(Sports Network) - The St. Louis Blues seek their third consecutive win tonight when they welcome the Phoenix Coyotes to the Scottrade Center.

The mini spurt comes after the club lost its first three matches. On Saturday, Radek Dvorak's third-period goal proved to be the game winner as St. Louis defeated Chicago, 4-3, in the Gateway City.

Dvorak also added an assist and Lee Stempniak had two helpers for the Blues, while Manny Legace stopped 19-of-22 shots in net.

Jamie Rivers, Bill Guerin and Martin Rucinsky had the other goals in the victory, as the Blues rallied from a 2-0 deficit.

St. Louis' opening three losses were on the road out West, while the winning streak has coincided with the beginning of a four-game homestand. The Blues will finish the current set on Friday against Vancouver.

Phoenix, meanwhile, has lost the last four contests after beginning its season with a win. On Saturday the Coyotes dropped a 4-1 tilt in Nashville, as Paul Kariya and Scott Hartnell each posted a goal and an assist to lift the Predators to their first victory of the campaign.
