Blues rough up Wild


ST. LOUIS — Right wing T.J. Oshie recorded the first hat trick of his career, leading the St. Louis Blues to a 5-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night.

Oshie scored two goals in the first period, including one on a breakaway when the Blues were short-handed, and then added his third when he deflected a shot by defenseman Jay Bouwmeester at 7:18 of the third period.

The three goals gave Oshie a career-high 21 this season, the fifth Blues player with 20 or more.
