Jordan Binnington made a season-high 50 saves to help the St. Louis Blues snap a seven-game skid a 3-1 win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Wednesday night.

 

Vladimir Tarasenko, Sammy Blais, and Jake Walman scored to help St. Louis end an 0-6-1 stretch. It also gave the Blues their first home victory since an overtime win Feb. 18 against San Jose.

 

Marc-Andre Fleury made 32 saves while losing his third straight start.

 

Tarasenko scored his third goal of the season 48 seconds into the contest to give St. Louis an early lead.

 

Blais scored 7:21 into the first when he roofed a feed from David Perron over Fleury's glove for his fourth goal of the season to make it 2-0. Blais had been a healthy scratch for St. Louis' previous three contests.

 

Walman scored his first NHL goal to add some insurance with 6:27 remaining in regulation to make it 3-0.

 

Nicoals Roy spoiled Binnington's bid for his ninth career shutout when he scored his second goal of the season with 4:16 to go.

 

Kyle Clifford and Ryan Reaves dropped the gloves midway through the first period. It was Clifford's team-leading fourth fight of the season.

 

The Blues host Minnesota on Friday night.
