Recap: Pittsburgh vs. St. Louis

Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Alex Steen recorded the game-winner just 35 seconds into overtime and St. Louis ended a road trip with a 3-2 decision over Pittsburgh at CONSOL Energy Center.

Zbynek Michalek held the puck at the right point, raised his stick and faked a shot before slapping a cross-ice pass to Steen for a successful deflection.

"The OT goal was my fault," Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy admitted. "(Steen) got inside position, and I can't let that happen."

Robert Bortuzzo and Marcel Goc scored in the second period for the Blues, who head home after going 3-1-2 on their six-game sojourn.

Jake Allen emerged victorious with a 24-save effort.

"Jake played great," Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo said of his goaltender. "It was a good win for us after a long road trip."

Blake Comeau and Steve Downie lit the lamp for the Penguins, who lost for the fifth time in their last six.

Marc-Andre Fleury suffered the setback despite stopping 32 shots.

Comeau put the hosts on the board at 8:41 of the second period, finishing off a 2-on-1 with Daniel Winnik and Downie doubled the advantage on the following shift on a shot from the right side of the crease.

Bortuzzo picked up his first score against his old club at 14:52 on a shot from the right wing and another former Penguin, Goc, tied it with 2:36 left before intermission.

Fleury made 12 stops and Allen turned away 11 pucks to keep things deadlocked until the extra session.
