Blues Win in Overtime

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Vladimir Sobotka

scored from close range at 2:16 of overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 5-4

victory over the Minnesota Wild last night.

St. Louis is 5-1, its best start since

winning seven of its first eight in 1997-98. Coming off a 4-3 victory in Dallas

on Saturday night, the Blues improved to 3-0 at home.

Minnesota's Dany Heatley forced the

overtime, tying it at 4 when he batted the puck out of the air with 4:08 left

in regulation for his fourth goal of the season. The Wild have lost three

straight.

Chris Stewart, Barret Jackman, Wade Redden

and Patrik Berglund also scored for St. Louis, and Brian Elliott, getting his

first home start, made 12 saves.

Zach Parise had two goals and an assist

for Minnesota after also scoring twice in the Wild's 5-3 loss in Detroit on

Friday night. Mikko Koivu added a goal, and Niklas Backstrom stopped 32 shots.
