Rangers and Biron Beat Blues
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Martin Biron made 24 saves to beat the St. Louis Blues for the first time in 11 career games and Sean Avery scored the go-ahead goal in the second period of the New York Rangers' 2-1 victory on Saturday night.

Brandon Dubinsky had two assists _ also helping to set up Derek Stepan's goal _ for the Rangers, the only NHL team that hadn't beaten the Blues in regulation the last 10 seasons. New York leads the NHL with 31 road points (15-7-1). The Rangers earned a shootout victory at Dallas on Friday, and are 10-1 on the back end when playing on consecutive nights.

The Blues' Brad Winchester opened the scoring on a deflection early in the second period.
