ST. LOUIS -- Vladimir Tarasenko is known for his goal-scoring ability. Now hes starting to show other parts of his game.Tarasenko had a goal and two assists and Alex Pietrangelo scored the go-ahead goal as the St. Louis Blues beat the New Jersey Devils 5-2 on Thursday night.Jori Lehtera, Nail Yakupov and Patrik Berglund also scored for the Blues, who overcame an early two-goal deficit. Jake Allen made 24 saves as St. Louis improved to 13-1-3 on home ice.Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Tarasenko is showing an all-around game.The part that was good for me was in the third period, he competed defensively, Hitchcock said. Thats a big step. He was willing to work for the next goal if it came, and I think thats just maturity in a player. I think youre starting to see the maturity in a player, which is a really good sign for this franchise.Adam Henrique and Miles Wood scored for the Devils, while Cory Schneider made 26 saves. New Jerseys losing streak is at a season-high four games and the Devils dropped their seventh straight game against St. Louis.Henrique gave the Devils a 1-0 lead with a short-handed goal at 7:39 of the first period. Tarasenko whiffed on a shot from the point for the Blues, sending Henrique and Travis Zajac in on a 2-on-1.Wood scored 4 minutes later to give the Devils a 2-0 lead. Wood put it in an open net after Henriques initial shot went wide and caromed off the boards in front of the net.Tarasenko got the Blues on the board when he scored his second goal in three games on the power play with 2:54 left in the first period. Brad Hunt got an assist and has a point in all four games with the Blues since being called up from the AHL on Dec. 8.I thought the one that got us going was the first goal, Hitchcock said. Hes (Tarasenko) not feeling great, hes on for both goals, and then to get one back on the power play kind of just brought us back. To me, we were off and running after that goal.Schneider said Tarasenko has one of the best shots in the league.He can hold his stick up high, he can look you off or just shoot it at a moments notice without any windup or anything like that, Schneider said. Hes always been a tough guy to play against and to read and hes obviously one of the premier players in the league.Lehtera deflected a shot by Robby Fabbri for the Blues at 2:05 of the second period to tie it 2-2. It was Lehteras fourth goal of the season and first since Nov. 22 at Boston.Tarasenko found Pietrangelo through the back door for an even strength goal to give the Blues a 3-2 lead at 7:45 of the second period.Not a set play, but 4-on-4 is more of a creative game, Tarasenko said. We have really good players like Alex and he can read the game well so if he gets open its easier to get the puck to him.The three-point night gave Tarasenko 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in his last five games.When you shoot the way he does, goalies and d-men really have to respect it, Pietrangelo said. It opens up a lot of seams.Yakupov made it 4-2 in the third period with his this third goal of the season and first since Oct. 20.Tarasenko has 22 assists through 31 games and is on pace for a career-high 58.St. Louis tightened defensively, holding the Devils without a shot for the first 11:23 of the second period.Game notes Blues D Kevin Shattenkirk dressed in his 395th game, tying Jimmy Roberts for 12th on the all-time franchise list among defensemen. ...

Gibbs, who also had four assists and two steals, was often that man as he consistently got past the Sun Devil guards for uncontested layups. But Gibbs greatest contribution came at the free throw line where he converted 16 of 21 attempts, including two key free throws with 28.5 seconds remaining to stretch the lead back out to six points. The Sun Devils attempted just 13 free throws as a team.If we are playing one-on-one they might beat us but if we are playing five-on-five I think that was the team thing where we are trying to get better as a team, said Gibbs, whose team had 15 assists off 19 field goals for the game. We made some steps today.In addition to Gibbs and Aldridge, the Wildcats also got double-digit production from Will Magarity (10).Guard Tra Holder led ASU with 18 points before fouling out with 1:45 remaining and his team trailing 62-52. Shannon Evans II also finished with 13 points and seven assists for ASU (3-2).But the Sun Devils, who shot 29 percent from the field in the first half and 32 percent for the game, were hurt by the missed shots of key players like Torian Graham (1 for 12 from the field) and Obinna Oleka (5 for 16).I thought we played as poor of an offensive half as I think we will maybe play all season, said ASU coach Bobby Hurley, whose team pulled within four points late after trailing by as many as 18 in the second half. We are way more capable and better as an offensive team than we showed in the first half. We didnt make shots.Davidson, an Atlantic 10 school, went 2-1 against Power 5 opponents in this weeks tournament.dddddddddddd The Wildcats defeated both Missouri and Arizona State convincingly after losing to Clemson in the opening round.Two very good wins against two very well-coached and very talented teams, said Davidson coach Bob McKillop. To be able to head back to Davidson with two wins against Power 5 teams under our belts is a great statement about us.BIG PICTUREDavidson: The Wildcats proved themselves as a quality team that can play with the big schools. McKillops team beats opponents by being patient, making the extra pass to find the open man. It worked well in wins over Missouri and Arizona State in this tournament. Davidson, however, must take better care of the ball. The Wildcats committed 18 turnovers against ASU.Arizona St: This tournament has to be considered a letdown for the Sun Devils, who suffered double-digit losses to non-Power 5 opponents Northern Iowa and Davidson. Their lone victory in the tournament came against Tulane in a loser bracket game. Holder is the Sun Devils leader but he has to play under control and take better shots.NO CHARITYThere was a huge disparity in free throws for the game with Davidson going 23-30 at from the line, while the Sun Devils had just 13 free throw opportunities and converted seven.The free throw line killed us today, Hurley said. Our inability to get to the free throw line and their ability to get to the line was surprising considering they are a 3-point shooting team.SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHTGibbs, who was on fire for much of the tournament, tied a Tire Pros Invitational record with 71 points over the three days.UP NEXTDavidson: The Wildcats face Charlotte at home on Saturday.Arizona St: The Sun Devils return home to face Citadel on Wednesday.
