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.
