Berglund's 2 Goals Lift Blues to Win
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Patrik Berglund scored twice and Jaroslav Halak had 23 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 6-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets Sunday night.

Chris Porter, Andy McDonald, Alexander Steen and Carlo Colaiacovo also had goals, with Chris Stewart, Matt D'Agostini and Vladimir Subotka each adding two assists for the Blues, who have earned points in five of six games.

R.J. Umberger, who tied the Blue Jackets record for consecutive games played with 243, had the lone goal for Columbus, which has lost three straight.

Both teams had long been eliminated from the Western Conference playoff picture.
The lopsided win was payback for the Blue Jackets' 8-1 victory over the Blues in November.
