Steen’s winner in OT lifts Blues over Penguins 3-2
PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Alexander Steen redirected Zbynek Michalek’s shot from the point into the net 35 seconds into overtime, lifting the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.
St. Louis snapped a three-game losing streak. The Blues rallied from a two-goal deficit on scores from former Penguins Robert Bortuzzo and Marcel Goc. Steen got his 24th goal of the season on a pretty deflection of a slick feed from Michalek, who spent two seasons in Pittsburgh earlier in hiscareer.
Jake Allen stopped 22 shots for St. Louis as the Blues remained atop the Central Division at the end of a season-long, six-game road trip.
Blake Comeau and Steve Downie scored for Pittsburgh. Nick Spaling added two assists.
