|McDonald Returns, Blues Defeat Oilers
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Andy McDonald had an assist in his first game back from a 24-game concussion-related absence and T.J. Oshie got his second goal in six games back from a broken ankle in the St. Louis Blues' 5-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.
Alex Steen had two assists in the Blues' first game in nine days due to a snow postponement at home on Tuesday, helping them move past a 2-8-2 January that dropped them to 13th in the Western Conference. Ty Conklin made 28 saves subbing for Jaroslav Halak, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury he sustained in practice.
Andrew Cogliano had two assists for the Oilers, who've lost 17 of their last 20. Edmonton rallied from three goals down on scores from Taylor Hall and Theo Peckham late in the second period before the Blues answered on Brad Winchester's goal off a rebound early in the third.
