DETROIT — Magnus Paarjarvi, Barret Jackman, Kevin Shattenkirk and Jay Bouwmeester scored to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night.

Alex Steen added two assists and Jaroslav Halak made 22 saves for the Blues, who had lost their previous two games.

Bouwmeester got his fourth goal, 2:14 into the third, when his shot from the left point went in off the Red Wings' Riley Sheahan.

The game was tied at 1 after the first 20 minutes despite St. Louis outshooting Detroit 18-7.

Paarjarvi opened the scoring with 8:47 left in the opening period when he banked one in off Howard's leg on a wraparound from behind the net. It was Paarjarvi's fourth goal.
