ST. LOUIS — Brad Boyes, Carlo Colaiacovo and Eric Brewer scored 86 seconds apart in the second period to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 5-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

The Blues (10-5-3) snapped a five-game losing streak and improved to 7-0-1 at home. Ottawa lost for the fourth time in five games.

Ty Conklin made 18 saves to record his first home win with the Blues. He had been 0-6 with a 4.45 goals-against average at the arena.

Ottawa's Brian Elliott stopped the first 17 shots he faced before St. Louis had its fastest three-goal spurt of the season.

Andy McDonald and Patrik Berglund added insurance goals in the third period. Alex Pietrangelo and David Backes both had two assists.

Boyes popped in a rebound of a shot from the point by Pietrangelo for a power-play goal that made it 1-1 midway through the second period. It was Boyes' fourth goal in four games and fifth of the season.

Just 51 seconds later, Colaiacovo gave the Blues the lead for good with a blast from the top of the circle. Brewer completed the three-goal spurt with a slap shot from the point to put St. Louis ahead 3-1.

Blues defencemen had recorded just three goals this season before Colaiacovo and Brewer scored 35 seconds apart. It was the first point for Brewer in 18 games this season.

St. Louis' record for fastest three goals was set on April 3, 1995, when the Blues scored them in 49 seconds against Toronto.

Ottawa took a 1-0 lead on Mike Fisher's goal midway through the first period. Jesse Winchester cut the Senators' deficit to 5-2 late in the third.

NOTES: The Senators have converted 12 of 49 power-play chances after an 0-for-17 start this season ... St. Louis G Jaroslav Halak sat out after allowing 19 goals in his last four starts ... Fisher broke out of a seven-game scoreless skid with his first-period goal. ... Blues winger Alex Steen played in his 400 NHL game. Ottawa forward Ryan Shannon skated in his 200th ... St. Louis has won all six meetings against Eastern Conference opponents this season ... The Senators return home to face the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night at Scotiabank Place (7:30 p.m., Rogers Sportsnet East, Team 1200).
