Recap: Nashville vs. St. Louis

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Alexander Steen scored a pair of goals to fuel the St. Louis Blues' 6-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday in a Central Division clash at Bridgestone Arena.

Jaden Schwartz, Alex Pietrangelo and T.J. Oshie each added a goal and an assist, while Derek Roy registered the other goal for the Blues, who were coming off back-to-back losses after regulation.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 22-of-23 shots to backstop the victory.

Nick Spaling scored the lone Nashville goal, while Carter Hutton was tagged for five goals on 26 shots before being pulled in the third. Magnus Hellberg allowed a goal on four shots in relief for the Predators, who had won three of their last four games.

"Obviously we didn't get the job done tonight," Spaling said. "There were just a couple breakdowns we have to fix."

Steen opened the scoring with a power-play marker at the 5:27 mark of the first before the Blues tacked on two more goals in the second.

Oshie tipped-in Pietrangelo's blast from the right point at the 7:34 mark of the second before Schwartz tickled the twine with a one-timer from the right circle with 8:24 left in the second stanza to make it 3-0.

Spaling's short-handed marker 52 seconds into the third got the Preds on the board, but the Blues responded with three straight tallies to put the game away.

Steen scored his second of the night at 4:37 when he banked the puck in off the back of Hutton from behind the net.

"He feels like he's fresh on the ice and when you're fresh, you're confident," Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock said of Steen. "That's how he's feeling right now."

Roy chased the Nashville netminder from the contest just over three minutes later when he rifled a wrister from above the right circle on an odd-man rush to make it 5-1 at 7:48.

Pietrangelo's slapper from the high slot with the Blues on the power play at the 12:58 mark accounted for the final margin.
