ST. LOUIS (AP) — Justin Faulk capped a four-goal, third-period rally with a late tally as the St. Louis Blues beat the Chicago Blackhawks, 4-3, on Saturday night.

Chicago led 1-0 heading into the third period and Brandon Saad and Patrick Kane scored in the first 4:16 of play, giving the Blackhawks a three-goal lead before the Blues staged a stirring rally.

St. Louis scored four times in a span of 12:54 to erase the deficit. Tyler Bozak, who scored twice for St. Louis, and Jacob de la Rose scored in a 12-second span to tie it at 3-3. It was the first NHL goal for de la Rose.

Faulk notched the game-winner at 17:34. Jordan Binnington made 19 saves for the win.

Saad scored the game’s first goal just 19 seconds into the second period for Chicago, which has lost four in a row.

Corey Crawford made 34 saves for Chicago.
