NHL Game Summary - St. Louis at Edmonton



(Monday, December 21st)

Final Score: St. Louis 7, Edmonton 2

Edmonton, AB (Sports Network) - Alex Steen had a goal and three assists as the St. Louis Blues clobbered the Edmonton Oilers, 7-2, at Rexall Place.

Andy McDonald scored twice while Patrik Berglund and Brad Boyes each had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who have won their past two games. Chris Mason made 23 saves in the win.

"To come in here and beat the Oilers was important for us," Blues head coach Andy Murray said. "We had a big win in Vancouver last night. We haven't been as good as we've wanted to be in back-to-back games, so it was gratifying to win tonight."

With the victory, the Blues snapped an eight-game losing streak against the Oilers.

Dustin Penner and Sam Gagner scored the goals for the Oilers, who have dropped their past four games. Devan Dubnyk was tagged for all seven goals on 26 shots.

"We just couldn't slow them down," the Oilers' Tom Gilbert said. "We didn't give our goalie a lot of help."

With the score tied at 2-2 in the second period, St. Louis erupted for three goals over 3:39 to take a 5-2 lead.

The first goal came on a lucky break. Skating on the power play, Boyes threw a shot on net from the left side that hit off the stick of Edmonton's Ladislav Smid and slid into the net at the 13:29 mark.

Exactly three minutes later, Berglund tipped in a Paul Kariya shot for a power-play goal and 39 seconds later, Jay McClement's snap shot beat Dubnyk to complete the burst.

McDonald's power-play goal 2:01 into the third period provided the Blues with a 6-2 margin, while Steen's goal with 3:59 left accounted for the final margin.

David Perron got St. Louis on the board 7:04 into the first period, but Gagner tied the game 2 1/2 minutes later on his eighth goal of the season.

McDonald scored his first goal of the game 2:52 into the second and Penner answered at the 5:18 mark of the middle stanza as his sharp angle shot from the right side got past Mason.
