Blues Rally Past Stars

Jordan Kyrou and Ryan O'Reilly scored power-play goals in the final minute, rallying the St. Louis Blues over the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Sunday.

 

Kyrou won it with 29 seconds left. O'Reilly tied it at 1-all with 47 seconds to go while the Blues had a 6-on-4 advantage.

 

It was the first time in franchise history the Blues scored twice in the last minute to win.

 

This was the 11th time in NHL history that a team has won in regulation after trailing by one in the last minute. Boston was the last team to do it, scoring twice to beat Florida 4-3 on March 7, 2019.

 

St. Louis extended its home ice point streak to 12 games, going 11-0-1 during the run. Jordan Binnington made 26 saves for the Blues.

 

Kyrou's shot from a wide angle deflected off Dallas defenseman Jani Hakanpaa.

Jason Robertson scored a second-period goal for Dallas, which had a four-game winning streak snapped. He extended his point streak to seven games.

 

The Blues' two goals came after Braden Holtby had stymied them for most of the contest. Holtby made 29 saves and came within a minute of his 36th career shutout.

 

St. Louis has outscored its opponents 49-21 during the 12-game run, which is the third longest in franchise history, tying the mark set from Jan. 6-Feb. 26, 2001.

 

O'Reilly converted from the slot after Torey Krug's shot hit the backboard and bounced right to him. Dallas defenseman Miro Heiskanen was given a slashing penalty on the goal by O'Reilly, which came on a 6-on-4 advantage with Binnington out of the net.

 

Robertson scored his 12th of the season off a goal-mouth scramble. He poked the puck past Binnington at 9:16.

 

The Stars were coming off a 3-2 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday, snapping the Penguins' 10-game winning streak. Robertson, who has points in his last seven games, assisted on all three goals in that win.

 

St. Louis has a league-leading 11-5-1 mark when giving up the first goal.

 

The Blues host Seattle on Thursday.
