He was seeing the puck well. He made a lot of big saves, kept us in it.”David Perron scored the tying goal in the third period for the Blues, and Jordan Binnington — making his fourth straight start and fourth of his career — finished with 23 saves. St. Louis had won three straight and five of its previous seven.“We fought back, it was a tight game,” St. Louis’ Alex Pietrangelo said. “There wasn’t a whole lot of playmaking on either side … Those are the ones we just got to get points right now.”On the winner, Filppula jumped on the ice on a line change San Jose Sharks Hoodies Authentic , got a pass from Mathew Barzal and skated in on Binnington before beating him from the right side for his 10th.“It was a good (line) change, we got a 2-on-1 right away and just thought I’d try to shoot it,” Filppula said. “I was happy to see the puck go in.”Perron tied it at 6:07 of the third as he got a pass from Ryan O’Reilly from behind the net, and put it past Lehner for his team-leading 17th. It extended Perron’s career-high point streak to 12 games, giving him six goals and 15 assists in the stretch.“It was good to put one in and get a point out of it,” Perron said.Trailing 1-0, the Blues picked up their intensity in the second period, outshooting the Islanders 18-7.Lehner, who had won a career-best eight straight before taking the loss in a 2-1 defeat to the New York Rangers on Saturday, was stellar in keeping St. Louis off the scoreboard.

Lehner then gloved Oskar Sundqvist’s shot from the left circle three minutes later and a tip by Schwartz shortly after.Sundqvist was thwarted on consecutive attempts in front with just over eight minutes remaining, and Lehner gloved a shot by Vladimir Tarasenko from between the circles 30 seconds later.“We’re playing as a team, we’re playing for each other San Jose Sharks Hats Authentic ,” Lehner said. “Everyone throws themselves in, everyone tries to get in front of the puck, everyone does everything they can. That’s what we got to keep on doing.”Binnington stopped a tip by Islanders rookie Devon Toews with a little more than two minutes to go in the second to keep it a one-goal game.St. Louis, outshot 11-5 in the first period, didn’t get its first shot on goal until 7:47 in, when Lehner stopped a tip try by Zach Sanford from between the circles.The Islanders got on the scoreboard about a minute later, seconds after Anders Lee hit a goalpost and the puck ended up in the netting on the outside.
