ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- The St. Louis Blues try to extend their unbeaten streak to a season-high six games on Saturday when they open a four-game homestand against the Los Angeles Kings at the Savvis Center.

The Blues are without a loss in their last five games (4-0-1) after winning just two of their previous six. They have not had a six-game unbeaten streak since a 10-game winning streak from January 3-23, 2002.

St. Louis extended its winning streak to three games with a 3-2 overtime victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday.

Doug Weight scored with 8.7 seconds left in overtime after teammate Keith Tkachuk took out Blue Jackets defenseman Darryl Sydor to lift the Blues to their sixth win in nine games.

Jamal Mayers and Tkachuk scored for the Blues, who never trailed after scoring twice in a span of four minutes in the first period.

Tkachuk extended his points streak to five games and has three goals and four assists during that span.

Los Angeles avoided a three-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday.

Ziggy Palffy had two goals and an assist and Luc Robitaille and Jason Holland scored for the Kings, who have recorded a point in their last five games (3-0-2).

Kings goalie Roman Cechmanek left midway through the first period after bruising his hip and did not return.

Los Angeles has won its only two meetings with St. Louis this season, including a 1-0 victory here on November 15.
