NHL: St. Louis 3, Dallas 1

Third-period goals by T.J. Oshie and Patrik Berglund Thursday night lifted the St. Louis Blues to a 3-1 decision over Dallas.

The Blues got 41 saves from Chris Mason while winning for the third time in four games. The Stars have dropped three in a row.

It was a 1-1 game after the opening period and it stayed that way until Oshie put a wrist shot past Marty Turco 6:50 into the third. Berglund followed 2:09 later by converting a cross-crease pass from David Perron.

Dallas was unable to take advantage of a double-minor penalty called on Andy McDonald for high sticking with 8:38 remaining in the third.

Mark Parrish hit the crossbar from the top of the crease with 1:50 to play.
