ST. LOUIS (AP) - Vladimir Tarasenko scored a power-play goal with 5:20 left, Jake Allen made 27 saves and the St. Louis Blues rallied to beat the Nashville Predators 2-1 Thursday night.

The Blues came back from a goal down in the third period for the second straight game and have won three of four. It's their first winning streak since getting three straight victories in early November.

Tarasenko scored his 20th of the season after Viktor Arvidsson was whistled for tripping Carl Gunnarsson. Tarasenko whipped a wrist shot from the faceoff circle.

The Predators have lost three straight. Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne made 31 saves and is winless in his last seven road starts.

David Backes scored early in the third period for St. Louis.

Roman Josi put Nashville on top with a first-period power-play goal.
