Ducks Stay Winless, Get Crushed By St. Louis Blues

ST. LOUIS (AP) —  David Backes and Andy McDonald broke a 42-year-old franchise record by scoring 6 seconds apart early in the first period, and the St. Louis Blues went on to a 5-1 victory over the slow-starting Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

Backes scored at 3:53 when he sneaked down the left side after an Anaheim turnover and fired in David Perron’s centering pass.

T.J. Oshie won the ensuing faceoff at center ice, got the puck back from Patrik Berglund in the high slot and fed it to McDonald near the left circle.

McDonald beat Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller with a wrist shot at 3:59 to make it 2-0.

The two goals in a 6-second span broke the previous club record of 7 seconds apart set by Don McKenney and Frank St. Marseille on Jan. 24, 1968, against the Minnesota North Stars.
