EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The St. Louis Blues try to generate some offense and halt a season-high seven-game winless skid Wednesday night when they visit Rexall Place to face the Edmonton Oilers.

St. Louis has scored just seven goals in going 0-6-1 in its last seven contests. The Blues have not scored more than two goals since a 5-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on January 15.

On Monday, the Blues could not get any of their 24 shots past Dwayne Roloson as they were blanked, 4-0, by the Minnesota Wild. Chris Osgood allowed three goals on just nine shots and was replaced by Reinhard Divis 6:20 into the second period.

Osgood fell to 18-16-5 this season and is 14-8-3 lifetime against the Oilers. He replaced Brent Johnson with 5:48 left in the first period here on October 21 and made 17 saves to get the win as the Blues posted a 6-4 victory.

Former Oiler Doug Weight scored St. Louis' first goal in that contest and set up Petr Cajanek for the game-winner with 1:47 left in the second. Weight has two goals and four assists in eight career games vs. Edmonton.

The Oilers have won two of their last three games after Monday's 2-1 overtime victory over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Rookie Jarret Stoll scored 36 seconds into overtime as the Oilers improved to 2-1 on their five-game homestand and 13-12-3 at Rexall Place this season.

Edmonton center Adam Oates, who spent parts of three seasons with the Blues, needs one more point to pass Dale Hawerchuk (1,409) and take over sole possession of 14th place on the all-time points list.

The Oilers are 22-17-4 all time against the Blues and the teams meet twice in St. Louis in March.
