ST. LOUIS, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Loui Eriksson scored the go-ahead goal in the third period Saturday, handing the Dallas Stars a 2-1 come-from-behind decision over St. Louis.

Trailing 1-0 entering the final frame, Jamie Benn drew the Stars even a minute into the period when he scored on assists from Mike Ribeiro and Brendan Morrow.

Eriksson put Dallas up for good 4 1/2 minutes later with Alex Steen off on an elbowing penalty.

Kari Lehtonen made the lead hold up, turning aside 35-of-36 for the Stars, who took both ends of a home-and-home series with the Blues.

St. Louis suffered its first regulation time home loss since last March, going 14-0-1 during the span.

B.J. Crombeen got the Blues' only goal and Jaroslav Halak made 21-of-23 saves while absorbing the loss.
