Oshie's OT goal gives Blues 3-2 win over Bruins

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- T.J. Oshie scored 3:29 into overtime, leading the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.
 
Oshie jammed the puck in from the side of the net as the Blues, who scored a 3-2 shootout win Nov. 21 in Boston, swept the season series.
 
Alexander Steen and Jaden Schwartz also scored for St. Louis, which blew a 2-0 lead in the third period as Boston scored in a span of just over 2 minutes.
 
Boston had won in its last three trips to St. Louis, and this was the first Blues' home win against the Bruins since Oct. 6, 2006, in a shootout. The last regulation win at home against Boston came on Dec. 18, 1999.
 
David Krejci and Brad Marchand scored for the Bruins.
 
Steen gave the Blues a 1-0 lead with his 28th goal when he ripped a slap shot from the top of the right circle to beat Tuukka Rask at 15:48 of the first period. Jaden Schwartz fed the puck to Steen, who has eight points in his last nine games.
 
Schwartz made it 2-0 when he snapped a wrist shot from the left circle at 3:32 of the second period. The shot by Schwartz grazed the left shoulder of Rusk, who was screened by Kevan Miller. It was the 18th goal by Schwartz.
 
St. Louis' Jaroslav Halak stopped 24 shots in the first two periods before allowing two on the first seven shots in the third.
 
Krejci scored for Boston on a wrist shot from the top of the slot at 9:16, and Marchand then scored on a rebound of a shot by Johnny Boychuck at 11:24.
 
The Blues went 0-for-3 on the power play, and are now 0-for-12 in the last three games.
 
Boston is 7-2-1 in its last 10 games, and the Bruins dropped their first on the road in their last six games.
 
NOTES: Hall of Fame inductee and former St. Louis Rams player Aeneas Williams dropped the ceremonial first puck. ... Boston captain Zdeno Chara was not at the game. He has left for the Olympics, where he is to carry Slovakia's flag in the opening ceremonies. Defenseman David Warsofsky took his place in the lineup. ... Blues F Vladimir Sobotak (knee) and F Vladimir Tarasenko (flu) did not play. ... Boston D Adam McQuaid (lower body) did not play. ... Blues F Brenden Morrow played his 900th career game. He is the 47th active player to accomplish the feat.
