ST. LOUIS - David Backes scored twice and Jaden Schwartz added a goal and two assists to lead the St. Louis Blues over the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-3 on Thursday night.

St. Louis has eight of 11 overall. At 13-2-2, the Blues tied with Boston, Pittsburgh and Minnesota for most home-ice wins.

Toronto lost its third in a row.

Alexander Steen, Derek Roy and Chris Stewart scored for St. Louis, which has points in its last six games against Toronto. The teams met for the first time since Nov. 10, 2011.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
