Blues snap skid, edge Wings in OT

DETROIT (AP) - Alexander Steen stuffed in a rebound 52 seconds into overtime, lifting the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 slump-stopping victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.

St. Louis snapped a five-game losing streak that followed a 6-1 start.

The Red Wings had won a season-high three straight, a stretch that started with a 5-1 victory over St. Louis, and had beaten the Blues four games in a row at home.

Detroit blew a two-goal lead in the first period and chances to win in the third period on a pair of power plays.

St. Louis goaltender Jake Allen, making his first NHL start in his second game in the league, made 15 saves. Jaroslav Halak missed his fifth straight game with a groin strain, an injury he had in a Feb. 1 loss against Detroit.

Jimmy Howard made 21 saves for the Red Wings.

Allen gave up a goal on the first shot he faced, getting fooled by fellow rookie Tomas Tatar's deke in front of the net that set up his first score of the season 2:17 into the game. Drew Miller scored his first goal of the year 5-plus minutes later to give the Red Wings a 2-0 lead.

Patrik Berglund's short-handed goal late in the first period pulled St. Louis within a goal. Rookie Vladimir Tarasenko's sixth goal of the season tied it at 7:12 of the second period and Chris Stewart put the Blues ahead 3-2 less than 2 minutes later.

Pavel Datsyuk tied it again with his sixth goal midway through the second period, scoring from behind the net on a shot that went off Allen's left leg.

The Red Wings had two power plays in the third period, but couldn't take advantage of either opportunity with the extra skater. They had just six shots combined over the second and third periods after getting 11 on net in the first.

NOTES: Red Wings F Johan Franzen missed the game with a hip injury and Patrick Eaves replaced him in the lineup. ... Detroit and St. Louis played for the fourth time in 13 games during the lockout-shortened schedule and will meet for a fifth and final scheduled April 7 in Detroit. ... Tatar played in his fifth game this year for the Red Wings and the 14th of his career. ... The Blues recalled Allen from Peoria on Tuesday. ... St. Louis has power-play goals in each of its last seven games. ... Seven-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom got a standing ovation when he was shown on the videoboards, attending his first game since retiring last summer.
