Playing without Keith Tkachuk and Bill Guerin, who were both recently traded, the Blues still earned a 3-1 win over Vancouver Tuesday night in St. Louis.
Doug Weight picked up the slack left by the team’s top two scorers. His second-period goal off a Petr Cajanek pass gave St. Louis a 2-1 lead. Weight struck again for his eight goal of the season on a power play with just over two minutes left to play in the period.
Curtis Sanford just barely missed the shutout stopping 25 of 26 shots, filling in for the injured Manny Legace.
