ST. LOUIS (AP)--David Perron scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period and the St. Louis Blues ended a five-game home losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Chris Stewart had a first-period goal for the Blues, outscored 23-9 during an 0-4-1 slump. Perron beat Sergei Bobrovsky from the slot for his sixth goal at 9:51, also the Blues' first shot of the period.
