THE MATCHUP

BLUES: The Blues are on a roll thanks to David Perron, who has scored two overtime game-winners this week to help the defending Stanley Cup champions to three straight wins.

Perron needed just eight seconds of overtime to score his most recent winner on Friday night, which sealed a 4-3 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Perron's goal was the fastest overtime goal in franchise history.

Despite the winning streak, which includes three consecutive wins and victories in five of the last six, the Blues feel they can improve.

"We know we can play better," Blues forward Brayden Schenn said after the game. "We're grinding out wins right now, letting teams hang around. Columbus is a good team, but we feel like we didn't play our best hockey game tonight, but we were able to get the two points and we'll take it."

The Blues begin a four-game road trip on Saturday in Minnesota that will also take them to Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.

On Saturday, the Wild host the Blues at Xcel Energy Center, where they are on 3-1 on the season.

Through 13 games, the Wild are 4-9-0 and sit last in the Central Division.
