Perron keeps up his overtime heroics

In 2019-20, David Perron led the League and set a Blues single-season franchise record by scoring four overtime game-winning goals.

On Thursday night, he was at it again, helping his team to a comeback 3-2 win against the San Jose Sharks.

Perron's goal with one minute left in overtime was his sixth overtime game-winner as a member of the Blues, which ranks third all-time in franchise history. Only Pavol Demitra (7) and Vladimir Tarasenko (10) have scored more.

"He's a gamer," goalie Jordan Binnington said of Perron's overtime heroics. "We've known that about him over the years. Obviously he's got a pretty deadly shot. That's a big extra point."

"I think there's a lot of ice out there for him, and he's a dangerous guy," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube added. "He's really strong on the puck, he wins puck battles, and obviously, his shot is really good. He's going to get looks out there and it suits him."
