    THE ST. LOUIS BLUES ARE CURRENTLY LEADING THE N.H.L. WESTERN DIVISION BY 18 POINTS, AND CAME BACK IN THE SECOND PERIOD WITH A SLAP-SHOT FROM RIGHT-WING GARY SABOURIN, AND ASSISTS FROM RON SCHOCK AND BARCLAY PLAGER. HALFWAY, THROUGH THIS PERIOD THE BLUES SCORED AGAIN, WHEN RED BERENSON PUSHED THE PUCK PAST RANGERS GOALIE ED GIACOMIN.
