NASHVILLE, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Alex Steen scored his ninth and 10th goals of the season Saturday, igniting the St. Louis Blues' 6-1 victory over Nashville.

His second goal tied him with Washington's Alex Ovechkin for the NHL lead.

T.J. Oshie, Alex Pietrangelo and Jaden Schwartz each provided a goal and an assist and Derek Roy also scored for the Blues, who improved to 6-1-2 on the season.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 22-of-23 shots.

Carter Hutton started in goal for Nashville but was pulled in the third period after yielding five goals on 26 shots. Magnus Hellberg saved 3-of-4 St. Louis tries the rest of the way.

Nick Spaling scored for the Predators, who were coming off a Friday overtime win against Winnipeg.
