DETROIT (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings will be glad to see the St. Louis Blues when the teams hook up Saturday at Joe Louis Arena.

The Red Wings look to end a three-game losing streak by continuing their dominance over the Blues, who seek back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Detroit opened its season with 15 wins in its first 18 games only to come back to earth over the last week. The Red Wings have dropped their last three contests - all on the road - including Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to Edmonton.

After surrendering four straight goals in the third period, the Red Wings scored twice in the final 3 1/2 minutes of regulation to tie it, only to surrender the game-winner 33 seconds into overtime.

Steve Yzerman had a goal and an assist and Pavel Datsyuk and Brendan Shanahan added power-play goals for Detroit, which has a good chance to get back on the winning track Saturday.

The Red Wings already have beaten the Blues three times this season and have lost just once in their last 14 meetings. Tomas Holmstrom scored two goals and added an assist in Detroit's 4-1 victory over St. Louis in the last meeting November 6.

The Blues snapped their franchise-record 11-game losing streak Wednesday with a 2-0 victory over Columbus. Lee Stempniak had a goal and an assist and Curtis Sanford saved 36 shots for the shutout.
