Berglund scores on power play in overtime to lift Blues to 3-2 win over Stars

ST. LOUIS - Patrik Berglund scored a power-play goal in overtime to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night.

Pietrangelo tied the game at 2-2 on a power-play goal with 4:41 left in regulation.

Jamie Benn and Alex Chiasson scored for Dallas, which had won two straight. It was Benn's second of the preseason.

The Blues tied the game at 1-1 with 11:30 remaining in the second on Jaden Schwartz's goal. His score ended Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen's shutout streak at 59:30. Lehtonen stopped 33 shots.

Jake Allen made 22 saves for the Blues.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
