(Sports Network) - The St. Louis Blues aim for their first win in nearly a month, as they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins for tonight's clash at Mellon Arena.

The Blues have dropped 11 straight games (0-8-3) and haven't tasted victory since defeating Detroit in a shootout back on November 24. St. Louis is also 0-2-2 since Andy Murray took over head coaching duties for the fired Mike Kitchen.

The last two setbacks for the Blues came in a home-and-home sweep against Nashville. St. Louis dropped a 3-2 shootout decision on Saturday and lost an overtime game the following day.

On Sunday, Dan Hamhuis' goal late in the third period tied the game and Kimmo Timonen scored the game-winner in OT as Nashville rallied to beat St. Louis, 2-1.

With the Blues holding a 1-0 lead for most of the contest, St. Louis goaltender Manny Legace appeared to be heading to a well deserved shutout. However, with 4:19 left in the third period, Hamhuis redirected David Legwand's shot from the right point past Legace to tie the game at 1-1.

In the extra session, Keith Tkachuk was whistled for high-sticking and the Predators were able to take advantage. Paul Kariya found Timonen at the left circle and his slap shot beat Legace stick-side for the game-winner.

Lee Stempniak scored the lone goal for the Blues, who are last in the Western Conference with just 20 points this year.
