Perron establishes new franchise overtime record

With his fourth overtime game-winner of the season on Friday night in Winnipeg, St. Louis Blues forward David Perron set a new single-season franchise record.

No player in Blues history has ever scored four overtime winners in the same season. Perron has done it in just his 39th game of the season.

"He's been a real good overtime player for us," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said of Perron after Friday's 5-4 overtime win in Winnipeg. "He finds a way, he's competitive, just does a good job. He played a solid game tonight, was real good. A lot of guys were."

Perron joins Chicago's Jonathan Toews (39 games in 2015-16) as just the second player in NHL history to score four overtime goals in a season prior to his team's 40th game of the season.

Perron's goal gave the Blues a 5-4 victory against the Winnipeg Jets and extended his club's winning streak to seven games, which matches their longest win streak of the season previously set from Oct. 27 to Nov. 9. The Blues' winning streak is currently the longest active winning streak in the League.
