ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jaden Schwartz scored twice and David Perron added the game-winner to give the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night in a rematch of last spring's Western Conference final.
Jake Allen had 29 saves — holding off the Sharks' 6-on-4 advantage over the final 55 seconds — as the Blues won their second straight.
Kevin Labanc got his first NHL goal and Logan Couture also scored for the Sharks, who lost their second straight after winning the first three on a season-high six-game trip.
Perron broke a 2-2 tie with a power-play tally late in the second period. San Jose had killed off its previous 26 penalties over an 11-game stretch.
