SUNRISE–By game’s end St. Louis had Florida singing the Blues as the visitors broke open a close game with a 6-3 win over the Panthers. After Mike Matheson tied the game for the Panthers early in the third, the Blues tied the game and the Blues followed the usual script most teams have in beating the Panthers
