ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Alexander Steen scored his league-leading 14th goal, Brian Elliott stopped 18 shots for his 100th career win and the St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 Thursday night.

The Blues have won five of six and are 6-1-1 at home. Calgary has lost four of five and eight of 11.

Maxim Lapierre and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for St. Louis.

Elliott, who got the start in place of Jaroslav Halak, improved to 2-0-1 with his second straight strong performance. He stopped 31 shots in a 4-0 win at Florida on Nov. 1.

Steen has a point in a career-best nine games in a row. He has scored in all but two games this season.

Steen converted on a backhand from the slot in the second period to push the lead to 3-0.

Tarasenko broke an eight-game scoring drought with his fifth of the season on the power play at 3:01 of the opening period. He put home a rebound of a shot by Jay Bouwmeester.

Lapierre pushed the lead to 2-0 just over seven minutes later with his first goal as a member of the Blues.

The Flames, who were 0 for 6 on the power play, have failed in their last 28 man-advantage chances.

St. Louis defenseman Jordan Leopold recorded two assists. Kevin Shattenkirk picked up an assist in his seventh successive game, the longest such streak in the NHL this season.
