EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers were forced to wait 17 days for revenge on the St. Louis Blues.

The Oilers try to snap a three-game losing streak Wednesday when they skate with the resurgent Blues, who are beginning to rediscover their offense.

Edmonton fell in a shootout to St. Louis, 5-4, on February 12 to enter the Olympic break with three straight losses for the first time since January 12-16. The Oilers have not dropped four straight since a seven-game skid from October 11-25.

In the loss to the Blues, Georges Laraque tied the game with 2:23 left in regulation before Mike Morrison surrendered the lone goal of the shootout to rookie defenseman Dennis Wideman.

Lee Stempniak scored twice in regulation and Keith Tkachuk added a goal and an assist for St. Louis, which ranks near the bottom of the league with 153 goals but has managed at least four tallies in four of its last five games.

The Blues went 4-0-1 in that stretch but still are in danger of snapping a 25-year run of postseason berths - the longest active streak in professional sports.

Ryan Smyth scored two goals and Ales Hemsky set up a pair of tallies for the Oilers, who have allowed 20 goals over their last four contests.
