(AP) St. Louis: Playing inspired hockey to win over Blues fans, recently acquired right winger Daniel Alfredsson made a splash last night, scoring two goals and an assist in leading St. Louis to a 7-3 victory over conference rival, the San Jose Sharks. Just this week, Alfredsson had been traded by San Jose to St. Louis in exchange for Pavol Demitra. With the Blues holding a 3-1 advantage midway through the 2nd, Alfredsson broke down the right side and delivered a perfect feed to his new centerman, Joe Thornton, who slammed the puck home to give the Blues a two goal lead. Then early in the third, with the score 4-2 for St. Louis, Alfredsson scored his second goal in as many games when he split the Sharks defence after quick pass from Thornton through the neutral zone, to put the game out of reach. Alfredsson later closed out the gameâ€™s scoring with a breakaway goal off a long feed from Chris Pronger. Alfredsson was named the games first star. Vincent Lecavalier, Peter Schaefer, Steve Yzerman and Pronger also scored for the Blues. Demitra, Radek Bonk and Jaroslav Spacek replied for the Sharks in the losing cause. St. Louis travels to Colorado this evening for a match against the Avalanche.
