The St. Louis Blues’ four-game losing streak seemed to drag on forever after their first game back from the All-Star break was snowed out, but they scored five goals and Ty Conklin held up under the net for a 5-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers. Brad Boyes put the Blues on top for good, and T.J. Oshie, Alex Pietrangelo, Matt D’Agostini, and Brad Winchester added goals of their own for the Blues’ biggest offensive outburst since their January 6 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Andy McDonald, who was the Blues’ leading scorer before he missed 24 games after suffering a concussion, picked up an assist in his first game back. Oshie’s goal was his second since returning from a broken ankle.
The Blues hadn’t played since January 26, against the Calgary Flames, and they hadn’t won since January 18, when they beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1. With the win they improve to 23-20-7, although they still remain at the bottom of the Central Division.
Jaroslav Halak remains day-to-day following an injury he suffered before Tuesday’s postponed game.
