ST. LOUIS–For the first time, Alex Pietrangelo came to Enterprise Center as an opposing player Monday night when the Las Vegas Golden Knights arrived to take on the Blues.

Alec Martinez scored two goals and William Carrier added a goal and an assist, sparking the Vegas attack. Tomas Nosek, Jonathan Marchessault and Nicolas Hague also scored for Vegas, which has now won the last four contests against St. Louis.
Tyler Bozak scored for the Blues., who are are 2-8-1 in their last 11 games and have fallen into fifth place in the West. The Blues have been outscored 25-8 during a seven-game losing streak.
