There is an awful lot of character inside our locker room, and I love that it’s on full display right now.”Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for St. Louis, which has won five in row. The Blues have also won four straight games on the road and earned points in four of their last five away from home.The win was Allen’s 26th of the season and seventh in his last eight games.
