DALLAS - The St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars traded four goals over a span of five minutes and 16 seconds in the third period of Game 3, but it was Pat Maroon who got the last word, beating Stars goalie Ben Bishop with 1:38 remaining to send the Blues to a 4-3 win in Game 3.
St. Louis leads the best-of-seven series, 2-1.
Here are some stats and notes worth mentioning from Game 3:
- The Blues tied a franchise record with their longest road winning streak in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. St. Louis has opened the playoffs with four straight wins on the road, matching a record originally set during the 1969 season. The most road wins in any playoff year for the Blues came in 2016, when they won six games and reached the Western Conference Final.

- Jordan Binnington made 28 saves in Game 3 on Monday to earn his 30th career win in just his 39th career start (regular season and playoffs). Binnington tied a League record set by Frederik Anderson in 2014 for the fewest starts needed to reach 30 wins. Binnington also became the first NHL rookie goalie to win his first four road playoff games since Cam Ward did it with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006.
- Jaden Schwartz opened the scoring in Game 3 with his sixth goal of the postseason, which shares the League lead with Vegas' Mark Stone, San Jose's Tomas Hertl and Logan Couture. Each of Schwartz's goals have come in the last five games. Only three Blues in franchise history have scored more playoff goals in a five-game span: Brett Hull (7 in 1990 and 91), Joe Mullen (7 in 1982) and Brian Sutter (7 in 1982).
- When a best-of-seven series is tied 1-1, the winner of Game 3 owns an all-time record of 213-103 (67.4 percent).
