The Calgary Flames played like a team on a hot streak, but they were ultimately scorched by two St. Louis Blues.

Vladimir Tarasenko generated points on all three Blues goals and Brian Elliott made 36 saves in a 3-2 victory for the Blues, ending Calgary’s impressive winning streak at seven games.

The Blues generated a 2-0 lead in the first period and a 3-0 edge through two periods. Calgary nearly came back in the third period, and generated quite a shot edge (30-15) during the final 40 minutes of the contest.

Under many circumstances, that would be enough to help the Flames reel off yet another win.

Tarasenko is just THAT good, though, and you can’t help but wonder if Elliott is back to being the Blues’ best option in net once again.

(All of a sudden, the Blues are starting to creep up on the Stars for the Central Division lead …)
