ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings would appear to be the appropriate team to cement the longest losing streak in St. Louis Blues' franchise history.

The Blues attempt to avoid their team-record eighth consecutive defeat Sunday when they welcome the Red Wings to the Savvis Center.

St. Louis has endured a horrible first month to the season, ranking last in the league with only seven points and riding a seven-game losing streak that matches the worst stretch in team history.

The latest setback for the Blues came Friday with a 7-2 loss to Edmonton as Patrick Lalime allowed four goals on 15 shots over the first two periods to lose his fifth straight game.

Bryce Salvador and Lee Stempniak tallied for St. Louis, which last lost seven straight games from February 12-25, 1989.

The Red Wings likely are the last team the Blues want to see right now, as the Blues have gone just 1-11-1 in their last 13 meetings with their Central Division rival. They already have lost twice to the Red Wings this season.

Detroit is the league's only undefeated road team, having gone 6-0-0 away from Joe Louis Arena.

The Red Wings are coming off a 4-1 loss to Phoenix on Saturday in which they failed to record a point for just the second time in 15 games this season.

Tomas Holmstrom scored the lone goal for Detroit, which has dropped two straight games following a nine-game winning streak.
