(Sports Network) - When the St. Louis Blues dropped three consecutive games to open their 2006-07 season, comparisons of last year's nightmare 57-point campaign could easily be drawn.
All three of those contests came on the road, however, and the Blues have enjoyed considerably better results during its current four-game homestand.
In the team's home opener on October 12, St. Louis scored two late goals to force overtime before Lee Stempniak's shootout tally lifted the Blues to a thrilling 3-2 victory over Boston. St. Louis had some more third-period magic two days later, as Radek Dvorak snapped a wrist shot past Chicago's Brian Boucher with 6:18 left to play to give the hosts a 4-3 decision.
The Blues' win streak came to a close with Tuesday's 5-2 defeat to Phoenix, but the recent run shows the club, which made a number of significant offseason moves, looks to be headed in the right direction.
