Blues beat Red Wings 4-3 in shootout

By AP

ST. LOUIS – Paul Kariya scored twice for his first goals at home in more than 15 months, and the St. Louis Blues recovered after blowing a two-goal cushion, beating the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 in a shootout on Tuesday night.

T.J. Oshie and Brad Boyes scored in the shootout for St. Louis. Goalie Chris Mason clinched it with a left pad save on Henrik Zetterberg in the third round.

Kariya got credit for a deflection off David Perron's drive on the Blues' first goal and added an assist for his second two-goal game of the season and sixth multipoint game of the season.

The Red Wings got goals from Pavel Datsyuk and Valtteri Filppula in the final 5:34 to force overtime. Johan Franzen had an assist in his first game back from a 55-game absence due to a left knee injury.
