St. swell Gourde . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Vladimir Tarasenko scored 4:20 into overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 comeback win over the Edmonton Oilers. Alex Pietrangelos goal with 7:35 left tied the game to help bail out Blues goaltender Jake Allen, who made 13 saves on just 16 shots. Ben Scrivens faced a barrage of St. Louis shots, stopping 37 of the 41 fired his way. T.J. Oshie started the scoring for the Blues in the first period, and Edmontons David Perron and Nikita Nikitin both scored second-period goals against their former team. Kevin Shattenkirk tied the game 31 seconds into the third period, but Mark Arcobellos goal nearly 3 1/2 minutes later gave the Oilers their second lead of the game. Oshie had three points, and Taylor Hall led Edmonton with two, both assists. Edmonton has now lost nine games in a row, picking up only three points out of a possible 18. The Blues have won six of their last nine games. The Blues could not convert a power play opportunity in overtime, but they managed to beat the Oilers for the 12th time in the last 14 meetings. Tarasenko puck-handled around Edmontons Justin Schultz to create his own shooting lane, and his shot beat Scrivens to get his 13th goal of the season.

Only 31 seconds into the period, Shattenkirk ripped a shot through traffic past Scrivens to tie it up for his second goal of the season. They took another lead minutes later. Arcobello beat David Backes crashing the net, and he directed Halls pass across the slot past Allen for his fifth goal of the season to make it a 3-2 game. Pietrangelo tied the game with his second goal this season as the Blues intensified their pressure. An Oshie shot in tight created a rebound, and with Scrivens down in the crease, Pietrangelo was able to pounce on the rebound and wrist it home. The Blues struck first more than halfway through the opening period. Ian Cole connected with Tarasenko with a perfect cross-ice pass, and Tarasenko dropped it off to Oshie trailing the play. He stepped into the shot and fired it over Scrivens shoulder. St. Louis was burned by a pair of former players in the second period. Perron found a soft spot in the St. Louis defense in the high slot, and he wristed a shot by Allen with traffic in front for his third goal this season. Edmonton took its first lead with less than four minutes remaining in the second. Hall found Nikitin sneaking into the play from the blue line and made a cross-ice pass that Nikitin lifted past Allen for his second of the season.

Fun times in winning markets where there is lots of hope. Here are six thoughts regarding the first half of the season. 1. MVP: Steph Curry (Warriors): Hes been sensational so far. Great leadership and offensive skills. Incredible shooter who has wonderful playmaking ability as well. Continues to improve as a defender and leads the League in steals. Im a huge believer in winning matters in these votes and hes been the guy who has given the best team in the league their mojo. 2. ROOKIE: Andrew Wiggins (Timberwolves): Yes hes had the benefit of being on a team thats young and had lots of injuries so hes gotten increased playing time and shots. That always helps. Yet with that being said, Im seeing the light starting to come on with him. Hes got amazing ability - the question has always been, will he play hard all the time and can he sustain it? Little by little I see a guy who is starting to get it. 3. COACH: Mike Budenholzer (Hawks): This team is an absolute joy to watch. They produce an outstanding defensive effort and put on a complete offensive clinic in how to play the game the right way. Total buy in from his team. Testament to his leadership. 4. SIXTH MAN: Lou Williams (Rapttors): Sure you could vote Jamaal Crawford every year and Ryan Anderson is very good but I look at the Raptors at 27-14 which is the best mid-point record in their history and ask why? The answer is they have a guy like Williams who gives them a shot to sustain, score and compete at a high level every night. Bouteille swell a Vendre. Hes literally won them games Im convinced they would have lost last season without him. Hes been a huge pickup and helped Toronto become a legitimate Top 10 team. 5. SURPRISING TEAM: Milwaukee Bucks. At 21-20, theyve already exceeded last seasons win total for the season. Coach Jason Kidd has done a wonderful job. They really guard you and compete. Lot of solid parts that mesh well. Brandon Knight has really improved and the ball moves with purpose. Even without Jabari Parker, I like the makeup of this club. 6. DISAPPOINTING TEAM: New York Knicks. I didnt think they would be good yet never expected them to be at 6-36, the worst team in the NBA. Wow, theyve been awful to watch. Simply put, not a lot of talent here. Coach Derek Fisher has tried everything and on many nights gotten good competitive push from them yet they cant sustain and go through the droughts that poor teams do. Injuries have been a killer. Might be the ultimate blessing in disguise that finally gets them to build for the long term and try to do it right. Rough season in the Big Apple. ' ' '
