McDonald, Berglund Help Blues Bump off Canucks
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Andy McDonald and Patrik Berglund scored power-play goals to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night.

Alex Steen also scored for St. Louis, which won for the third time in the last 10 games. Vancouver lost for the second time in nine games.

St. Louis had scored just once in 12 previous power plays, but went 2 for 5 on Monday. Vancouver had killed off 36 straight penalties before Andy McDonald connected at 5:10 of the first period for a 1-0 lead.

Berglund added a man-advantage goal late in the second period to make it 3-1.
Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo had a 21-game regulation unbeaten string snapped. He came in with a 16-0-5 mark and had won his previous six starts.
