ST. LOUIS (AP) — David Perron likes his new line.Perron scored his fourth career hat trick Authentic Blake Wheeler Jersey , Alexander Steen had a goal and an assist, and the St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 5-3 on Thursday night.Joel Edmundson also scored and Brayden Schenn had three assists as the Blues won for the first time this season. Jake Allen made 31 saves.Before the game, Blues coach Mike Yeo moved Perron up to the second line with Schenn and Jaden Schwartz.“It’s quite different for sure,” Perron said. “Kind of what I was used from last year. It’s great. I thought (Steen’s) goal really gave us some energy, too. It was good.”James Neal, Derek Ryan and Mikael Backlund scored for the Flames. Mike Smith was pulled following the second period after allowing five goals on 24 shots.Perron gave the Blues a 2-1 lead midway through the first period. Edmundson, making his season debut after missing the first two games with a sore groin, made it 3-1 Blues with 2:38 left in the first, beating Smith high glove side.Perron’s second goal early in the second made it 4-1. Smith misplayed the puck behind the net, allowing Schenn to steal it and find Perron alone in front with an empty net.“He’s known to go play the puck and it just bounced on him,” Schenn said. “I saw the D-man over my right shoulder and I knew I couldn’t take it to the net and I saw Perron at full speed and I was just able to get it to him.”Perron…..tle-jersey , playing in his third stint with the Blues, completed the hat trick with 35 seconds left in the second. His last hat trick also came at Calgary’s expense on Oct. 22, 2016.“It feels great for sure,” Perron said. “We had a good practice week and I think that a lot of people were starting to panic (with the slow start) but I don’t think the players were.”Neal gave the Flames a 1-0 lead at 7:32 of the first. Sam Bennett set it up with a nice move in front, causing Allen to commit and leaving an opening for Neal.“I put pressure on myself to score every night and it’s nice to get my first one in a Flames jersey,” Neal said.Steen answered for the Blues just 16 seconds later. The goal gave Steen 453 career points, surpassing Al MacInnis for seventh in Blues history.Allen got help from his post on Sean Monahan’s penalty shot late in the first period. He also made several tough saves as the Blues killed off a 5-on-3 for 1:35 late in the second period.“It was big, didn’t give them any momentum, which was huge,” Allen said. “So I think that was the biggest thing at the end of the day what came out of it. If they got a goal out of it that may have generated a little more positivity on their side so it was nice to shut that down.”Ryan and Backlund scored in the third for Calgary to cut the deficit to two.NOTES: David Rittich stopped eight shots in relief of Smith. … Blues rookie centers Jordan Kyrou and Robert Thomas each earned their first career points with assists. … Flames C Dillon Dube (lower body) had an assist, despite missing practice on Wednesday. … The Blues scratched RW Chris Thorburn Womens Connor Hellebuyck Jersey , D Vince Dunn and D Jordan Schmaltz. … The Flames scratched D Dalton Prout, RW Garnet Hathaway and C Mark Jankowski.UP NEXTCalgary: Visits Colorado on Saturday night.St. Louis: Visits Chicago on Saturday night. TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Lightning swarming offense has overrun opponents on the first three games of a five-game homestand.The Lightning look to continue that trend and ground the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday at Amalie Arena.Tampa Bay has scored the opening goal in each of the past three games, twice in the opening minute of the first period. In the past two games, the Lightning have built 3-0 leads by the midpoint of the opening period and rode that momentum to victory while riding a three-game win streak.Article continues below …“When you’re up pretty early, it’s a tough hole to climb out for teams,” said Lightning center Brayden Point, who has 17 goals and 31 points on the season. “Sometimes even if they outplay you, it’s still a tough way to get out of. Getting the jump on things early is huge, and the past couple of games we’ve been able to do that, which is nice.”The Lightning also hope to get back forward Ondrej Palat Dmitry Kulikov Jersey , who has missed the past 15 games with a foot injury suffered on Oct. 26 in Vegas.Palat has been skating with the team in recent practices and on Monday worked in a line rotation as Steven Stamkos was given the day off for maintenance purposes.“I feel pretty good. Conditioning getting there,” Palat said. “Today was kind of the first practice, practicing on a line. That was nice to be back with the team on the ice rather than skating by myself.”Defenseman Anton Stralman remains out with an undisclosed upper-body injury. He has missed eight consecutive games.Anaheim saw its four-game streak with at least a point come to an end with a loss in Nashville Sunday. The Ducks have points in five of their past seven games (3-2-2) as they start their first trip to the East Coast.The Ducks made a handful of roster moves before heading out on the road, sending former first-round pick Max Comtois back to Drummondville in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League as well as 20-year-old defenseman Josh Mahura to San Diego in the American Hockey League.Anaheim called up veteran defensemen Andy Welinski and Andrej Sustr, who spent the previous five seasons in the Lightning organization.“They’ve all got to play, all young players,” Anaheim head coach Randy Carlyle told the Orange County Register. “There’s a mandate there. It’s not written in stone, but when you have young players, it does them no good to sit on the bench. It doesn’t. It’s as simple as that. They’ve got to play.”The Ducks also hope to get back center Carter Rowney possibly as soon as Tuesday. Rowney has been out since suffering an upper-body injury on Oct. 13 but has been skating with the team as he nears a return.“He’s becoming an option,” Carlyle said.
