ST. LOUIS

Loui Eriksson had a goal and an assist, Marty Turco made 26 saves and the Dallas Stars beat the St. Louis Blues, 4-1, on Saturday night improve to 4-0-3 on the road. James Neal, Tom Wandell and Brian Sutherby also scored, and Brad Richards added two assists to help the Stars set a franchise record with points in seven straight road games. Alex Pietrangelo scored his first career NHL goal for the Blues, who have dropped three of four games at Scottrade Center. Ty Conklin stopped 27 shots. Neal put the Stars on top with his sixth goal of the season, taking Richards' pass in the right circle and rifling a shot that got through Conklin at the near post 7:56 into the second. Eriksson netted his fifth on the Stars' first power play. Richards again made the play with a pass in the low slot and Eriksson beat Conklin short side 10:17 into the second. A scoreless first period was filled with two fights and each team being thwarted on breakaway attempts. Conklin made a pad save on Steve Ott's short-handed attempt midway through the period, and the Blues' Jay McClement had his backhand attempt roll off his stick trying to beat Turco. Wandell put the Stars up by three when he backhanded a shot from the slot past Conklin 4:48 into the third after Conklin made an initial save off a Steve Ott shot. Sutherby stole a puck from Brad Winchester and beat Conklin on a breakaway at 9:51 to make it 4-0. Pietrangelo, the fourth overall pick in 2008, broke up Turco's shutout with what appeared to be a harmless wrister from the left half boards that caromed off the Dallas goalie and into the net with 3:50 left. NOTES: Stars F Brenden Morrow did not earn a point and is still one point shy of 400 for his career. ... Blues F D.J. King (dislocated thumb) made his season debut Saturday and it didn't last long. After a fight on his first shift of the game with Dallas F Krys Barch, King left the ice favoring his right hand and did not return. ... Blues F Keith Tkachuk has 57 points, including 32 goals, in 63 career games against the Stars. ... Blues D Carlo Colaiacovo (upper body) left the game in the second period and did not return.
