from Scott Young and 35 saves from Curtis Sanford, who won his
fifth straight start.
Keith Tkachuk and rookie Jay McClement added a goal and an
assist apiece for St. Louis, which won despite a season-low 12
shots on net.
Calgary is in the midst of a seven-game homestand that was
divided by the Olympic break. The Flames won the first two

Defenseman Robyn Regehr scored the lone goal for the Flames, who
lost for just the ninth time in 29 home games to fall into a
tie with the Canucks atop the Northwest Division standings.
Calgary recorded a 3-2 overtime win over St. Louis on February
10 to snap a four-game home losing streak to the Blues.
