Scott Young scored his fourth goal in three games as the St. Louis Blues beat the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim 5-1 on Sunday.

"If the first three games are any indication, he's going to be one of our go-to guys," Blues captain Chris Pronger said. "He was a big part of our offense last year, and he's scored some big goals for us this year already. With Pierre and Dallas looking for him, he's going to get a lot of chances. So if he stays patient and finds the seams, they'll find him."

The Ducks' big guns, Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne, have not had a goal or an assist in Anaheim's first two games.

"We just haven't generated anything," Kariya said. "When we have gotten opportunities, we're not making passes. We're just off. We're not creating the chances we should be, and that's a problem. I don't have the answers for that right now."

Ladislav Nagy, Turgeon, Jochen Hecht and Pronger also scored goals for the Blues, who got two assists each from Lubos Bartecko, Drake and Sean Hill.

The crowd of 11,134 was the smallest in the 270 regular-season games the Mighty Ducks have played at the Pond since the team entered the NHL in 1993. Friday night, the Mighty Ducks failed to sell out the home-opener for the first time in club history.
