ST. LOUIS (AP) - Alexander Steen got the go-ahead goal early in the third period and goalie Ryan Miller won his first home start in the St. Louis Blues' 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

T.J. Oshie's short-handed goal tied it in the second period and he assisted on Steen's 29th of the season for the Central Division leaders. Patrik Berglund started the comeback with his third goal in two games and Vladimir Tarasenko's empty-net score cinched it with a half-minute to go.

Alex Killorn and Tyler Johnson gave Lightning goalie Ben Bishop, a St. Louis native and former Blue, an early cushion against an opponent that's had to come from behind in all four games since the Olympic break.

The Lightning lost 3 of 4 games on the road trip.  They return to the ice Thursday night, at the TBT Forum, against Buffalo.  Steven Stamkos may return to game action on Thursday.  He'll have another medical exam on Wednesday.
