Jan. 21, 2012 at 11:56 PM

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- David Backes scored twice in the third period Saturday, propelling the St. Louis Blues to a 4-2 verdict over Buffalo and their fourth straight win.

Backes' first tally gave the Blues a 3-1 lead midway through the final frame as he tapped in a T.J. Oshie shot that slowly trickled behind Sabres goalie Ryan Miller.

The Blues captain added an empty-netter while B.J. Crombeen and David Perron also scored for St. Louis.

Jaroslav Halak earned the victory with 19 stops.

Buffalo continued its futility away from home, adding to a club-record 12-game road losing skid.

Tyler Myers and Mike Weber scored while Miller yielded three goals on 26 shots in the Sabres' loss.
