With a fourth win in five outings St Louis open up a six point gap at the top of the West and still hold a game in hand over their nearest rivals in Philadelphia and Los Angeles. The Blues took the lead in the first period when Cameron (7) found the twine, and in the second period both Hucul (2) and D Moore (8) nailed their powerplay chances; two of the ten opportunities St Louis had with the man advantage.
T Hampson (5) pulled one back in the final frame for Oakland who would then make it a one goal game when Hicke (26) scored, but the Seals cannot complete the comeback and suffer their sixth defeat in eight games.
