CHICAGO (Ticker) - Even a week off could not help the languishing Chicago Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks, who have lost eight straight games, look for an elusive victory when they host the Central Division rival St. Louis Blues on Friday.

Due to a scheduling quirk, the Blackhawks had six days off, but it did not help as they dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to the New Jersey Devils on Thursday.

Tuomo Ruutu scored the lone goal for Chicago, which has only 11 in the losing streak. Rene Bourque and Mikael Holmqvist had chances in the shootout but were stopped by New Jersey netminder Martin Brodeur.

Brian Boucher, who has struggled while filling in for the injured Nikolai Khabibulin, stopped 26 shots.

The Blues have not been that great lately either, going 1-4-1 in their last six.

Bill Guerin and Keith Tkachuk scored St. Louis' goals in its 4-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.

Manny Legace had a tough night in stopping only 17-of-21 shots before being replaced by Curtis Sanford.
