ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - David Perron had a goal and an assist and Ben Bishop made 23 saves to help the St. Louis Blues beat Minnesota 5-1 on Wednesday night.

The preseason game ended the Wild's franchise-long home sellout streak at 409 games.

The crowd was announced at 16,219.

The Blues got goals from five different players. In addition to Perron, Alex Steen, Jay McClement, Philip McRae and Graham Mink chipped in goals for the Blues.

Martin Havlat scored 42 seconds into the game for the Wild in their exhibition opener.

Blues goaltender Ben Bishop gave up a goal on the first shot he faced, but stopped the next 23 Minnesota shots.

The teams will meet again Friday night in St. Louis.
