McDonald scores twice in Blues' shootout win against Blue Jackets
ST. LOUIS -- Andy McDonald scored two goals and added another in a shootout in the St. Louis Blues' 5-4 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night.
Ben Bishop allowed one goal on 20 shots after relieving Ty Conklin midway through the first period with St. Louis trailing 3-1.
The Blues scored three times on four shots against Steve Mason in the shootout, with Alex Steen getting the deciding tally.
The Blues honored four players who starred for the franchise wearing No. 7 in a pre-game ceremony for the 34th straight home sellout, also one of the more enthusiastic crowds for a matchup of teams on the outside of the playoff hunt.
St. Louis won for only the second time in nine games and avoiding dropping below .500 for the first time all season. The Blue Jackets lost their fifth straight game.
Jakub Voracek had a goal and assist for Columbus, and Rick Nash had two assists.
Patrik Berglund added a goal and an assist for the Blues, who totaled four goals the previous four games. David Backes had two assists.
Conklin was yanked after allowing three goals on eight shots, by Voracek, Matt Calvert and Fedor Tyutin.
McDonald and T.J. Oshie scored power-play goals in a span of 1:15 to tie it and Columbus didn't get off a shot against Bishop the rest of the period.
The Blues made it three in a row on McDonald's second of the game and 16th overall at 6:53 of the third. Derek MacKenzie nudged the puck over the line on Nash's backhand on a 2-on-1 break to tie it at 10:28.
