Patrik Berglund scored two power play goals, Ty Rattie scored his first NHL goal, and Scottie Upshall and David Backes scored for the Blues who beat the New Jersey Devils 5-2 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis. Brian Elliott made 22 saves, and Alexander Steen had two assists as the Blues won for the first time in regulation since December 22 at Boston.
The win was the 200th for coach Ken Hitchcock with St. Louis; he has 733 NHL victories.
Berglund played his sixth game of the season after missing the first 40 following offseason shoulder surgery. The Blues played without seven regulars who are out with injuries–Jake Allen, Jay Bouwmeester, Paul Stastny, Carl Gunnarsson, Magnus Paajarvi, Jaden Schwartz and Steve Ott.
