Sergei Fedorov, who leads Detroit with 71 points, reached the 30-goal plateau for the ninth time in his career with a pair of tallies against the Penguins. He trails Brett Hull by three goals for the team lead.
Hull, who recorded a hat trick in the win over the Senators, has 712 goals in his career, five shy of tying Phil Esposito for fourth on the all-time list. The 38-year-old Hull, who spent parts of 11 seasons with the Blues, has recorded a goal and an assist in three games against his former club this season.
Detroit is tied with the Dallas Stars for the top spot in the Western Conference.
The Blues are coming off an overtime victory over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks on Thursday and are five points behind the Red Wings with eight games remaining after Saturday’s contest. Pavol Demitra picked up a rebound of defenseman Al MacInnis’ shot to the left of Martin Gerber and stickhandled around the goaltender before scoring from behind the goal line at 2:22 of overtime to give the Blues a 3-2 win Thursday.
Demitra’s 84 points are sixth in the NHL.
The Blues have gone 4-0-1 since a 7-2 defeat to the Red Wings on March 7. Detroit has won all three meetings this season, including a 4-3 overtime triumph on December 8.
