DALLAS (AP) David Perron scored two goals and had an assist, and Wade Redden notched his first NHL goal in almost three years to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night.

Both of Perron's goals, as well as Chris Stewart's third of the season, were part of a three-goal second period that turned a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 lead for St. Louis.

Ryan Garbutt's first goal of the season pulled Dallas to within one 2:24 into the third, but the Stars' late charge fell just short.

Dallas also had a power play for the final 14.3 seconds, but time ran out.

Michael Ryder and Tomas Vincour also scored for Dallas, which fell to 2-2-1 on the year.
