ST. LOUIS -- Bill Guerin scored 1:09 into overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues to a 2-1 victory over the Red Wings on Friday.

Guerin, coming off an appearance at the All-Star game earlier in the week, scored his team-leading 21st goal as he gathered a rebound off a shot from Doug Weight. The puck came off the pads of Detroit goalie Chris Osgood and Guerin slapped it into the goal from about five-feet away.

It was St. Louis' fourth straight win and its seventh in eight games. The Wings have now lost three consecutive for the third time this season.

Detroit peppered St. Louis goalie Manny Legace throughout the second half of the third period. The Wings took at least four shots from inside or just outside the crease, each time being denied. Legace finished with 28 saves.

The teams traded goals less than two-minutes apart midway through the second period.

Ryan Johnson returned to the ice after sitting out 12 games with a separated shoulder and notched his fifth goal of the season eight-minutes into the second period. Jamal Meyers carried the puck deep into Detroit territory before wristing a shot at Osgood. The rebounded landed at Johnson's feet and he slipped it past Osgood to give the Blues a 1-0 lead.

It lasted 1:56 before Deroit's Johan Franzen tied the score. St. Louis defensemen Jamie Rivers and Dennis Wideman went to clear the puck just in front of the net only to hit sticks and leave the puck for Franzen, who beat Legace for his sixth goal.
