|Steen, Perron Score PP Goals as Blues top Stars
|DALLAS (AP) -- Alex Steen and David Perron scored power-play goals, Jaroslav Halek stopped 33 shots, and the playoff-bound St. Louis Blues beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Saturday night in the regular-season finale for both teams.
Kris Russell added an even-strength goal for the Central Division-champion Blues, who snapped a season-worst four-game losing streak (0-2-2) to finish with 109 points, the most since they had 114 in 1999-2000.
St. Louis will await the results of the Edmonton-Vancouver and Los Angeles-San Jose games to learn whether it will earn the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. The Canucks came into Saturday's games with 109 points and will win the Presidents' Trophy with a win over the Oilers.
Rookies Ryan Garbutt and Philip Larsen scored in the game's final 11 minutes for the Stars.
