Recap


Blues 2, Ducks 1 (OT):
Chris Stewart scored 45 seconds into overtime as host St. Louis edged Anaheim for its third straight win.

Rookie Jake Allen made 27 saves and defenseman Kris Russell scored his first goal for the Blues, who avenged a 4-2 loss at Anaheim on Sunday - their lone setback in the last six games.

Vladimir Sobotka came down the left wing with the puck and sent it across the slot to Stewart in the right faceoff circle. Stewart cut into the slot and moved the puck to his backhand before sending it past Jonas Hiller and into the left side of the net.

Saku Koivu scored and Hiller made 19 saves as the Ducks dropped to 20-3-4. Anaheim has not lost in regulation since Feb. 25 (7-0-3).

The Ducks took the lead with 20 seconds left in the first period, when defenseman Bryan Allen unleashed a booming slap shot from the left point that glanced off Koivu in front of the crease and past Jake Allen. Russell forged a tie on the power play with 7:08 remaining in the second, taking a nice feed from rookie Vladimir Tarasenko and ripping a one-timer from above the right circle.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Stewart has scored five goals in the last three games, pushing his total to 14. … Jake Allen was coming off his first career shutout and has yet to allow more than three goals in a game. … Anaheim finished off a three-game road trip in St. Louis and will start a five-game homestand against the San Jose Sharks on Monday.
