ST. LOUIS - Alexander Steen scored his league-leading 14th goal, Brian Elliott stopped 18 shots for his 100th career win and the St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 Thursday night.

The Blues have won five of six and are 6-1-1 at home. Calgary has lost four of five and eight of 11.

Maxim Lapierre and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for St. Louis.

Steen has a point in a career-best nine games in a row. He has scored in all but two games this season.

He scores 50 goals, they go in, they go in, and they go in. And I think, 'Why can't I do that?'
