ST. LOUIS, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Alexander Steen scored twice in the first 8 minutes Thursday, touching off an offensive show that brought St. Louis a 5-1 win over Montreal.

Steen's two early goals, one of them coming shorthanded, gave him 24 for the season. He moved into second place by himself on the NHL's goal-scoring chart this season, four behind Washington's Alex Ovechkin.

Chris Stewart added a first-period goal for the Blues and they came up with additional goals from Jaden Schwartz and Maxim Lapierre in the third. St. Louis had lost its previous two games.

Jaroslav Halak gave up only a second-period goal and stopped 25-of-26 shots. The loss went to Carey Price, who allowed all five goals and made 24 saves.

St. Louis has defeated Montreal in each of their last five meetings.
