NHL: St. Louis 4, Vancouver 2
Goals from David Perron and Andy McDonald broke open a tie game in the third period Thursday and sent the St. Louis Blues to a 4-2 triumph over Vancouver.
The Blues began the night in 11th place in the Western Conference, but moved within one point of a spot among the top eight in the tightly-bunched playoff race with their third straight win.
Chris Mason stopped 21 of 23 shots for the Blues, giving him 10 victories in his last 15 starts.
Vancouver missed a chance to move within a point of Calgary for the lead in the Northwest Division. The Flames stayed three points in front of the Canucks despite losing to Columbus earlier in the evening.
