DALLAS (AP) — Jake Allen made 28 saves for his fourth shutout this season, and Vladimir Tarasenko broke a scoreless game with a goal in the third period in the St. Louis Blues’ 3-0 win over the Dallas Stars on Sunday.
The Blues added a power-play goal by Alexander Steen and an empty-netter by T.J. Oshie in the final 3:15. It was Allen’s fifth career shutout.
Tarasenko skated down the slot and fired a shot past Kari Lehtonen into the lower right corner 3:33 into the third. It was Tarasenko’s second game-winning goal in Dallas this season.
Steen and Oshie each had a goal and an assist, and teammate Alex Pietrangelo had two assists. St. Louis killed all six Stars power plays. The Blues’ penalty killers have been successful in 29 of 30 chances over the last nine games.
Neither team scored in the first period, even though Dallas had two power plays and St. Louis had one. The Blues didn’t put a shot on goal during their power play.
