St. Louis has been a nightmare for the Calgary Flames with seven consecutive defeats. However, perhaps the worm has turned with the Flames ending the misery with a 4-1 victory at the Blues on Tuesday night. The balanced Calgary attack featured goals from Deryk Enggelland and Dennis Wideman with Sam Bennett and Johnny Gaudreau also soring and adding assists while former Blues goalie Brian Elliott picked up the win with 23 saves. St. Louis got on the scoreboard courtesy of Kevin Shattenkirk on a 5-on-3 power play but the Blues needed more between the pipes with Carter Hutton’s 26 stops coming up well short
