Allen Makes 39 Saves, Blues Beat Sharks 4-2

Rookie Jake Allen made 39 saves, Chris Stewart led a balanced attack with two goals, and the St. Louis Blues beat San Jose 4-2 on Tuesday for their second win over the Sharks in three nights.

Brent Burns scored his first in his season debut at forward and Dan Boyle had a late power-play goal for the Sharks, who have lost four in a row and have dropped 10 of 12 to the Blues, including the first round of the playoffs last season.

The Blues overcame a two-goal deficit in a 4-3 overtime victory Saturday night in San Jose and clinched this one on Stewart’s empty-netter with 1:16 to go, four seconds after goalie Antti Niemi was pulled.

Allen has won six of his first seven career NHL starts, also besting the Sharks in San Jose.
