ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The simple act of scoring goals has become increasingly difficult for the struggling St. Louis Blues.

The Blues look to end a four-game losing streak when they play the fourth contest of a five-game road trip Friday against the Atlanta Thrashers.

Already last in the league in wins (10), points (25) and 29th in goals (105), St. Louis has been outscored, 15-2, in its four-game road losing streak. The Blues also have failed to convert recent power-play chances, scoring twice in 21 opportunities.

Rookie defenseman Kevin Dallman scored his first career goal for St. Louis in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Florida Panthers. The Blues have won five times in 20 road games this season.

While the Blues have had their problems, the Thrashers have thrived in the new year. They have won five of their last six games to move into second place in the Southeast Division.

Ilya Kovalchuk scored his 33rd goal in the third period and Marian Hossa added the clincher in Wednesday's shootout to give the Thrashers a 4-3 triumph over the Nashville Predators.

The teams have not faced each other since skating to a 1-1 tie January 28, 2004. St. Louis has won five of the seven all-time meetings.
