ST. LOUIS (AP) -- T.J. Oshie scored twice, defenseman Ian Cole added his first goal of the season and Jaroslav Halak made 20 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.
St. Louis won for the sixth time in eight games. The Blues have at least one point in 13 of the last 15 games and improved to 10-2-3 under Ken Hitchcock, who took over for Davis Payne on Nov. 6.
The Ducks have won three times in the last 19 games.
Chris Porter also scored for the Blues, who have won their last four home games against Anaheim by a combined 24-9 score.
Cole, who also had an assist, broke a 1-1 tie at 7:39 of the second period with his second goal in 37 career games. He converted on a rebound of a shot by Matt D'Agostini. Cole, the 18th overall pick in the 2007 draft, was a healthy scratch in the Blues' 3-2 win over Detroit on Tuesday.
Halak improved to 5-7-3 after a rough 1-6 start to the season.
Bobby Ryan and Devante Smith-Pelly scored for the Ducks....
