in the NHL at eight games (three goals, eight as­sists). “We were pa­tient there,” Per­ron said. “We were able to come back and get the two points so it’s good.” The Blues im­proved to 6-1-0 over their past seven games. St. Louis has won its last five home games and is 8-0-2 in the last 10 at Scot­trade Cen­ter. The Blues got on the score­board first with 6:24 left in the first pe­riod when Fab­bri took a pass from Robert Bor­tuzzo in the right cir­cle and sent a low wrist shot past Niemi. It was Fab­bri’s first goal in six games.

Pi­etrangelo poked in a loose puck un­der the Niemi’s pad at 4:17 of the sec­ond pe­riod for a power-play goal to make it 2-0. Pa­trick Ber­glund redi­rected the shot by Pi­etrangelo but Niemi never com­pletely cov­ered it. Charg­ing the net, Pi­etrangelo pounced and knocked it in.

“We were all whack­ing away at it,” Pi­etrangelo said. “Some­body has to score it. I do what I can. I 14 13 12 11 9 10 7 7 9 10 10 8 10 9 1 1 0 1 4 2 5 51 70 53 57 66 54 39

was just hop­ing it was me. I’ll take it. Ev­ery­body loves to score.”

Dal­las cut the lead in half with 3:39 left in the sec­ond when Olek­siak beat Allen with a wrist shot from the right cir­cle. Olek­siak skated around Per­ron and Pi­etrangelo to score.

The goal im­pressed Dal­las coach Lindy Ruff. “He scores two goals. The first one is one you can save for a life­time and I think it was a turn­ing point for us,” Ruff said. “It gave us some be­lief that we can get back into the game.”

The Stars tied it on a power play when Benn, who also had two as­sists, scored 1:47 into the third. It was his third goal in his last five games. St. Louis had two power-play op­por­tu­ni­ties in the third pe­riod and did not put a shot on goal.This is the sec­ond of four meet­ings be­tween the Stars and Blues this sea­son. Dal­las won the first meet­ing, 6-2, in Dal­las on Nov. 3. — AP
