ANAHEIM — Brayden Schenn, Oskar Sundqvist and Zach Sanford each scored a power-play goal for the St. Louis Blues in a 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Wednesday.

Jordan Binnington made 27 saves after being pulled in his last start for the Blues (13-8-2), who swept the two-game set following a 5-4 win here Monday.

Max Comtois and Rickard Rakell scored, and John Gibson made 18 saves for the Ducks (6-12-5), who have lost eight straight games (0-6-2).

Sundqvist gave St. Louis a 1-0 lead at 14:45 of the first period. David Perron passed the puck from the left point to Sundqvist, who spun and tucked a shot inside the right post for his first career goal on the power play.

Schenn scored his team-leading 11th goal on a slap shot from the right point seven seconds into a power play to make it 2-0 at 10:02 of the second period.

Comtois cut it to 2-1 at 14:13 of the second period. Troy Terry hit the post from in close, and Binnington was unable to secure the puck before Comtois skated in and pushed it across the goal line.

Sanford extended the lead to 3-1 at 13:08 of the third period. He has six points (four goals, two assists) in his past three games.

It was the first time St. Louis had capitalized three times with the man-advantage in a game since Oct. 24, 2019, when it went 3-for-4 in a 5-2 win against the Los Angeles Kings.

Rakell scored with 8.7 seconds left and Gibson pulled for the extra skater to make it 3-2.
