Stewart stays hot with OT goal; Blues beat Ducks 2-1 to finish 3-0 homestand

ST. LOUIS - Chris Stewart scored 45 seconds into overtime and rookie Jake Allen made 27 saves, helping the St. Louis Blues end the Anaheim Ducks' five-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory on Saturday night.

Stewart, who assisted on the Blues' other goal by Kris Russell, has seven goals and seven assists in his last seven games, including two-goal outings the previous two games. He took the lone shot of the extra period, faking Jonas Hiller with a forehand in front and then finding plenty of space with a backhander for his 14th goal of the season.

Saku Koivu scored on a first-period deflection for the Pacific Division-leading Ducks, who are 13-2-2 in their last 17 games to tie for the best run in franchise history. Anaheim outshot St. Louis 28-20 in regulation.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
