ST. LOUIS (AP) — Vladimir Tarasenko had two goals and two assists and got in a rare fight Tuesday night, helping the St. Louis Blues to an 8-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.
Brayden Schenn also had two goals and two assists, and Jake Allen stopped 26 shots for the NHL-leading Blues (16-5-1).
Tarasenko’s fight came in the second period. In just the third scrap of his six-year career, Tarasenko tangled with Matt Benning and landed a solid right hand much to the crowd’s delight.

CANUCKS 5,
FLYERS 2
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brock Boeser scored twice and Daniel Sedin inched closer to a major NHL milestone, leading Vancouver past slumping Philadelphia.
Sedin had a goal and an assist to leave him four points shy of 1,000 for his career. Sven Baertschi scored a power-play goal, Henrik Sedin had two assists and Loui Eriksson added an empty-net goal and an assist for the Canucks.
Jacob Markstrom made 35 saves to earn his sixth win of the season as Vancouver improved to 10-8-3 with its second victory in six games.
Ivan Provorov and Jakub Voracek scored for the Flyers, who lost their fifth straight and fell below .500 (8-9-4) for the first time this season.

STARS 3,
CANADIENS 1
DALLAS (AP) — Devin Shore and Jason Spezza scored 59 seconds apart late in the second period to lift Dallas over Montreal.
Shore had no goals in the first 19 games this season, but scored for the second straight game to tie it 1-all at 18:22 of the second. Spezza, who also has scored in consecutive games after netting only one goal in the first 19, put in a rebound just less than a minute later.
Shore had an assist on Spezza’s goal. So did Tyler Seguin, who scored into an empty net with 27 seconds to play.
