ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- While the Columbus Blue Jackets and St. Louis Blues have two of the worst records in the league, they at least appear to be taking baby steps in the right direction.

When the teams face off Monday, the Blue Jackets will take the ice in search of their fourth win in five games, while the Blues are looking for their eighth victory in 12 contests.

Columbus, which has only 54 points on the season, posted its third win in four games Saturday with a 4-3 triumph over the Edmonton Oilers. Nikolai Zherdev and Sergei Fedorov each had a goal and two assists for the Blue Jackets, who rallied from a 2-0 deficit after one period.

St. Louis, which is tied with Chicago with a Western Conference-low 49 points, has gone 7-2-2 in its last 11 games.

However, the Blues were edged in a shootout, 2-1, by the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Petr Cajanek scored a third-period goal for St. Louis, which failed on all three of its attempts in the shootout.

The Blue Jackets lead the season series, 3-2.
