Colton Sceviour recorded his first career two-goal effort, while both Jordie Benn and Shawn Horcoff added two assists, as Dallas doubled up St. Louis, 4-2, at Scottrade Center.

Kari Lehtonen came up with 33 stops for the win, as Dallas closed out a four-game road losing streak. Alex Steen tallied both goals and Kevin Shattenkirk posted two assists for the Blues, who saw their three-game win streak come to an end. Ryan Miller allowed all four goals on 27 shots in defeat. St. Louis remained one point behind Boston (108-107), which won at Washington earlier Saturday, in the race for the Presidents' Trophy.
