EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and an assist, and the St. Louis Blues won their season-high sixth straight game by beating the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 on Tuesday night.
 
Chris Stewart, Maxim Lapierre, David Backes and Patrick Berglund also scored for the Blues (30-7-5), who are 11-1-2 in their last 14 games. They are two points behind the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks.
 
The Blues beat the Oilers for the seventh time in eight games and 13th in 16. They have also won four straight and seven of nine in Edmonton.
 
Nail Yakupov and Mark Arcobello had goals for the Oilers (14-27-5), who have lost five of six games and 11 of 14.
 
St. Louis controlled the pace early, outshooting Edmonton 9-1 through the first eight minutes.
 
Oilers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov was forced to make a number of big saves, but Edmonton had the best scoring chance of the opening half of the first period. Jordan Eberle picked up a rebound in the blue paint before goalie Brian Elliott dove across the crease to make a pad save.
 
The Blues took a 1-0 lead with 7:14 left in the first when Stewart fired a shot from the point on the power play that beat Bryzgalov for his 14th goal.
 
The Oilers took advantage of a giveaway at the St. Louis blue line 1:36 into the second period. David Perron sent Yakupov streaking up the wing, and he put a wrist shot past Elliott.
 
The Blues responded 42 seconds later when Lapierre pushed rookie Brad Hunt off the puck along the boards, took it to the net, and hooked a shot past Bryzgalov.
 
It was difficult to tell how the puck went in, but officials checked for a hole in the net, and the goal counted. Lapierre played in his 500th NHL game.
 
Edmonton kept pace with a goal five minutes into the middle frame to make it 2-2. Luke Gazdic sent a pass from behind the net, and Arcobello chipped it up and over Elliott and into the net.
 
St. Louis regained the lead with nine minutes left in the second. The Blues' power-play unit kept the Oilers hemmed in their own zone for 90 seconds before Backes picked the top corner of the net for his 17th goal.
 
The Blues made it 4-2 with 6:03 left in the second. A faceoff win allowed Tarasenko to score on a quick shot from the top of the circle.
 
Blues forward T.J. Oshie had to be helped off the ice late in the third period after a knee-on-knee collision with Taylor Hall.
 
Berglund sealed the win with an empty-net goal in the final minute.
