LAS VEGAS (AP) — St. Louis forward David Perron has zero points in two games against the Vegas Golden Knights.He has two wins Authentic Julio Jones Jersey , though.Perron made an emotional return to Vegas and Ryan O’Reilly scored twice to lead the Blues over the Golden Knights 4-1 on Friday night. Brayden Schenn and Oskar Sundqvist also scored for St. Louis.“It’s fun from the warm-up on to the last minute,” said Perron, who had a career-best 66 points with Vegas last season. “Obviously a lot of energy in this crowd and it’s always fun coming here. I got so many messages. … I feel the love from this city for sure.”Perron, who set the NHL record for most assists (50) by a player on an expansion team with the Golden Knights before signing with St. Louis as a free agent, made it no secret he wanted to re-sign with Vegas, but couldn’t come to terms with the club during the offseason.“It’s unfortunate how it worked out,” Perron said. “I still wish it could’ve been different.”While the Blues improved to 2-0-0 against Vegas and 4-1-0 against the Pacific Division this season, the Golden Knights are struggling to find the same magic they had during last year’s run to the Stanley Cup Final.Vegas had scored four or more goals in three of its past four games but was shut down by Jake Allen. The Blues goalie stopped 32 shots after allowing three or more goals in five of his previous six outings.“We know what kind of team they are,” Allen said. “We played them a couple of weeks ago … very offensive, very opportunistic team. They usually get their chances most games and we were able to shut them down.”William Carrier scored for the Golden Knights, and Marc-Andre Fleury made 31 saves.After posting a career-best 2.24 goals against average last season, Fleury’s 2.52 GAA is his second-highest since the 2009-10 season.Sundqvist, who has six goals in his 79-game career Julio Jones Jersey Limited , has scored three of them against Fleury this season, also scoring two on Nov. 1 in a 5-3 win at St. Louis.“It’s been working against Vegas so far this season,” Sundqvist said “I’ve gotten a lot of help with all the goals from my linemates and D-men. I don’t know why it’s been working, especially against Fleury, because I never scored on him before.”Moments after Vegas opened the scoring with Carrier’s breakaway goal against Allen, the Blues tied it when O’Reilly flipped it just under Fleury’s arm.St. Louis took a 2-1 lead in the second period when O’Reilly deflected Jaden Schwartz’s shot from the right wing. Schenn scored off a faceoff for a 3-1 lead later in the period, and Sundqvist scored 59 seconds later.The Golden Knights have been outscored in the second period 28-17.“It’s early in the season I know, but this has happened way too often,” center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare said. “I think the coaches probably have a better answer than I will have. It’s one bad bounce and then suddenly we’re two or three behind. I really couldn’t pinpoint what is going on. But it seems to happen every time in the second.”NOTES: The Golden Knights played their final game without suspended defenseman Nate Schmidt, who sat the first 20 games for violating the league’s Performance Enhancing Substances Program. … Gunnarsson left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return. … Vladimir Tarasenko had two assists and has a point in seven of his last nine games. … St. Louis is now 3-0-2 against the Golden Knights since the start of last season. … O’Reilly leads the Blues with 10 goals and 23 points.UP NEXTBlues: Travels to play San Jose on SaturdayGolden Knights: Visits Edmonton on Sunday. ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Blues center Brayden Schenn wasted little time in providing a much-needed spark on home ice.Schenn scored twice and Vince Dunn had a career-high three assists to help the St. Louis Blues beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-1 on Thursday night.Schenn’s fight with Gabriel Landeskog three seconds into the game set the tone.”I thought we’d been a little bit flat at home lately,” Schenn said. ”You can try and start different ways, try to be physical early or offensive early. … I don’t do it often, but it’s part of the game and it’s good to get one every once in a while.”Blues coach Mike Yeo knew something was brewing when Patrik Berglund lined up to take the opening faceoff instead of Schenn.”I know people have different opinions of fighting in the game or whatever , but it sends a message to your team,” Yeo said.Landeskog was also trying to give the Avalanche a spark.”We’ve got to be better on the road so I figure, `start off the road trip and set the tone,’ and that was really it,” Landeskog said. ”He asked me and I didn’t have one this year so why not?”Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist, and Ivan Barbashev, Kyle Brodziak and Alex Pietrangelo also scored. The Blues scored more than four goals for the first time since Dec. 9 as 13 of the team’s 18 skaters had at least one point.Carter Hutton made 23 saves as St. Louis beat Colorado for the fourth straight time. The Blues have earned points against the Avalanche in 12 consecutive games.Dunn is the Blues’ first rookie defenseman to have three assists in a game since Erik Johnson on Jan. 8, 2008.”I was just trying to play simple and make the plays over there and everybody contributed tonight,” Dunn said.Gabriel Bourque scored for the Avalanche, who lost for the fifth time in seven games. Semyon Varlamov allowed three goals in relief of Jonathan Bernier after he allowed three goals in 20 shots.The Blues took control on goals by Barbashev and Schenn 48 seconds apart early in the second period.Barbashev’s goal, beating Bernier short-side from a difficult angle at the left faceoff circle, broke a 1-1 tie at 4:17 of the second.Schenn’s second of the game made it 3-1 and ended Bernier’s night. It was Schenn’s third multi-goal game this season.Brodziak and Pietrangelo blew the game open with goals later in the second and Stastny scored six minutes into the third period.”I thought everyone stepped up tonight, everyone played a good game from the goalie out Authentic Matt Ryan Jersey ,” Schenn said. ”Guys were getting rewarded, which was good to see.”Schenn put the Blues on top 1-0 with a power play goal at 8:41 of the first period. Schenn’s 300th career point came off of a Jaden Schwartz slap shot off of Bernier’s pad that deflected directly to his tape.The Blues lost defensemen Joel Edmundson (upper body) for the rest of the game eight minutes into the first after he blocked a shot from Colorado’s Nail Yakupov. Yeo said he is definitely out for Friday’s game at Winnipeg.”When a guy goes down, everybody’s got to step up and everybody’s got to contribute like the way we did,” Dunn said.Bourque tied it at 1 at 2:50 of the second, capitalizing on Vladimir Sobotka’s giveaway.”We have to be better,” Landeskog said. ”I mean you look at the score, it’s embarrassing.”FACES IN THE CROWDCommissioner Gary Bettman and Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey were at the game. Both league heads were shown the improvements to the Scottrade Center as part of $64 million in renovations to the 24-year-old facility.NOTES: Brodziak played in his 200th game as a Blue. … Avalanche F Mikko Rantanen (lower body) returned to the lineup after missing his first game of the season on Tuesday. … The Blues scratched R Chris Thorburn, D Robert Bortuzzo and C Oskar Sundqvist. … The Avalanche scratched L A.J.
