Blues Beat Backes & Bruins 4-2

Boston Bruins Vs St. Louis Blues

GOALS, GOALS EVERYWHEREThe Blues entered Tuesday with a troubling road record, but they did just about eveything they could to end that trend in the second period. "Once our attack went direct, I thought the second period was the best we've played on the road".

Chara left for the dressing room after one shift in the second period.

"We got caught in our own end at times for long periods of time and then we had some guys that were out there exhausted", Boston coach Claude Julien said.

The Bruins were riding high, with a 1-0 lead and feverish pace of play, early in the second period when the 6-foot-9 Zdeno Chara made his way to the bench, down the runway, and did not return. Hitchcock said the turnaround was remarkable and simple.

"A couple of their lines, especially their bigger lines, did a good job of holding onto the puck and that caused some problems for some of our (defense) trying to get the puck away and all of a sudden they are capitalizing on rebounds", Torey Krug said.

TORONTO (AP) - Viktor Stalberg scored a tiebreaking, short-handed goal in the second period, lifting Carolina over Toronto for its fifth straight victory.

There wasn't much action after that and the B's took their one-goal lead down the tunnel into first intermission.

Defenseman Colton Parayko had two assists for St. Louis.

Despite Chara's absence, the Bruins played with energy and had many chances to score.

Dominic Moore also scored for the Bruins, who lost for just the third time this season with Tuukka Rask starting in goal. "He's obviously an awesome player, but we're going to have injuries to guys and we need to spread the wealth and all shoulder a little bit more load, and find ways to win games".

Lehtera tied it at 1 when he tipped Parayko's past Rask 3:23 into the second. Boston challenged the goal for a potential goaltender interference, but it was upheld on replay.

Paul Stastny's goal, which came shortly after Robert Bortuzzo scored his first of the season to tie the game at two, goes in the books as the game-winner.

Backes spent 10 seasons with St. Louis, serving as team captain for the past five seasons before signing a five-year contract to join Boston.

Krug picked up his 100th assist and David Krejci, who had the other assist, notched his 484th career point, tying him with Don Marcotte for 15th on the Bruins' all-time list. RW David Pastrnak, who leads Boston with 10 goals, missed his third consecutive game with an undisclosed injury.
