Jordan Kyrou scored a power-play goal with 28 seconds left to lift the St. Louis Blues over the visiting Dallas Stars 2-1 Sunday.

Blues center Ryan O'Reilly tied the game with 46 seconds left on a 6-on-4 power play with goaltender Jordan Binnington pulled for an extra attacker. The Stars took a penalty on that scoring play, giving Kyrou the chance to win the game with another man advantage.

Binnington made 26 saves for the Blues, who extended their home-ice point streak to 12 games at 11-0-1.

Jason Robertston scored and Braden Holtby made 29 saves for the Stars, whose four-game winning streak was snapped.

Robertson extended his point streak to seven games. He has four goals and six assists during that span.

The Blues outshot the Stars 10-7 in the tight-checking first period. The Stars picked up their offensive pace in the second period, outshooting the Blues 12-5 while taking a 1-0 lead.

Miro Heiskanen cut through the right circle and slid a cross-ice pass to Robertson, who scored a sharp-angle goal at 9:16 of the period.

Shortly after that, Jamie Benn nearly doubled the Stars' lead from the left doorstep, but Binnington denied him. Michael Raffl had a 2-on-1 shorthanded rush, but Binnington stopped his blast from the right wing.

After the Stars just missed on several power-play chances early in the third period, Holtby stopped Brayden Schenn breaking down the middle unchecked.

The Blues stepped up their pressure, but Holtby stopped Robert Thomas' follow shot with a left skate save, made saves on two Torey Krug slap shots and stopped Kyrou's break-in from the right wing.

The Blues finally broke through at 6-on-4 when the puck caromed off the end boards to O'Reilly, who was standing squarely in front of the net.

Then another lucky bounce decided the game. Kyrou attempted to center the puck from the left side, but the puck caromed off Stars defenseman Jani Hakanpaa and into the net.
