CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) - The Calgary Flames are playing their best hockey of the season, riding a four-game winning streak that began with a victory against the St. Louis Blues.

The Flames try to defeat the Blues for the second time in 11 days when the teams face off at Pengrowth Saddledome on Tuesday.

Calgary posted a 3-2 triumph over St. Louis on November 4 as Jarome Iginla scored the decisive power-play goal with 4:27 remaining. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Flames, who since have won their last four contests by a combined score of 12-5.

Miikka Kiprusoff has been the winning goaltender in each contest, including Saturday's 3-2 victory over Vancouver. Calgary rallied from an early 2-0 deficit behind 28 saves from Kiprusoff and goals from Iginla, defenseman Rhett Warrener and Kristian Huselius.

The Blues are coming off a 5-3 triumph vs. Edmonton on Sunday that broke their three-game losing streak. They received a pair of goals from Martin Rucinsky and a tally and an assist from Lee Stempniak.

St. Louis, which is beginning a five-game road trip Tuesday, is just 1-4-1 away from home this season.
