Here is post game reaction from the Blues locker room after the game.

It was just the second multigoal game of Grant's 229-game career and first since Oct. 20, 2017.

John Gibson made 37 saves as the Ducks snapped a five-game losing streak.

Vince Dunn scored and Jordan Binnington made 21 saves for the Blues, who had their nine-game points streak snapped with their first regulation loss since October 26.

Grant's second of the game thwarted a Blues rally by restoring Anaheim's two-goal lead with an unassisted short-handed goal at 7:20 of the second. Grant stole Justin Faulk's pass to create a breakaway and beat Binnington with a backhander between his legs to make it 3-1.

Grant finished the hat trick with an empty-netter with 1:39 left.

It was the fourth short-handed goal of the season for the Ducks. The Blues have given up three.

Getzlaf gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead four minutes into the game, finishing on a perfectly executed give-and-go with Max Jones. Getzlaf has 38 points in 42 career games against St. Louis.

Grant made it 2-0 at the 5:41 mark, capitalizing on Alex Pietrangelo's turnover that was caused by Nicolas Deslauriers' check. It was Grant's first goal in six games.

Dunn got the Blues on the board with a wrister from the top of the right circle for his third goal of the season at the 3:14 mark of the second period.
