ORLANDO, Fla. - Adam Cracknell scored a tiebreaking goal with 2:20 to play and Chris Stewart had a goal and two assists as the St. Louis Blues beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 in an exhibition game Wednesday night.

Nikita Nikitin and Ian Cole added power-play goals for the Blues, while Tampa Bay got extra-man goals from Marc-Andre Bergeron, Cory Conacher and Eric Brewer.

Dwayne Roloson, the Lightning's No. 1 goalie, played the first 30 minutes and allowed one goal on nine shots in his pre-season debut.

The Blues went up 4-3 when Cracknell scored from in close.

Conacher and Stewart traded goals midway through the third before Brewer beat goalie Ben Bishop to pull the Lightning even at 3 at 14:41.
