St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Doug Weight and Dennis Wideman each had a goal and two assists to help the St. Louis Blues to a 6-5 win over the Los Angeles Kings at Scottrade Center.

Keith Tkachuk and Lee Stempniak each had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who have won three straight games. Manny Legace finished the game with 27 saves.

Rob Blake had two goals while Michael Cammalleri added a goal and an assist for the Kings, who have dropped their last three games. Barry Brust made 15 saves before being pulled from the net after the second period.

Yutaka Fukufuji replaced Brust in net to start the third period and he finished the game with four saves on five shots. He became the first Japanese- born person to play in the NHL.

The Kings jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first period when Cammalleri scored his 17th goal of the season just 3:31 in.

St. Louis tied the game when Martin Rucinsky scored a power-play goal at the 8:24 mark of the first, but Tom Kostopoulos gave the Kings the lead back with 5:31 left in the first.

The Blues, though, tied the game with just 68 seconds left in the first on Jay McClement's fourth goal of the season.

LA made it a 3-2 game when Blake's shot from the right point beat a screened Legace just 1:37 into the second.

However, St. Louis tied the game when Tkachuk tipped in a pass on a 5-on-3 power play and took the lead when Stempniak snapped a wrist shot between the pads of Brust for a 4-3 lead halfway through the second.
