Allen stops 32 shots, Blues shut out Bruins 2-0

BOSTON (AP) - Jake Allen stopped 32 shots for his fifth shutout, Vladimir Tarasenko and Robby Fabbri scored third-period goals and the St. Louis Blues cooled off the Boston Bruins with a 2-0 victory Tuesday night.

It was only the second regulation loss in 16 games for Boston (11-2-3). St. Louis posted its fifth win in seven games.

The Bruins had won six of their last eight at home.

Boston goalie Tuukka Rask made 27 saves, but lost in regulation for the first time in 11 starts after going 8-0-2.

Tarasenko took a pass and came charging down the slot before slipping a wrister past Rask's blocker for his team-leading 22nd goal to make it 1-0 at 7:35 of the third. It extended the winger's point streak to a season-high seven games, with six goals and five assists during that span.
