Minnesota's 3-1 win over the Blues was particularly special for Eric Staal.

The veteran pivot recorded his 800th NHL point Sunday, banking an assist on Mikael Granlund's empty netter.

Staal has enjoyed a rebirth of sorts in his first year in Minnesota, scoring a team-leading 19 points so far this season.

The 32-year-old, drafted second overall in 2003, is the only player from his class to reach the milestone.
