(Sports Network) - The St. Louis Blues put an end to a nagging three-game losing streak on Thursday, thanks to the most impressive performance of goaltender Manny Legace's brief tenure with the club.

The former Detroit netminder was brilliant in the Blues' 4-1 victory over Colorado at the Scottrade Center, turning away 44 of the 45 shots he faced. Legace, who signed with St. Louis as an offseason free agent, had been struggling with his new team. The 33-year-old entered the game with a lackluster 3.48 goals-against average and a save percentage of .870.

Legace isn't the only veteran on the Blues who's rebounding from a slow start, as forwards Doug Weight and Bill Guerin appear to have gotten untracked after rather unproductive beginnings.

Weight assisted on all four goals in Thursday's triumph, giving him nine helpers in the team's last five games. The 35-year-old center was held without a point for the first seven contests of the season.

Two of Weight's assists against the Avalanche set up goals by linemate Guerin, who's found the back of the net four times in his last five outings. The offseason free-agent addition now leads the Blues with six markers for the year.
