 24-April 3 of last season.

Columbus was last in action Tuesday against the Avalanche. Fredrik Norrena made 42 saves to post his second consecutive shutout, leading the Blue Jackets to a 3-0 win at the Pepsi Center.

Anson Carter had a goal and an assist and Jason Chimera and Fredrik Modin each added a goal for the Blue Jackets. This was the first time Columbus defeated Colorado in regulation in the all-time series between these teams. Colorado had a 20-1-1 (one tie) record against Columbus coming into the game with the only loss coming in overtime on February 28, 2004.

Norrena also made 21 saves on Saturday during his club's 4-0 win over Edmonton.

Tonight marks the finale of a five-game road trip for the Blue Jackets, who are just 4-9-0 away from Columbus this year.

Meanwhile, the Blues have dropped six straight games (0-5-1) and the last two setbacks came in a home-and-home series with Detroit. The Red Wings won, 5-1, in St. Louis on Tuesday and then earned an overtime victory in the return trip to Motown on Thursday. Pavel Datsyuk scored the game-winning goal with 1:37 left in OT as Detroit erased an early three-goal deficit to beat the Blues, 4-3.
