by Chris Pinkert / Notes by Dan O'Neill

ST. LOUIS - The Blues met the Edmonton Oilers for the first time last Thursday night at Rogers Place in Alberta. Vladimir Sobotka opened the scoring, Alexander Steen scored the go-ahead goal on the power play and Brayden Schenn added two goals in the third period to help the Blues to a 4-1 victory, snapping a two-game losing streak.

The Blues held Oilers' star Connor McDavid to just three shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in the game. Jake Allen stopped 29 of 30 saves to record his 100th career victory.

Since then, the Blues earned a come-from-behind 4-3 overtime victory against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday to improve to 15-5-1 on the season (31 points), which ranks first in the Western Conference and just one point behind the Tampa Bay Lightning for first overall in the League. The Oilers dropped a 6-3 decision to the Dallas Stars on Saturday, falling to 7-11-2 on the season. Edmonton remains in second-to-last place in the West, just three points ahead of the Arizona Coyotes.
