UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Kevin Shattenkirk and Alexander Steen scored shootout goals to lift the St. Louis Blues to 4-3 win over the New York Islanders following a puzzling goal reversal call in overtime.

Thomas Vanek appeared to score the winner for the Islanders on the power play with 1:15 left in overtime but the play was overturned on review. The puck dribbled past Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak and went to Toronto for review. The puck appeared to hit Vanek’s skate but the distinct kicking motion that usually negates goals wasn’t apparent.

Matt Martin had put the Islanders ahead 3-2 midway through the second period. T.J. Oshie tied the game at 19:33 with his 12th goal.

Vanek and Kyle Okposo scored in the first for the Islanders. Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice for the Blues.
