Turgeon and Young scored 1:48 apart during a third-period flurry as the Stars ended a five-game road winless streak against the Blues with a 4-2 victory.
Brenden Morrow had the other goal in the final period for Dallas, which bounced back from Friday’s 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay that ended its 12-game unbeaten streak.
“It was big for a lot of reasons,” Young said. “We didn’t play that well last night. St. Louis is one of the top teams in the league, right behind us in the standings, and we’re on the road in a place that’s tough to win. A lot of reasons this is a big win.”
Turgeon spent parts of five seasons with St. Louis before signing with the Stars as a free agent in July 2001. With 7:54 remaining, he wristed a shot from just below the goal line on the left side. It struck goaltender Brent Johnson on the right pad and caromed into the net for Turgeon’s 12th goal.
“Sometimes you have to shoot at the net and you just never know,” Turgeon said. “It was a big goal, big win, big comeback. Obviously, a good feeling to win.”
“We played a heckuva game, outplayed them in every area,” Johnson said. “Soft goals on myself, couldn’t bail these guys out when I needed to. I didn’t play the game I should have against Dallas.”
Young signed with Dallas in July 2002 after four seasons in St. Louis. He broke down the right side on a 2-on-1, got a pass from Mike Modano and wristed a shot from low in the right faceoff circle by Johnson’s glove for his 11th goal.
“I’d be lying if I didn’t say it felt a little extra special because I played here for four years,” Young said. “It feels good. I’m sure it feels good for Pierre, too.”
The line of Turgeon, Young and Jason Arnott has accounted for 12 of the Stars’ 28 game-winning goals.
“It’s good for those guys because they have great memories here, a lot of friends here,” Dallas coach Dave Tippett said. “Nice to see them play well in this building.”
Pavol Demitra had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who are winless in their last three games after winning five of seven.
“Looked like it was going to be one of our best efforts, but it ended up looking like garbage,” St. Louis coach Joel Quenneville said.
Demitra was credited with a fluke goal 10:16 into the first period. After a shot by Keith Tkachuk was stopped, Arnott tried to clear the puck from in front of the net but backhanded it off Demitra and past goalie Marty Turco.
Rookie defenseman John Erskine tied it less than three minutes later when he beat Johnson with a slap shot from the top of the slot for his second goal in three games.
Blues defenseman Al MacInnis had the only goal of the second period. With St. Louis on a power play, Demitra fluttered a cross-ice pass to the right circle, where MacInnis deflected it between Turco’s pads for his 13th goal.
“We had a chance to make up some ground tonight. For the most part, I thought we did a good job,” MacInnis said. “Couple tough breaks against us and that’s the game.”
