ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Vladimir Tarasenko scored three goals, and the streaking St. Louis Blues netted four in the third period in a 5-2 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night for their fifth straight win.
The Blues scored three times, including two power-play goals, in a span of 2:30 in the third. Tarasenko added an empty-net tally with 1:24 remaining for his 20th goal of the season.
Jake Allen made 21 saves for the Blues, who will begin a three-game road trip against the Kings on Thursday.

The Kings had taken control of this one when Marian Gaborik scored twice in the second period.
