Perron scores quickly in first game back

by Louie Korac /

ST. LOUIS -- After missing 97 games with a concussion, David Perron needed only a little more than six minutes to make an impact upon his return.

Perron scored the only goal of the first period to give the Blues a 1-0 lead against the Chicago Blackhawks after 20 minutes Saturday night at Scottrade Center.

Perron, who took the ice Saturday for the first time since Nov. 4, 2010, when he suffered a concussion after a hit from Joe Thornton, was able to lift a puck from a tough angle on the near side over Blackhawks goalie Ray Emery 6:21 into the game, sending the home crowd into a frenzy. He took a puck at the side of the net after teammate Patrik Berglund threw a pass towards the goal.

Perron was also in the starting lineup for the Blues and received a loud road from the raucous crowd. The Blues' winger scored four of his five goals last season in two games against the Blackhawks.
