UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Paul Stastny scored twice ? including the go-ahead goal in the third period ? and the Blues rallied to beat the New York Islanders 6-4, on Saturday giving relief goaltender Martin Brodeur his first win in a St. Louis uniform.
Stastny's second goal of the game and his fifth of the season at 13:26 of the third snapped a 4-4 tie and gave the Blues their first lead. St. Louis fell behind 3-0 in the first period, then replaced starter Jake Allen with Brodeur to start the second.
Brodeur made 14 saves for career win No. 689 and his 52nd against the Islanders, the most for the 42-year-old goaltender against any team. Brodeur stopped Brock Nelson and Anders Lee in front early in the third and was hardly tested late.
