|Blues End Losing Streak With Win Over Anaheim
|ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Andy McDonald had two goals and an assist, and the St. Louis Blues ended a three-game losing streak with a 5-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.
Ty Conklin made 26 saves to earn his first shutout of the season and the 11th of his NHL career.
After consecutive wins over Detroit in Sweden two weeks ago, the Blues had lost three straight back in North America, going 0-10 on the power play.
St. Louis quickly reversed the trend against the Ducks. Patrick Berglund and Carlo Colaiacovo scored man-advantage goals for a 2-0 lead early in the second period.
McDonald scored two even-strength goals and T.J. Oshie added one. Brad Boyes and Erik Johnson each had two assists.
