Playing for their postseason lives, the Ducks came back from a 1-0 deficit behind two Jason Blake goals to survive St. Louis on Wednesday, 2-1.

Blake scored the game-winner at the 1:50 mark of the third period, deflecting Lubomir Visnovsky's shot past Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak. Saku Koivu also assisted.

The victory pushed the Ducks' point total to 81, matching Calgary for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Flames have 10 games remaining to the Ducks' 12.

Ray Emery, making his first start in goal as a Duck, stopped 30 of 31 shots. He made his Ducks debut Sunday, playing the third period in a loss to Phoenix.
