St. Louis Blues’ forward Patrik Berglund snapped a 10 game scoring drought with two goals and the Blues beat the Detroit Red Wings for the first time in three tries on Thurday night in a 4-3 final.
Berglund scored twice in a span of 4:20 in the first period to break a 1-1 tie. Erik Johnson and Matt D’Agostini also scored for the Blues. Johnson scored on a power play in the firts. It was his second goal of the season and first in 25 games. D’Agostini netted a breakaway goal to give St. Louis a 4-1 lead in the second period.
Jaroslav Halak stopped 35 shots to improve to 13-10-4. Halak had given up 11 goals on 67 shots in two losses to Detroit earlier this season. The Blues win denied goalie Chris Osgood his 400th career win.
