6 St. Louis Blues score goals in 6-1 rout of Maple Leafs (The Associated Press)

All night it seemed the St. Louis Blues had an extra player on the ice. St. Louis swarmed, scored and out-classed Toronto at every turn, with six Blues scoring goals in a 6-1 rout on Saturday night. ”There was no effort,” interim coach Peter Horachek said as the Leafs lost for the 28th time in 35 games. ”There’s no real excuses for it, so I’m not going to make any.” Jori Lehtera and Alexander Steen each had three assists for the Blues (41-19-5), who snapped a two-game skid and moved to within two points of the Central Division-leading Nashville Predators.
