Perron's goal lifts Blues over Jackets

St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - David Perron scored in the third period to lift the St. Louis Blues over the Columbus Blue Jackets, 2-1, on Saturday.

Chris Stewart also scored for the Blues, who snapped a two-game skid. Jaroslav Halak made 18 saves.

The victory comes just one day after St. Louis placed standout rookie Vladimir Tarasenko on injured reserve. Tarasenko suffered a concussion during Wednesday's 1-0 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Matt Calvert scored the lone goal for the Blue Jackets, who fell to 1-4-0 on a six-game road trip. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 21-of-23 shots.

Columbus was without center Artem Anisimov, who suffered a head injury during Thursday's 3-2 win over the Red Wings. Anisimov was released from a Detroit hospital on Friday.
