    Blues won this off season deal when they picked up Brayden Schenn from the Philadelphia Flyers. Heading into Tuesday’s NHL action, the 26 year old centre sits tied with Phil Kessel for 11th in league scoring with 38 points although, technically, Schenn sits ahead of him with one more goal 16 than Kessel.  He’ll be a handful for Flames captain Mark Giordano who had two goals on Sunday night in a 6 1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.



    It seems that Jaromir Jagr is chasing NHL records on a daily basis. Against the Blues, the 45 year old living legend will suit up for his 1,731st contest which ties him with former teammate Ron Francis for third in regular season games played. Only two players have played more, and one of them is named Gordie Howe. If Jagr is able to stay healthy, he’ll make history in a Calgary Flames jersey by passing Mr. Hockey in all time games played 1,767 . This just in, Jagr won’t play tonight. Here’s why.


    The Flames have two more assignment until the Christmas holiday break which sees them enjoy five days between games. After playing the Blues, they’ll host the Montreal Canadiens on Friday before squaring off with the San Jose Sharks on Dec. 28. Calgary is coming off Sunday’s 6 1 win in Vancouver which saw five players get on the scoresheet and four players with multiple points. “Just the fact a lot of guys got on the scoreboard makes it nice,” said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan. “I watched the first two periods — we were OK. We broke it open at the end of the second, but until then, it was a fairly contested game. I thought we started well. I thought our game against Nashville was a solid game. We just didn’t get the win , and we needed to get a little hungrier in areas. I thought some of that hunger carried over, and we had a good push.”


    Without forward Jaden Schwartz sidelined with a right ankle injury , the Blues have been struggling to find someone who can score. Shut out for the fourth time this season, Sunday’s 4 0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets saw the Blues blanked for a second time in their past four games. During that four game stretch Curtis Lazar Jersey, they have one five on five goal and turned over the puck often. “It’s hard to create offence when you’re playing in your own zone,” Blues head coach Mike Yeo told Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic. “We’re giving up 40 plus shots a night right now, and that means the other team has the puck too much, so we have to be sharper.”


    The NHL holiday roster freeze officially began Tuesday night league wide. The halt ensures that players enjoy a Merry Christmas, at least until Dec. 28 at 12 01 a.m. local time when the freeze is lifted and general managers can wheel and deal after that. The roster freeze applies to all trades, loans and waiver placements — meaning that a team cannot trade a player, loan him to the minors or place him on waivers. It affects the active roster, injured reserve, non roster and injured non roster players.


    Blues LW Alex Steen has gone 15 straight games without a goal … D Alex Pietrangelo and C Kyle Brodziak returned from injuries on Sunday against the Jets … The Blues have a 7 2 record against Canadian teams this season, having lost 7 4 to the Flames on Nov. 13 … Wednesday’s game is the third and final match up between the teams … The Blues are amid a stretch that sees them play 10 games in 17 days leading into Christmas … The St. Louis squad is 16 2 1 in games it scores first.
