The Blues made many fans forget about their recent road woes and also coach Ken Hitchcock's decision to start goaltender Jaroslav Halak following Brian Elliott's shutout Saturday. The club made the Bell Center feel like home with a 3-0 victory Tuesday night over Montreal, and with Halak's 19-save performance, the two goalies have blanked opponents in back-to-back games. Their winning streak matches a season-high four games, and the team will try to establish a new high when it hosts Vancouver on Thursday night in what is shaping up to be a showdown. The Canucks edged Tampa Bay Tuesday 5-4 in a shootout to remain in first place in the Western Conference with 57 points, two points ahead of the No. 2 Blues.
Happy homecoming for Halak
