(AP) — Plenty has changed since the St. Louis Blues dominated the Detroit Red Wings in the teams’ season opener.

The Red Wings have taken two meetings since that poor effort and won a season-high three straight overall as they try to hand the visiting Blues a sixth consecutive defeat Wednesday night.

St. Louis (6-5-1) was spectacular in a 6-0 home victory over Detroit on Jan. 19, but the Blues have lost twice to the Red Wings (7-4-1) during their 0-4-1 slide. They’ll be trying to avoid dropping six in a row for the first time since a 0-5-2 skid Dec. 26, 2009-Jan. 7, 2010.

“It’s an easy time to beat everybody up,” St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. “We’re not playing with the sense of urgency collectively throughout our lineup necessary to win in the National Hockey League.”
