Conference powers Lightning, Blues set to tangle

ST. LOUIS -- The Eastern Conference-leading Tampa Bay Lightning and West-best St. Louis Blues meet on Tuesday night at Scottrade Center to start what both coaches know will be a challenging week for their respective teams.

The Lightning and Blues are tied atop the league standings with 44 points and both come into the game riding four-game winning streaks.

Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper's team won those four games at home, and he knows the Lightning have to find a way to transfer their home success to the road, where they lost three of four games on their last trip.
