BLUES STAY HOT AT HOME

The Dallas Stars tied the game twice in the third period, but Vladimir Tarasenko scored the winner with 1:36 remaining in overtime to help the St. Louis Blues extend their home winning streak to five games.

* The Blues have earned points in 10 consecutive home games (8-0-2) and are 10-1-2 at Scottrade Center. Their last 10-game home point streak came from Jan. 28 - March 27, 2014, when they also went 8-0-2.

* Jake Allen picked up his sixth straight victory overall and his fifth in a row at home, the longest home winning streak of his career. Allen is 8-0-2 with a 1.57 goals-against average and a .940 save percentage at home this season. According to Elias, Allen is the first Blues goaltender to earn at least a point in 10 straight home games in one season since Jaroslav Halak did so from Dec. 8, 2011 - March 8, 2012 (13-0-1).

* David Perron stretched his point streak to eight games (3-8-11) to set a career high, surpassing the mark he previously set from Feb. 7-18, 2012 (6-3-9 in seven games).

* Tarasenko has earned a point in 10 of his last 12 games (6-8-14). He is tied for third in NHL scoring with 10-13-23.

* Jaden Schwartz picked up an assist to extend his point streak to seven games (5-4-9), one shy of his personal best eight-game streak accomplished from Dec. 19, 2013 - Jan. 4, 2014 (7-3-10) and Dec. 11, 2014 - Jan. 13, 2015 (6-6-12).
