Blues pull off 4-3 win in final two minutes

The Blues are looking to beat the Stars again to come out of the Central Division, and they're halfway to doing so with Monday nights win.

St. Louis started the scoring thanks to Jaden Schwartz tipping a Colton Parayko point shot.

But the Stars battled back, and Alexander Radulov put Dallas on the board, beating Jordan Binnington glove side.

St. Louis pulled ahead twice, but every time they did, the Stars climbed back into the game, with a short-handed goal from Andrew Cogliano and a Tyler Seguin back-door feed from Miro Heiskanen.

With 1:38 remaining in the third period, the Blues regained the lead and did not relinquish it. Pat Maroon knocked Esa Lindell down in front of the net, then beat Ben Bishop far side after recovering the puck. It's Maroon's second goal of the playoffs, and the Blues are now 4-0 on the road in the playoffs.
