Perron nets hat trick as Blues trounce Thrashers

Sep 27, 2008 - 3:38 AM ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- The St. Louis Blues put on quite an offensive display against the Atlanta Thrashers.

David Perron recorded a hat trick and added an assist to lead the Blues to a 9-4 preseason triumph over the Thrashers on Friday.

Lee Stempniak scored two goals and set up another while Brad Boyes added two tallies and two assists for St. Louis, which went 3-for-8 on the power play. The duo has combined for six goals and five assists in the Blues' two exhibition games.

Andy McDonald collected five assists to give him seven points this preseason, Paul Kariya and Patrik Berglund each registered a goal and an assist and defenseman Alex Pietrangelo - the fourth overall pick in this past June's draft - set up a pair of tallies for the Blues. The 18-year-old Pietrangelo has four assists in two exhibition contests.

Brett Sterling scored twice while Todd White and Spencer Machacek each added a goal for Atlanta. Colby Armstrong and Riley Holzapfel notched two assists apiece.

Manny Legace allowed three goals on 15 shots over two periods for the Blues before being replaced by offseason acquisition Chris Mason, who made five saves in the third.

New Thrashers coach John Anderson kept Johan Hedberg in net for the duration. The veteran Swede faced 37 shots, turning aside 28.
