SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- T.J. Oshie and Andy McDonald scored in the shootout to give the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.
Carlo Colaiacovo scored a short-handed goal with 7 seconds remaining in regulation to tie it at 2 for the Blues.
Patrick Marleau netted a goal in the shootout for the Sharks, who had a three-game winning streak stopped. Dany Heatley and Joe Pavelski scored in regulation.
Jay McClement had the other regulation goal for the Blues, and Ty Conklin made 32 saves -- including several quality attempts against the NHL's top offense.
Evgeni Nabokov stopped 28 shots, but the Sharks allowed their fifth short-handed goal of the season, and the fourth in the last three home games.
Heatley scored his 19th goal at 1:19 of the first period. Joe Thornton found the wide-open Heatley for a 50-foot slap shot that sailed cleanly into the net.
Heatley ended his season-worst, four-game streak without a goal. Thornton extended his point streak to 10 games (3 goals, 15 assists).
The Blues tied it at 11:06 when Alexander Steen fed McClement for a one-timed, left-handed shot from the right side. The puck knuckled into the far side top corner.
McClement scored his second goal in 16 games after netting three in his first 10.
Pavelski gave the Sharks a 2-1 edge midway through the second period, redirecting a shot from Douglas Murray. Ryane Clowe powered his way along the boards to protect the puck and passed it to Murray.
Just 20 seconds after Nabokov made a kick save on Barrett Jackman, Colaiacovo took a pass from Keith Tkachuk and made a nice spin move to score the tying goal.
NOTES: Heatley tied a franchise record with seven shots in the first period. ... Tkachuk has 65 points in 66 games against the Sharks. ... D Jay Leach participated in his first skate with the Sharks, but didn't play. ... Colaiacovo returned to the ice after missing Monday's game at Columbus. ...
