LOUIS -- Opponents generally know that one of the biggest keys to beating the St. Louis Blues is to find a way to shut down their leading scorer, right winger Vladimir Tarasenko.Teams have more than Tarasenko to worry about now, however, because of the way the combination of left winger Jaden Schwartz, center Paul Stastny and right winger David Perron are playing since being placed on a line together.Shutting down that line will be the challenge for the Dallas Stars when they visit the Blues on Monday night.In his last seven games, Perron owns two goals and eight assists. Schwartz, in his last six games, scored five goals and assisted on three more. Stastny adds two goals and two assists in his last five games.The three forwards combined for all three of the Blues goals in regulation on Saturday night before Perron scored the only goal in the shootout in a 4-3 win over Minnesota.Perron recorded at least one point in his last seven games, the longest active streak in the NHL. He is second to Tarasenko in scoring for the Blues with six goals and nine assists this season.Its going good, Schwartz said. Were getting chances. Both guys (Stastny and Perron) are smart players, can make plays in tight areas, working hard for each other. Stas is doing a great job on faceoffs, hes taking a lot of (defensive) zone draws, winning a lot of faceoffs, doing a lot of little things.We havent been together for certain times in a game, or well switch wingers, but were getting some good reads off Perron.The play of the three forwards helped the Blues go 9-1-2 at home this season, including wins in their last four games.If you look at the way he (Schwartz) is scoring, and Paul too, I think both of them, theyre creating a lot of offense by going around the net, said defenseman Alex Pietrangelo. I think when were getting the puck there and were getting bodies in front, you have guys with that type of vision, theyre going to find the puck like that.Trying to find the right combination of his forwards is the challenge for Stars coach Lindy Ruff, who shuffles Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Jason Spezza and Patrick Sharp into different spots in the lineup.Right now, we just arent quite clicking to put a game away, Ruff said. Its going to start with the Seguins, the Benns, Spezza, Sharp, those guys. Until our top guys can push through and make a difference, our games are going to be a lot tighter and we re going to be a little up and down.The Stars scored just one or two goals in four of their last six games. They are coming off a 2-1 win at home over Vancouver as they begin a four-game road trip.Dallas made one roster move on Sunday, recalling defenseman Stephen Johns from the Texas Stars of the AHL. Johns played in 16 games with the Stars earlier this season before being sent to the minors.

The World Anti-Doping Agency provisionally suspended the Moscow Antidoping Center on Sunday, saying its operations must improve or a six-month ban on the facilitys accreditation will be imposed. Ivan Rodriguez Jersey . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. BRASILIA, Brazil -- While shes just 18 and the youngest soccer player at the Olympics for the U.S., Mallory Pugh displays the confidence of a seasoned veteran.The Colorado teenager holds the distinction of being the youngest American ever to score an Olympic goal. She got it on Tuesday night in Manaus, when the three-time defending champion United States won its group with a 2-all draw against Colombia.A couple of days later, the magnitude of the feat had sunk in -- at least as much as possible for someone who considers goals just part of the job.I got on the bus after the game and its kind of felt like any other goal, she said Thursday. But that night I was getting settled in and I was like, this is actually pretty cool. I scored a goal in the Olympics.Pugh was in Brasilia preparing with the United States for a quarterfinal match against Sweden on Friday.The recent graduate from Mountain Vista High School in Colorado made her debut at the senior level in the teams opening match this year, scoring her first goal in a 5-0 win over Ireland. Shes appeared in 16 matches overall with four goals.Her latest put the United States up 2-1 against Colombia. She blasted a shot through several defenders in the 59th minute.I was asking her when we were in ice bath: `Did that shot go through a bunch of peoples legs? And she told me, `I dont really know. I just hit it as hard as I could. Thats just kind of how she is. She does amazing things and its kind of like, `Well, I do these things all the time. So I guess its just every day, U.S. defender Becky Sauerbrunn said.Pugh said she remembers thinking: Its go time.The lead didnt stand, however, as Catalina Usme scored her second goal of the match on a free kick in the final moments to tie it.Pugh fiirst came to the attention of U. Nomar Mazara Jersey. S. coach Jill Ellis when she was 14. She has played on the under-17 and under-20 national teams, and turned heads when she captained the team that won the CONCACAF Womens U-20 Championship last year, earning the Golden Boot award for most goals with seven.She is the youngest of a youth movement for the senior U.S. national team. The average age of the team is 27.8, down from the 29.5-year average of the team that won the World Cup in Canada last summer.Several veterans, including Abby Wambach and Lauren Holiday, have since retired from the team that beat Japan 5-2 for the World Cup title. Sydney Leroux and Amy Rodriguez didnt vie for Olympic roster spots because of pregnancies.Pugh, however, is not the youngest-ever Olympian on the team. That distinction went to Cindy Parlow, who was about a month younger than Pugh is now when she played in the 1996 Atlanta Games.Following the Olympics, Pugh will compete for the U-20 national team (shes the captain) at the World Cup for that level of play in Papua New Guinea this November. She jokes that she still hasnt figured out how to pack for big tournaments in far-flung locales.When things settle down, she said she plans to enroll at UCLA in January. She didnt enroll for the fall because she didnt want to use a redshirt year.At least for now, shes all about soaking up the Olympic experience. Pugh would like nothing more than to help the U.S. win a fourth straight gold.I think for now were just all looking forward to just playing in these big-time games in the Olympics and just trying to push toward our main goal, she said.
