Clowe gets two third-period goals, shootout winner as Sharks down Blues @NHLdotcom

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Ryane Clowe followed up his two tying goals in the third period with the winning shootout goal, and the NHL-leading San Jose Sharks remained unbeaten at home with a wild 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Evgeni Nabokov made 25 saves and stopped three consecutive Blues in the shootout for San Jose, which improved to 8-0 at the Shark Tank with a remarkable rally led by Clowe, who twice answered go-ahead goals by the Blues in the final period, including a goal during 4-on-4 play with 1:39 left.

Lee Stempniak had a goal and two assists for the Blues, who lost for the sixth time in seven games despite never trailing in regulation. Keith Tkachuk got his ninth goal of the season early on, but Clowe countered goals by Andy McDonald and David Backes.
