DETROIT -- The St. Louis Blues got goals from four different players, including three by defenseman, and beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Monday night at Joe Louis Arena.
Left winger Magnus Paarjarvi and defensemen Barret Jackman, Kevin Shattenkirk and Jay Bouwmeester scored for St. Louis (33-10-5), which had lost its previous two games. Left winger Alex Steen and center Derek Roy each had two assists and Jarislav Halak made 22 saves.
Right winger Gustav Nyquist scored for Detroit (21-18-10). Goaltender Jimmy Howard stopped 22 shots before being replaced by goalie Petr Mrazek midway through the second period because of a lower-body injury. Mrazek made 13 saves.
Jackman and Shattenkirk scored 1:20 apart early in the second period to put the Blues up 3-1. Jackman broke a 1-1 tie with a one-timed screened shot from the high slot 1:01 into the second with the teams playing 4-on-4. It was Jackman's third goal.
Shattenkirk's goal was on the power play and came 2:21 into the period on a screened shot from the left point. It was Shattenkirk's seventh goal.
Bouwmeester got his fourth goal, 2:14 into the third, when his shot from the left point went in off Red Wings center Riley Sheahan.
The score was tied at 1 after the first 20 minutes despite St. Louis outshooting Detroit 18-7.
Paarjarvi opened the scoring with 8:47 left in the first period when he banked one in off Howard's leg on a wraparound from behind the net. It was Paarjarvi's fourth goal of the season.
Nyquist's power-play goal tied the score with 26 seconds remaining in the first. He controlled and put in a loose puck during a goal-mouth scramble for Nyquist's sixth goal of the season and his first in nine games.
Halak made a spectacular point-blank save on right winger Todd Bertuzzi 9:28 into the first period.
