I’m sure it is not the way head coach Ken Hitchcock would draw it up this way, but if the last two games prove anything, its that this team never believes they are out of a game.

The St. Louis Blues fell behind 2-0 for the second straight game, but rallied with four straight goals against St. Louis native Ben Bishop for a come-from-behind 4-2 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Scottrade Center on Tuesday night.

The Blues also fell behind 2-0 on Sunday, before scoring four unanswered goals in a 4-2 win against the Phoenix Coyotes.

 T.J. Oshie had a goal and an assist, Patrik Berglund scored and  Ryan Miller stopped 15 shots for his second win as a Blue, after being acquired from the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. Alexander Steen’s team-leading 29th of the season put the Blues on top 3-2.  Steen also had an assist, which was the 200th of his career.
Vladimir Tarasenko scored an empty-netter with 39 seconds remaining to secure the victory for the Blues. David Backes and Jaden Schwartz had two assists each.
