Even though the St. Louis Blues won’t make the playoffs for the second consecutive year, they still have something to play for - avoiding a sub-.500 record. Doug Weight had a goal and an assist to lead the Blues over the visiting Edmonton Oilers 5-2 last night, pushing the club’s record to within a game of .500.
The win snapped the Note’s three-game losing streak, and improved their season record to 32-33-12 with just five games remaining.
Jason Bacashihuastopped 16 of the 18 shots he saw in net, while Barret Jackman recorded three assists. St. Louis hosts Anaheim Saturday night.
