Winter Classic Magic Doesn’t Carry Over for Blues


Winter Classic Magic Doesn’t Carry Over for Blues

Edmundson and Tarasenko Goals Not Enough for Blues

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jeff Skinner put Carolina ahead in the third period and Derek Ryan scored twice, helping the Hurricanes beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 on Thursday night.

Skinner scored a power-play goal with 6:08 remaining to make it 3-2, and then Ryan added an empty-netter for his second of the game with 1:19 left. Skinner’s goal was his 14th of the season.

Jay McClement also scored for Carolina, which ended a two-game losing streak. Cam Ward made 21 saves.

Joel Edmundson and Vladimir Tarasenko scored for St. Louis, which was coming off a 4-1 win over Chicago in the Winter Classic on Monday. Jake Allen made 25 saves but lost to Carolina for the first time in four starts.

McClement, a former member of the Blues, tied it at 2 with 8:58 left in the second period. That came after Tarasenko scored his team-high 19th goal of the season midway through the second.

Notes: Carolina RW Ty Rattie, claimed on waivers Wednesday from the Blues, played regular shifts in his first game with his new team. Rattie was a healthy scratch in his last 15 games in St. Louis. … The Hurricanes have committed a league-low 105 penalties this season. … The teams will meet twice the season, the final contest coming April 8 in Carolina. … St. Louis D Carl Gunnarsson missed the contest after injuring his lower-body injury in the third period of the Winter Classic.
