Blues Down Wings, Keep Pace In West

Patrik Berglund broke a 10-game scoring drought with two goals to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Berglund scored twice in a span of 4:20 in the first period to break a 1-1 tie. The win helped the Blues keep pace in the tight Western Conference. They had won two of their previous seven home games after starting the season 8-0-1.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 35 shots to improve to 13-10-4. Halak had given up 11 goals on 67 shots in two losses to Detroit earlier this season.

Berglund got the second two-goal game of his career. He scored twice in a 2-0 win over Los Angeles on March 24, 2009. The 25th overall pick in the 2006 draft, Berglund whistled a shot off defenseman Niklas Kronwall to give St. Louis a 2-1 lead.
