St. Louis scored first on McAmmond's 15th goal of the season
with 2:07 remaining in the first period. McAmmond took a cross-ice
pass from Lee Stempniak and whistled a shot from in front of the
net past Turco's glove.
Dallas wasted little time in the second period as they tied the
game at 17:33. Klemm beat Curtis Sanford over his glove from the
left circle after taking a pass from Mathias Tjarnqvist.
Dallas made it 2-1 less than 3 minutes later when Arnott scored
on the power play for his 20th goal of the season at 15:08. With
Steve Poapst in the penalty box for hooking, a battle ensued in
front of the net. Arnott slid the puck past Sanford, giving him
nine points in his last 10 games including five goals.
The Blues tied the game at 2 on the power play when Orszagh
scored after a scramble in front of the net. After Sanford, who was
making his seventh straight start, made a diving save on Steve Ott
on a 2-on-1 Stars break, the Blues had a 5-on-2 the other way and
they did not squander the opportunity.
Glumac scored in just his fourth NHL game 32 seconds later.
Turco couldn't handle a slap shot from Dallas Drake skating in on
the left side and Glumac jammed home the rebound.
"They say the first one is the hardest," Glumac said. "I'm
just glad to have that one behind me."
Dallas tied the game 4:55 into the third period. Lehtinen took a
drop pass from Jussi Jokinen and beat Sanford for his 26th goal.
Sanford (8-12-4) made 25 saves for the victory while Turco
(28-14-2) made 23 saves in the loss.
"The two (goals) in the second period sort of changed the face
of the game" Turco said. "But tonight wasn't our best overall
