McDonald, McClement lead Blues past Flames

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Andy McDonald and Jay McClement scored

in a 51-second span midway through the third period and Chris

Mason made 33 saves in the St. Louis Blues' 3-2 victory over the

Calgary Flames on Friday night.

T.J. Oshie added a short-handed goal to help St. Louis jump into

ninth place in the Western Conference, two points behind

Nashville for the final playoff spot.

Mason is 15-6-5 in his last 26 games with a 1.99 goals-against

average.

Mike Cammalleri and Dustin Boyd scored for Calgary, which is

three points ahead of Vancouver for the Northwest Division lead.

McDonald tied the score 2-2 at 9:24 of the third period. Brad

Boyes sent a cross-ice pass that left McDonald with an empty net

to shoot at with Miikka Kiprusoff trapped out of position.

McClement then put the Blues in front, curling out of the corner

and scoring on a harmless-looking shot that somehow trickled

past Kiprusoff.
