ST. LOUIS - Vladmir Sobotka put St. Louis ahead early in the third period and added an assist for the Blues, who rallied from two goals down and beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 on Friday night.

David Backes added an insurance tally with 5:20 to go, and Jaroslav Halak was strong throughout in net for the Blues, who trailed 2-0 after the first period.

They had been 1-5-1 in their previous seven at home while getting outscored 26-11. The Blues totalled just three goals the previous four games and were shut out twice.

Kevin Shattenkirk scored the tying goal late in the second to snap St. Louis' 0-for-14, power-play drought. Jaden Schwartz also scored for the Blues, who lost six home games in regulation last season but are 5-5-1 there this year.
