Productive Perron leads Blues against Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings at St. Louis Blues

  1. Detroit beat St. Louis, 4-3, in the first meeting this season, and has won on five of its last six road trips to St. Louis dating back February 2013 (5-1-0). Detroit only has better road records against Vegas (1-0-0) and Carolina (8-1-0) over this span.
  2. Detroit has won back-to-back games over the Islanders and Rangers, its first time winning consecutive games since February 12-14. Seven of Detroit's last eight wins have been by one-goal margins of victory.
  3. St. Louis beat Edmonton on Tuesday, 7-2, scoring twice on the power play. It was the Blues' third game this month scoring multiple power-play goals, tied for most in the NHL (Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay).
  4. Jaden Schwartz had his fourth career hat trick on Tuesday and his first since October 2017. It was his third career four-point game, with each of the last two coming against Edmonton.
  5. David Perron had two goals and an assist on Tuesday, his first three-point game since October 11. Perron's personal 16-game point streak dating back to before his injury is the longest active streak in the NHL and is the third-longest personal streak in the NHL this season.
  6. Andreas Athanasiou scored two goals for a second consecutive game on Tuesday, scoring the game-winning goal for his team in each game. His seven multi-goal games this season are the most by a Red Wing since Marian Hossa had eight in 2008-09.

Forward David Perron has picked up where he left off, and apparently so have the St. Louis Blues.

Perron pushed his personal point streak to 16 games (nine goals, 12 assists) after collecting three goals and two assists in his last three contests since returning from a nearly two-month absence due to a concussion.

While the missed time prevents Perron's personal point streak as being viewed as official in the eyes of the NHL rulebook, the Blues have recorded five points (2-0-1) since his return heading into Thursday's home encounter against the Detroit Red Wings.

Perron, who tallied twice in a 4-3 setback in Detroit on Nov. 28, scored two goals and set up another in St. Louis' 7-2 romp over Edmonton on Tuesday.

New linemate Jaden Schwartz received top billing against the Oilers, however, after recording his fourth NHL hat trick and third career four-point performance.

The fact that the pair worked well together was no surprise to the 30-year-old Perron.

"Yeah, why not," Perron said. "He actually brings it up a lot that when I play with him, I get hat tricks because I got two against Calgary in the last two years and he was on the line. So I'm glad to turn it around on him a little bit. We both had two there, it was nice for one of us to get one."

Schwartz welcomed the offensive surge after scoring just seven times in his previous 59 games.

"I think you need to relax a little bit. You feel more confident with the puck," the 26-year-old Schwartz said. "Maybe find open areas a little more. I think in any sport when you're having a little bit more success it gives you a little bit better feeling."

St. Louis native Patrick Maroon scored in his third straight game and rookie goaltender Jordan Binnington improved to 14-3-0 in his last 17 starts for the Blues, who reside two points ahead of Dallas for third place in the Central Division.

Detroit put the brakes on its demoralizing 1-9-3 stretch by winning back-to-back contests, including notching a 3-2 victory against the New York Rangers on Tuesday in the opener of its five-game road trip.

Speedy forward Andreas Athanasiou, who scored in the first meeting with St. Louis, tallied twice for the second consecutive contest on Tuesday to push his season goal total to a team-leading 28.

"He's been playing great for us," All-Star goaltender Jimmy Howard said of the 24-year-old Athanasiou. "When he's going, we are a lot better team. He is a gamebreaker."

Howard preserved the win against the Rangers by turning aside 41 shots for the second time in five starts.

Howard, who turns 35 on Tuesday, signed a one-year extension with the Red Wings on Wednesday.

"It means a lot," Howard said prior to the official announcement. "This is the only organization I know. I love playing for the Wings. My family loves living in Detroit. It's very special."

Howard improved to 14-9-2 in 25 career encounters versus the Blues by making 33 saves in the November contest.
