Brad Boyes scored in the second round of the shootout, and Ty Conklin stopped Stephane Robidas in the third to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night. Brad Richards scored for Dallas in the first round, but Andy McDonald countered for St. Louis. Dallas' Mike Ribeiro hit the goal post with his second-round attempt, and Boyes scored through Marty Turco's pads to give the Blues the edge. T.J. Oshie gave the Blues a 3-2 advantage with 8:59 remaining, firing a wrist shot from the right circle that beat Turco on the glove side for St. Louis' first lead. But Brenden Morrow tied it at 3 for Dallas on a deflection off Richards' shot with 25.4 seconds left in regulation and Turco off for a sixth attacker. Erik Johnson scored a first-period power-play goal to snap St. Louis' 0-for-19 drought with the man-advantage. David Backes added a goal and an assist in regulation, and Conklin stopped 34 shots for St. Louis. Robidas scored on the power play, and Toby Petersen added a goal for the Stars, who got a 35-save performance from Turco. Dallas had the game's first nine shots and took the lead on Robidas' one-timer at from the left point at 5:37. St. Louis answered at 9:00 of the first period as Johnson fired into an open net with the man advantage to beat an out-of-position Turco. Petersen's one-timer from the right circle got through Conklin's pads 1:43 after Johnson's goal to give Dallas a 2-1 edge. Backes' rebound at 10:02 of the first drew St. Louis even at 2. Stars leading goal-scorer James Neal was back on the top line with Richards and Loui Eriksson after completing a two-game league suspension.
