Mighty Ducks 5, Blues 5

December 28, 1997

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Jim Campbell scored with 4:18 remaining in regulation Saturday night to give the St. Louis Blues a 5-5 tie with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.

Brett Hull, the Blues’ leading scorer, left the game with a broken finger on his left hand after scoring two first-period goals. Hull, an eight-time All-Star and the 16th leading goal scorer in history, was injured late in the period. He sat out the remainder of the game and his status was not immediately known.

The Blues blew an early 3-1 lead and trailed 5-3 after Paul Kariya and Scott Young scored third-period goals for Anaheim.

But Geoff Courtnall scored his 16th goal at 6:09 and Campbell tied it with his 10th 9:33 later when he directed a centering pass from Pascal Rheaume past Mighty Ducks goalie Guy Hebert.

Anaheim’s Warren Rychel tripled his scoring output with two goals and Teemu Selanne extended his scoring streak to six games with his league-leading 31st goal.

Kariya also has a six-game scoring streak after getting his fifth goal, and now has at least one point in his last 18 regular season games dating back to last season.

Pierre Turgeon had a goal and assist for the Blues, giving him nine points in his last six games. Courtnall extended his scoring streak to seven games with his goal and two assists.
