    WINNIPEG www.sabresshoponline.com , Manitoba (AP) One impressive burst was enough for the St. Louis Blues.Vladimir Tarasenko scored two goals, and the Blues used a big push in the second period to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-2 on Friday night.St. Louis had dropped seven of its last eight meetings against Winnipeg, including all five games last season. The Blues and Jets split a pair of shutouts in mid-December.”This team has pretty much spanked us around the last three years,” said Jake Allen, who had 20 saves for St. Louis. ”They beat us every time last year. We had a win at the start of the year, but they pretty much spanked us both those games so we needed to show them that we’re not intimidated.”Tarasenko, Patrik Berglund and Alexander Steen scored in a 7 1/2-minute span of the second, helping St. Louis open a 3-0 lead. Tarasenko added his 23nd goal in the third after Winnipeg had pulled within one. Brayden Schwartz scored into an empty net and had an assist.Kyle Connor and Patrik Laine scored for the Jets (32-14-9), who lost an eight-game point streak (6-0-2). The result also stopped Winnipeg’s home point streak at 10 games.”Nobody is in a good mood and you’re angry with it. You don’t like to get beat like that,” Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. ”We got beat in St. Louis and played one hell of a game. We weren’t any good tonight and didn’t deserve to win the game.”St. Louis (34-20-3) was coming off a 6-1 victory over Colorado on Thursday night.Connor Hellebuyck made 22 saves for the Jets, who were playing their fifth game of a 10-game homestand (3-1-1).Winnipeg had Mark Scheifele back on the ice for his first game since a Dec. 27 upper-body injury. The top-line center had missed 16 games.”Had to shake off a little bit of rust early, but felt better and better as the game went on and got more comfortable Buffalo Sabres T-Shirts Womens ,” Scheifele said.The Blues went ahead to stay when Brayden Schenn got the puck in the corner and passed it out to Tarasenko in the circle, and he fired a high shot past Hellebuyck’s blocker side at 4:18. It was Tarasenko’s first goal in seven games.Berglund redirected in a shot by defenseman Robert Bortuzzo at 10:13, and then Steen one-timed a rebound that went by Hellebuyck at 11:39.Connor got the Jets on the board with 2:27 left in the period when his one-timer from the slot went off Blues defenseman Vince Dunn and past Allen for his 18th goal.The Jets had a pair of power plays midway through the third period and Laine made good on the second one, blasting a high shot past Allen at 11:39. But Tarasenko responded with his second of the game just over a minute later.”(Laine) shoots the puck harder than anyone in the league,” Allen said. ”I’d put him up there against anyone. It’s not even close.”(His shot) was sort of through a few bodies so I didn’t really get a good pick up on it, but still he’s got the laser.”With the Jets on the power play, Schwartz scored his 17th of the season into the empty net to make it 5-2.NOTES: The Blues’ record when leading after two periods this season climbed to 26-0-1.UP NEXTBlues: Host Pittsburgh on Sunday.Jets: Host the New York Rangers on Sunday. CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Down by three goals going into the third period, the Calgary Flames were far from done.Mark Giordano had a goal and two assists, and Calgary scored five straight times in the third to rally past the Colorado Avalanche 6-5 on Thursday night.With the game tied 4-all, Giordano scored the go-ahead goal at 13:47 when he jumped up into the rush, took a pass from Mikael Backlund and snapped a shot over the blocker of goaltender Semyon Varlamov.“If you’re coming in late and their forwards are scrambling back Buffalo Sabres Hoodies Womens , sometimes things open up,” said Giordano, who has two goals and 12 assists this season. “I was happy (Backlund) found me there, it was a good spot to shoot from.”Backlund, Elias Lindholm, Sean Monahan, James Neal and Michael Frolik also scored for the Flames (8-5-1), who have won three straight. Matthew Tkachuk added three assists.It’s already the fourth time this season the Flames have come back to win when trailing after two periods.Colin Wilson, Vladislav Kamenev, Sheldon Dries, Carl Soderberg and Gabriel Landeskog scored for Colorado (7-4-2), which has lost three of four.It was the first career goal for both Kamenev and Dries.“Five goals in the third is a lot. Give credit to them Buffalo Sabres Hats Womens , but we definitely had a hand in letting them come back,” said Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon, who was held off the scoresheet and ended up minus-3.Trailing 4-1 after two periods, Calgary began its comeback 47 seconds into the third on Lindholm’s power-play goal, his team-leading ninth goal of the season.The man advantage was the result of a charging major on Ian Cole late in the second period after his heavy hit crumpled Mark Jankowski as he was looking back for a pass. Shaken up, Jankowski went to the dressing room.He returned to sit on the bench in the third, but did not play. After the game, he was deemed healthy.It was the response to the hit from Sam Bennett, who immediately fought Cole, that players pointed to as the turning point.“He’s a feisty little kid. He definitely knows how to throw them,” Backlund said. “That gave the team some momentum and some energy. Great job by him stepping up for the team and for Janko. It brought a lot of energy into the room going into the third.”The Flames drew within one at 5:21 when Monahan deflected Noah Hanifin’s point shot.The Saddledome crowd then roared at 10:52 when Neal got the puck in the slot and ripped a shot past Varlamov for his third goal and a tie game.“It felt good, obviously Custom Buffalo Sabres Jerseys , for me,” said Neal, who had been off to a slow start with just two goals in his first 13 games. “Personally, I want to score goals, you want to help the team win. It’s been a little bit of tough sledding here at the start, but I’ve been through it before. You just try to stick with it and you get rewarded like I did tonight.”The sequence leading up to Neal’s goal began when rookie defenseman Juuso Valimaki caught Matt Calvert with a body check at the blue line, turning the puck over.“He timed it perfect and to be able to keep the puck in the zone, all in one shot. That was a real turning point, too,” Giordano said. “Really put them back on their heels and then we kept going.”Just more than a minute after Giordano’s go-ahead goal, Frolik made it a two-goal lead, one-timing Tkachuk’s feed for his sixth goal.The Avalanche got a power-play goal from Landeskog at 18:57 to set up a harrowing finish.Landeskog’s goal first appeared to be Wilson’s second of the game before the Colorado captain was credited with his 11th of the season.
