Alexander Steen stuffed in a rebound 52 seconds into overtime, lifting the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 slump-stopping victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.

St. Louis snapped a five-game losing streak that followed a 6-1 start.

The Red Wings had won a season-high three straight, a stretch that started with a 5-1 victory over St. Louis, and had beaten the Blues four games in a row at home.

Detroit blew a two-goal lead in the first period and chances to win in the third period on a pair of power plays.

St. Louis goaltender Jake Allen, making his first NHL start in his second game in the league, made 15 saves. Jaroslav Halak missed his fifth straight game with a groin strain, an injury he had in a Feb. 1 loss against Detroit.
