Shootout goals from Oshie, Steen lead Blues over Wild 3-2

ST. PAUL, Minn. - T.J. Oshie and Alexander Steen scored shootout goals and the St. Louis Blues took over the top spot in the NHL standings with a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday night.

In his first shootout since his memorable Olympic performance against Russia, Oshie beat Ilya Bryzgalov — a Russian — through the five-hole in the first round. Steen sealed the win in the following round after the Blues' Brian Elliott turned away Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu.

The Wild fell behind 2-0 early, but tied it with second-period goals from Jason Pominville and Matt Moulson.

Oshie and Carlo Colaiacovo scored on the second and third shots of the game for St. Louis. It was Colaiacovo's first goal since Feb. 11, 2012, a span of 42 games.

Bryzgalov had 21 saves in his first start for Minnesota since coming over in a trade with Edmonton on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
