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.
