Ducks Get Blown Out 9-3 By Blues In St. Louis

St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Andy McDonald, T.J. Oshie and Chris Stewart each scored a pair of goals, as the new-look St. Louis Blues dominated the Anaheim Ducks, 9-3, at Scottrade Center. David Backes and Alexander Steen each had a goal and two assists for the Blues, who have won three in a row. Ty Conklin stopped 3-of-5 shots before being replaced by Ben Bishop, who made 20 saves.

Hours after earning a win Friday night in Buffalo, the Blues dealt former No. 1 overall pick Eric Johnson and center Jay McClement to the Colorado Avalanche in multi-player trade. In addition to the two players, the Blues sent a conditional 2011 or 2012 first-round draft choice to Colorado in exchange for Stewart and Kevin Shattenkirk, as well as a conditional 2011 or 2012 second- round draft choice. Shattenkirk assisted on Stewart's second goal.

Teemu Selanne, Jarkko Ruutu and Ryan Getzlaf lit the lamp for the Ducks, who have dropped three straight since a four-game winning streak. Anaheim acquired Ruutu from the Senators on Thursday in exchange for a sixth- round pick in the 2011 draft. Ruutu made his Ducks debut on Saturday. Curtis McElhinney stopped 4-of-11 shots before being pulled for Timo Pielmeier, who stopped 5-of-12 shots.
