|WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- David Perron scored the winning goal in the shootout to lift the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.
Perron moved in on Chris Mason in the fourth round and roofed a backhander, ruining the Jets' rally from a two-goal deficit.
Perron and David Backes scored in regulation for St. Louis, which led 2-0 after the opening period despite getting outshot 16-6. Jaroslav Halak made 39 saves to pick up the win.
Mason made 14 stops for the Jets, who host the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.
