The St. Louis Blues trailed 2-0 on Monday night in Nashville but put together a strong third period and rallied back to force overtime thanks to goals from David Perron and Brayden Schenn and a 37-save performance between the pipes from Jake Allen.

Nashville's David Carr, who was recalled from the American Hockey League earlier Monday, scored the deciding goal in a shootout to limit the Blues to just one point in the contest.

"We played a good third period," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said. "We battled back and got a point out of it. It's a tough game. They're a good team. They work hard. It's a tough building to play in. I thought we battled all night. Got down 2-0 early, we had the power plays early in in the first period and didn't capitalize there. A couple of mistakes and they scored, and then we made it a game."

The Blues' three-game road trip continues Wednesday in Tampa Bay, where they meet the Lightning at 6 p.m. CT (FSMW, 101 ESPN).
