Hull Leads Blues Past Dallas 7-1

DALLAS -- Brett Hull scored one goal and set up three others as the St Louis Blues erupted for seven goals to end a three-game losing streak with a 7-1 rout of the Dallas Stars.


Pavol Demitra scored twice Monday in a four-goal second period. Jamie McLennan stopped 25 shots for the Blues, who had scored a total of three goals during their three-game skid.


Al MacInnis and Scott Pellerin each came up with short-handed goals for St. Louis, and Kelly Chase and Geoff Courtnall added third-period tallies to complete the blowout.


Dave Reid spoiled McLennon's shutout with his goal at 7:15 in the second to bring Dallas within one at 2-1.


But St Louis responded with five unanswered goals as the Blues pulled within one point of first-place Detroit in the Central Division and tied the Red Wings with a league-leading 12 victories.


Flames 1, Blackhawks 1. In Chicago, Jeff Hackett came within a minute of posting a shutout but Andrew Cassels scored with 56 seconds left to lift the Calgary Flames into a 1-1 tie with Chicago.


Cassels took a pass from Marty McInnis at the left goal post and flipped the puck between Hackett's pads to knot the game.


Gary Suter scored for Chicago just over three minutes into the contest and the score remained 1-0 for the next 56 minutes until Cassels ruined Hackett's near perfect night.


Hackett finished the game with 29 saves. Dwayne Roloson made 18 saves for the Flames, who stopped a four-game losing streak but remained winless on the road (0-6-3).


Philadelphia left wing John LeClair, who had four goals and four assists to lead the Flyers to a 3-0 record last week, was named the NHL Player of the Week on Monday.
