ST. LOUIS (AP) — After getting his 400th career goal Yanni Gourde Jersey , Eric Staal wants to keep on going.Staal got his milestone goal less than five minutes in to lead the Minnesota Wild to a 5-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.The veteran forward, who began his career in 2003 and skated in his 1,100th game on Oct. 19th, became just the 96th player in NHL history to reach 400 goals. He joined Alex Ovechkin, Patrick Marleau, Ilya Kovalchuk, Sidney Crosby, and Marian Gaborik as the only active players with the mark.2“It feels good,” Staal said. “I hope there’s a lot more yet. I feel like I’m still a young guy. I got a lot more time to play this game. It’s a special game and I’m grateful every day I’m in Auston Matthews Jersey , so I try to prove myself every day. It’s cool. I’m sure my kids will have something to say about it tomorrow, which is fun for me and hopefully, more ahead.”Nick Seeler, J.T. Brown, Matt Dumba and Eric Fehr also scored for the Wild. Devan Dubnyk stopped 15 shots.Ryan O’Reilly scored for St. Louis, and Jake Allen finished with 40 saves.Staal opened the scoring at 4:42 of the first period with his fifth of the season.“It was a heck of tip,” said Seeler, who assisted on Staal’s goal. “Not a lot of guys can make that play. It was a really nice tip. I just tried to get it kind of by him and let him do the rest.”Just 5 seconds later, Seeler got the first of his career as he beat Allen with a slap shot from the left circle to make it 2-0. He also had two assists on the night for the first three point game of his career.“It’s nice to have that first one go in Connor Brown Jersey ,” Seeler said. “It was exciting and I’ve just tried to get more pucks to the net and create more offense. We’ve played so well as a team tonight. It was a great team win. It was fun.”The Blues cut the lead in half as O’Reilly flipped the puck stick side past Dubnyk on the power play at 11:32. O’Reilly has now scored at least one point in seven consecutive games. The Blues lead the NHL with 15 power play goals.The Wild restored their two-goal lead with 1:51 left in the first when Brown broke away on a turnover from Jay Bouwmeester and blasted it over Allen’s left shoulder for Minnesota’s first unassisted goal and his first of the season.“I’m a firm believer that balance wins,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. “When it’s difficult to check all four lines and six D, it makes it really hard to play against or match up against a team.”The lone score of the second period came with 4 1/2 minutes left when Brayden Schenn lost the puck in the neutral zone and Mikael Granlund passed it ahead to defenseman Dumba for his fourth. St. Louis challenged the play for offsides, but video replay upheld the initial call. Granlund now has a point in 10 straight games.Schenn was not on the bench and did not play in the third period. Yeo said Schenn was “sore.”Fehr scored his second of the season at 9:15 of the third to cap the scoring.“I just thought the balance was really good but they gave us energy when we needed it,” Boudreau said. “The Eric Fehr goal at the end of the period, because they were starting to come on a little bit and that sort of finished that. Those are the kind of shifts that you really need and they came up big.”“Sometimes you lose and sometimes you get beat and we got beat all over the ice tonight,” Blues head coach Mike Yeo said. “The only thing that’s a little bit disturbing is that for a division game and playing at home, we didn’t really seem to really get any response tonight. That was disappointing.”NOTES: The Blues recorded only five shots on goal in the first period and four in the second as they were outshot 45-16 on the night. … Minnesota is in the midst of a franchise record seven-game road stretch. This game was the third of seven in a 14-day span that began Oct. 29. … The Wild improved to 3-3 on the road this season.UP NEXTWild: At San Jose on Tuesday night.Blues: Host Carolina on Tuesday night. Two teams looking for a major spark will get together Tuesday night when the Anaheim Ducks host the Philadelphia Flyers at Honda Center.The Ducks have lost five in a row, their longest losing streak in three years Frederik Andersen Jersey , while the Flyers have dropped their past three games by a combined score of 13-2.The game in Anaheim will be the start of a four-game West Coast trip for the Flyers (4-7-0) , their only visit to California and Arizona this season. Team captain Claude Giroux told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the road trip should provide an opportunity for the team to bond away from the ice.Article continues below ...“That’s what we need right now,” Giroux said. “We need to get closer as a team, we need to go out there and play for each other, and this road trip is going to be very important for the season.”The Ducks (5-5-2) opened a four-game homestand Sunday night against the San Jose Sharks and played better than in the previous four games, rallying from a 3-1 deficit in the second period with two goals from recent waiver acquisition Pontus Aberg, but they eventually lost 4-3 in overtime.Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle stressed the importance of staying positive during this rut.“There is our fair share of work that needs to be done, but for us it’s about taking the next step,” he said. “Right now Womens Jake Gardiner Jersey , we’re a hockey club that has to try to create an identity, and we did that in the last 30 minutes of (the San Jose) game.”Anaheim has been trying to play with a faster pace, but the process seems to be creating more scoring chances for the opposition than the Ducks.The Sharks outshot Anaheim 19-8 in the first period and 34-17 through two before finishing with a 45-27 edge. The Ducks are allowing a league-high 39.1 shots per game while taking a league-low 24.5.“We have to get to the bottom of that,” Ducks defenseman Josh Manson said.The Ducks have been repeatedly bailed out by goaltenders John Gibson and Ryan Miller. Gibson is sixth in the NHL with a .938 save percentage, and Miller also has a .938 save percentage in three appearances, including two starts. Despite the heavy volume of shots against, they’ve helped limit the team’s goals-against average to 2.75, which is 12th-best in the NHL.The Flyers haven’t received nearly as quality of goaltending, a major reason why they’re allowing a league-high 4.18 goals per game.The Flyers have also struggled on the penalty kill Matt Bartkowski Jersey Womens , allowing a league-high 13 power-play goals for a league-worst kill rate of 67.5 percent. They’ve allowed six power-play goals in the past four games.“We can’t give up,” Philadelphia center Scott Laughton told the Inquirer. “On the bench, you’ve got to stay positive, keep encouraging guys, and it’s only these guys in here that’s going to get us out of it. No one’s going to feel sorry for us that we’re under .500.”
