Brayden Schenn and Pat Maroon scored for the Blues. St. Louis lost for the third time in five games after going 13-1-1 in its previous 15.
Brad Marchand and Chris Wagner also scored to help the Bruins improve to 15-0-4 in their last 19 to establish the second-longest points streak in franchise history.

LIGHTING 3, RED WINGS 2
Kucherov has 33 goals and 77 assists for 110 points through 69 games. Vinny Lecavalier held the previous franchise record, finishing with 108 points with 52 goals and 56 assists in 2006-07.
Mikko Rantanen scored on the power play and Gabriel Bourque added a full-length, empty-net goal for the Avalanche. They were missing captain Gabriel Landeskog with the All-Star forward sidelined four-to-six weeks due to an upper-body injury.
The Sabres dropped their fourth straight on coach Phil Housley’s 55th birthday.
Paul Stastny, Alex Tuch, Tomas Nosek, Cody Eakin and Nate Schmidt also scored for the Golden Knights. Marc-Andre Fleury had 29 saves for his 438th win, moving past Jacques Plante for eighth on the NHL’s career list.
The Canucks got goals from Brock Boeser and Bo Horvat. Jacob Markstrom stopped 11 of the 16 shots he faced before he was replaced by Thatcher Demko midway through the first period. Demko turned away 16 of 17 shots.
Zach Aston-Reese scored for Pittsburgh.
Dvorak’s second goal broke a 2-2 tie midway through the third period and Grabner scored on a breakaway with four minutes remaining as the Coyotes won for the eighth time in nine games while setting a franchise record with their first 6-1 homestand. Kuemper has given up just 16 goals in his last 10 starts.
Corey Crawford and the Blackhawks shut out the Stars for the last 53:37 in the team’s second straight victory. Crawford made 26 saves in his third victory in four games since recovering from a concussion.
Alexander Radulov scored for Dallas.
Sebastian Aho had a goal and an assist and Justin Williams and Jordan Martinook also scored. The Hurricanes snapped a two-game skid that included an 8-1 loss to Winnipeg on Friday night and jumped a spot to third in the Metropolitan Division in the Eastern Conference pushing Pittsburgh down to the first wild card.
