Updated: March 1, 2013

Vladimir Sobotka and David Backes both scored
in the third period as the St. Louis Blues rallied from a two-goal deficit to
beat the Edmonton Oilers, 4-2, at Scottrade Center.

The Oilers jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one period on late tallies from
Taylor Hall and Ryan Whitney. St. Louis, however, fought back with second-
period goals by Jaden Schwartz and Kevin Shattenkirk.

Jaroslav Halak made 15 saves for the Blues, who have won two of their last
three games.

Devan Dubnyk stopped 26 shots for Edmonton, which suffered its sixth straight
loss in St. Louis.
