The St. Louis Blues' winning streak is over - and for at least one start, so is rookie Jake Allen's run in net.
Veteran goaltender Jaroslav Halak might be the change the Blues need to get back on track.
Halak will try to help St. Louis win its fifth straight over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.
With the Blues (16-11-2) going for a fourth consecutive victory, Allen, who has at least for now taken over the No. 1 job from Halak and Brian Elliott, allowed three second-period goals in Tuesday's 3-2 loss at Vancouver.
"We played a good 40 minutes, but the other 20 minutes cost us the game,'' said center Patrik Berglund, who tied Chris Stewart for the team lead with his 14th goal.
Coach Ken Hitchcock deciding to give Halak his first start in five games could give the Blues their best chance to win on Saturday. He has been in net each time during St. Louis' winning streak over Edmonton, posting a 1.75 goals-against average, and stopped 15 shots in a 4-2 home win March 1.
