Pierre Luc-Dubois scored the overtime winner to lift the visiting Winnipeg Jets over the St. Louis Blues 4-3 Sunday.

Kyle Connor had a goal and two assists and Nikolaj Ehlers had a goal and an assist for the Jets, who rallied from a 2-1 third-period deficit to win for the third time in their last four games.

Mark Scheifele also scored for the Jets and Connor Hellebuyck made 28 saves.

Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and two assists and Brayden Schenn had a goal and an assist for the Blues. David Perron also scored and Jordan Binnington made 33 saves.

Perron put the Blues up 1-0 with a power-play goal with 3:12 left in the first period. Tarasenko made a cross-ice pass to Perron for a blast from the left circle.

The Jets tied the game with a 2-on-0 break for Ehlers and Luc-Dubois. Connor trigged the opportunity with an outlet pass, then Dubois drew Binnington’s commitment before settling up Ehlers for the tap-in at 10:51 of the second period.

With 26 seconds left in the second period, the Blues took a 2-1 lead with a 3-on-2 rush. Schenn rushed up the left wing and he set up Tarasenko with pass to the right wing.

Scheifele tied the game 2-2 with 13:30 left in regulation time, tapping the puck into the open side of the net during a goal-mouth scramble.

After the Blues turned the puck over in their own zone, the Jets took a 3-2 lead with 12:27 left in regulation time. Richard Pionk set up Connor’s snap shot from the left circle.

With Binnington off the ice for an extra attacker, Schenn tied the game 3-3 with a snap shot from the slot with 2:11 left in regulation time.

The Jets controlled the play for most of overtime and prevailed on a 2-on-1 break, with Ehlers feeding Luc-Dubois.

Jets forward Andrew Copp left the game early in the third period after suffering a head-high hit on a mid-ice collision with Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist.
