COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Derek Dorsett's third-period goal lifted the Columbus Blue Jackets over the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Tuesday night.

A potential tying goal by St. Louis with 1.8 seconds left in regulation was disallowed. A scrum in the final seconds resulted in a pileup in the crease. Video replays showed the Blues' David Perron falling on top of a prone Blue Jackets goalie Steve Mason, and then shoving the puck into the net.

After a lengthy review, the goal was disallowed.

Mason had 31 saves and James Wisniewski scored a power-play goal with 0.1 seconds left in the first period for Columbus.

David Backes picked up his 17th goal for the Blues, who had a four-game win streak snapped.
