    Jordan Binnington has had nothing but success since being called up from the American Hockey League.Binnington won his third straight start Womens Samuel Girard Jersey , Vladimir Tarasenko scored two goals and the Blues beat the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Saturday night.“It’s a good week,” Binnington said after his sixth NHL game.He’s 3-0 in three starts. The 25-year-old has allowed only two goals in those starts. Binnington shut out Philadelphia 1-0 on Monday and beat Montreal 4-1 Thursday.He made 21 saves on Saturday, the first time he has started consecutive games.“(Binnington)’s been amazing,” Tarasenko said. “Plays really confident. He gives us a lot of confidence, too.”Pat Maroon also scored for the Blues, who have won two straight for the fifth time this season.“I hate to use the word desperate times,” St. Louis interim coach Craig Berube said, “but we’ve got to win games. They’re in our division, and we’re trying to catch them.”Erik Condra scored for Dallas. Ben Bishop made 25 saves.Tarasenko scored in the first minute and Maroon added a first-period goal against Bishop, who won 3-1 at St. Louis four nights earlier. Veteran Jake Allen was in goal for the Blues in that game.“We’ve got to be ready when the puck is dropped,” Stars defenseman John Klingberg said.Binnington said the Blues’ fast start was a great help to him.“That’s two games in a row we’ve had a couple of goals in the first period Semyon Varlamov Jersey , and that helps everyone to feed off that. From there on, we just play our game, keep it simple.”Condra broke up Binnington’s chance for a second shutout, scoring his first goal with Dallas at 8:35 of the third period.“(Binnington)’s confident and he’s aggressive,” Berube said. “He looks pretty calm and cool in there.”The Stars have lost three of four, but are in third place in the Central Division.Tarasenko scored on the first shot of the game, 34 seconds in, from the right faceoff circle. Maroon’s backhand from the right of the net extended the Blues’ lead to 2-0 at 9:54.Dallas had a scoring chance midway through the second period, but Jason Spezza’s wrist shot from the top of the slot went over Binnington’s shoulder and off the crossbar.“It sounded like a post,” Binnington said. “Luckily for me it didn’t go in the net.”Spezza said the shot was frustrating when the Stars were trying to come back.“You like to see those ones go in to get some momentum,” he said.In the third Sergei Boikov Jersey , a shot blocked in front went to Condra at the right of the net and he scored on a short wrist shot. St. Louis challenged the goal looking for goaltender interference, but the goal stood.Tarasenko scored his second goal on the power play at 12:38. Oskar Sundqvist picked up his second assist of the game.“It was a big play by a big player,” Binnington said. “He’s an elite guy, an elite shot, and it was an important time for us to get a goal.”NOTES: Tarasenko has 15 career goals against Dallas. He also has seven assists for 22 points in 25 games. Over the last five seasons, he is tied with Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine for the most goals (14) vs. the Stars over the last five seasons. . Binnington was leading the AHL with a 2.08 goals against percentage when he was promoted from San Antonio. . The win improved the Blues’ record under interim coach Craig Berube to 12-12-1. . Condra was playing in his fifth game since being promoted from Texas of the AHL. His 40th NHL goal was his first since April 7, 2016. . Dallas D John Klingberg assisted on Condra’s goal and he has five points (one goal, four assists) in the last four games.UP NEXTBlues: Visit Washington on Monday for the second game of a four-game trip.Stars: Host Tampa Bay on Tuesday in the second of a six-game homestand. BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand has a knack for the net in overtime. A lucky bounce helped him get another winner for the Bruins on Sunday.Marchand scored 4:03 into the extra period after his shot deflected off an opponent’s skate, extending Boston’s points streak to seven games with a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche.Patrice Bergeron left the puck at the top of the right circle for Marchand, who skated into the slot and inadvertently used Matt Calvert’s skate to get the puck past goalie Semyon Varlamov.Marchand extended his franchise record with his 14th career overtime goal.“We got a lucky bounce, and we’ll take it Youth Jake McCabe Jersey ,” Marchand said.John Moore also scored and Jaroslav Halak made 35 saves for the Bruins, who improved to 4-0-3 in their last seven.Boston (31-17-8) moved one point ahead of rival Montreal for third place in the Atlantic Division and trails second-place Toronto by a point.“It was a needed point for us,” said Halak, who snapped a personal five-game skid. “The standing in our division, it’s tight, and it’s going to be a race until the end so we need to keep getting points right now.”Nathan MacKinnon scored his 29th goal for Colorado, tying Gabriel Landeskog for the team lead. Varlamov had 33 saves as the Avs lost their seventh in a row (0-3-3) but earned a point with a third straight overtime loss.“Tonight’s just a wrist shot that happens to hit our guy’s foot and changes direction,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said.Colorado (22-22-11) fell 4-3 in OT at Washington on Thursday before losing by the same score Saturday against the Islanders in New York.“This is kind of the luck we’ve been having with it,” Bednar said. “We’re working on it, we’re watching video on it, guys are paying attention to what we’re saying and defending hard 3-on-3.”Bednar called his team’s three-game points streak “a huge step forward Jason Pominville Jersey Kids ,” but the sentiment differed inside the Avs’ locker room.“It’s just not good enough,” Varlamov said. “We’ve got to find a way to win in overtime.”The Avalanche sit four points out of the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.MacKinnon gained control of the puck in the corner before charging the net and beating Halak high on the glove side for the game’s first goal with 32.1 seconds left in the first.Boston tied it on Moore’s goal nearly four minutes into the second. The veteran defenseman’s wrist shot from atop the left circle found its way past a screened Varlamov for his third goal of the season.MacKinnon’s perfectly-timed exit from the penalty box during a Bruins power play midway through the period resulted in a breakaway, but he hesitated and jammed the puck against Halak’s blocker.Moore nearly scored another when he dumped the puck into the Avs’ zone, only to have it take a wild bounce off the glass and zip past an unsuspecting Varlamov with 24.1 seconds left in the second. The referees waved it off, saying the puck went out of play after hitting the curved glass next to Boston’s bench.NOTES: Boston improved to 8-1-2 in the second of back-to-back games this season. Colorado dropped to 3-3-2. … The Avs had won four straight against the Bruins and were 12-2-1 in their previous 15 games in Boston. … Bruins RW David Pastrnak’s seven-game points streak (four goals, seven assists) was snapped. … Avalanche D Ian Cole (upper body) was sidelined a second straight game after his hit on Washington’s Evgeny Kuznetsov on Thursday evoked a bloody fight with Capitals RW Tom Wilson. … Boston D Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) was out for a second straight game but will skate Monday and could return Tuesday against Chicago. … Colorado D Mark Barberio (head) missed his sixth game in a row and C Vladislav Kamenev (shoulder) his 25th. … Bruins D Steven Kampfer re-joined Providence of the AHL on a conditional loan before the game.UP NEXTAvalanche: Host Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.Bruins: Host Blackhawks on Tuesday night.__
