Peter Regin's first career NHL goal lifts Senators over Blues 3-1 @NHLdotcom

ST. LOUIS - Peter Regin scored his first goal in the NHL with 1:57 left in the third to lift the Ottawa Senators to a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

With the score deadlocked 1-1, Regin gained control of the puck on the left side, skated behind the Blues net and beat goalie Chris Mason with a wrist shot from the right circle.

Mike Fisher, who had scored an earlier short-handed tally, added an empty-net goal with 32.4 seconds remaining. Brian Elliott made 22 saves for the Senators.

Brad Winchester had the only goal for St. Louis.

Ottawa took a 1-0 lead when Blues forward David Perron mishandled the rebound of Fisher's shot in front of the St. Louis net. That allowed Fisher to get control of the puck again in the slot before beating Mason with a wrist shot 10:06 into the game.

The Blues had only one shot on goal in the first 13 minutes. However they tied the game on their second shot at 13:04. Winchester deflected Jeff Woywitka's pass from the left wing past Elliott.

Notes: Blues forward Keith Tkachuk played in his 1,100th NHL game. ... Ottawa has not lost to the Blues since Nov. 27, 2001, winning four straight in that span. ... The Senators won for just the sixth time away from home (6-14-3).
