    NHL Game Summary - St. Louis at Columbus



    (Saturday, December 14th)

    Final Score: St. Louis 4, Columbus 3 (OT)

    Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - David Backes scored just 22 seconds into overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

    Vladimir Tarasenko added a pair of goals and Chris Stewart scored for the Blues, winners in three straight. Jaroslav Halak made 30 saves in the win.

    "We had the good and bad right throughout the game," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Every part of our game was bad and good. We had good early then bad for a long stretch, then we started to come on again."

    Artem Anisimov, Fedor Tyutin and Ryan Johansen each netted first period goals for the Blue Jackets, who lost for just the second time in six games. Mike McKenna made 27 saves in the setback.

    Columbus was 36-0-0 when leading after two periods dating back to last season.

    The Blues trailed 3-2 entering the final period, but Stewart was able to find the back of the net at 13:33 to tie the game. Brenden Morrow fired a shot from the point that bounced off McKenna, and Stewart was there to clean up the mess and tie things up.

    Just moments into the bonus session, Backes swiped the puck away from a Columbus player, shook a defender, then went top shelf to beat McKenna for the game-winner.

    "As soon as he made a move with his backhand, I went hard to the other side and the puck went back across, and I'm dead in the water," McKenna said. "It's frustrating. We were right there and definitely played well enough to win."

    Tarasenko opened up the scored 4:10 into the game. Tarasenko forced a turnover in the Columbus zone and flipped it over to Derek Roy, who ripped a shot from just inside the blue line off Jay Bouwmeester in front of the net. The puck ricocheted off Bouwmeester right to Tarasenko, who beat McKenna with a wrister.

    Anisimov netted the equalizer at 8:49 after wristing a feed from Blake Comeau past Halak. Comeau skated in along the right side and flipped the puck back to Anisimov, who was able to pot the disc from point-blank range.

    Tyutin put the Jackets up 2-1 after blasting a loose puck from the blue line through heavy traffic and into the net at 11:39, and two minutes later on the power play, Brandon Dubinsky found a streaking Johansen with a cross-ice feed, and Johansen quickly snapped it past Halak for a 3-1 edge.

    Tarasenko's second goal of the game came on the power play at 8:33 of the middle session. With Morrow blocking McKenna's view, Tarasenko blasted a shot from the point to cut the Blues' deficit to 3-2.

    Game Notes

    Morrow had two assists ... Bouwmeester notched his 21st assist of the season ... The Blues close a brief two-game road trip in Ottawa on Monday ... Columbus hosts Winnipeg on Monday before opening up a home-and-home with the Flyers in Philadelphia on Thursday.
