Little-used Chris McAlpine picked the right time to score his first goal of the season.
The Blues had been 3-0 against the Oilers this season. Edmonton (0-6-2) is the only NHL team that does not have a road victory.
McAlpine came back to score after taking a pass from Pierre Turgeon, who got the Blues' first goal late in the opening period. McAlpine's previous NHL goal came last March 7 against Dallas.
"I just saw kind of an opening in front of the slot," McAlpine said. "Turg got me the puck and I was luck enough to knock it in."
Turgeon started the play by beating Edmonton defenseman Janne Niinimaa to a loose puck behind the net. Turgeon's speed helped set up the goal.
"I didn't know that it was Chris out there, but I saw somebody in front of the net," Turgeon said. "I figured if I could get the puck out there to him, something good would happen."
"We'll take a point. This was a tough (game)," St. Louis coach Joel Quenneville said. "Edmonton played hard and came right after us."
he Oilers took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Guerin at the 13:37 mark of the opening period. It was the first goal of the season for the veteran, who missed the first 11 games before signing a new two-year contract.
"We're playing well enough to get a win," said Guerin. "But maybe we're just a little unlucky."
St. Louis goaltender Roman Turek stopped 30 of 32 shots.
