Oskar Sundqvist returns to lineup, leads Blues to win over Vegas Golden Knights

Oskar Sundqvist was back in the lineup for the Blues on Thursday night, and the Blues snapped a three-game losing streak.

Sundqvist has missed the last six games since Nov. 27 but returned with a goal and an assist to lead the Blues to a 4-2 win over the Las Vegas Golden Knights at Enterprise Center.

Sundqvist scored his ninth goal of the season 1:34 into the second period to tie the game at 2-2 and the Blues took the lead on goals by Jaden Schwartz and Robert Thomas later in the period.

The four goals equaled the combined totalfor the Blues during their three-game losing streak.

Jordan Binnington had suffered two of those loses but he got the win over the Golden Knights by stopping 27 of 29 shots.

The Blues will host the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night as their four-game homestand continues. It’s the first trip this season by the Blackhawks to St. Louis.
