Starting today, December 5, the St. Louis Blues play five games in seven nights including two sets of back to back games.  The first three games are at home starting with the Flames and Coyotes in back-to-back games.  They get one day's rest before the Predators visit and then they play back-to-back games on the road in Anaheim and Los Angeles.  Playing five games in a one week time doesn't happen very often – only twelve times during the regular season although it happens to the Blues twice.
