Sobotoka's hat trick helps St. Louis rally to beat San Jose 4-3 in OT

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Vladimir Sobotka recorded his first career hat trick and Patrik Berglund scored 72 seconds into overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues past the San Jose Sharks 4-3 on Saturday.

Berglund's team-leading 12th goal of the season came after the Blues rallied from two goals down in the third period. Sobotka, who is riding the best streak of his career, had both scores to tie it before Berglund's game-winner.

Scott Gomez had a goal and assist for San Jose, which has lost nine of its last 11 against St. Louis.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
