Recap: St. Louis vs. Boston

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - T.J. Oshie scored 3:29 into overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues over the Boston Bruins, 3-2, on Thursday.

Jaden Schwartz had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who bounced back from a 5-4 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday. Alexander Steen also lit the lamp.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 36-of-38 shots for the victors.

"Our most competitive player tonight was the goalie," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said of Halak. "The goalie was outstanding, and he helped us a lot."

David Krejci and Brad Marchand scored for the Bruins, who had a two-game winning streak snapped. Tuukka Rask turned aside 24-of-27 shots.

Boston was without defenseman Zdeno Chara on Thursday. The Bruins captain will also miss Saturday's home contest against Ottawa due to him being selected to carry Slovakia's flag on during Friday's Opening Ceremonies for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Trailing 2-0, the Bruins got goals from Krejci and Marchand in the third period to force overtime. Krejci's shot from the high slot beat Halak at 9:16.

Marchand tied the game at 11:24 when Johnny Boychuk's blast from the point hit off the boards and went right to Marchand, who scored from a sharp angle.

Oshie scored the game-winner with 1:31 left in overtime. He prevented Boston's clearing attempt behind the net and jammed the puck past Rask and the near post.

"I'm proud of the way we played from the first line to the fourth line," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "All of our [defensemen] were really good tonight. I thought our team played extremely well and probably deserved better. It was an unfortunate bounce to lose that game in overtime but still a great effort from our team."

The Blues took a 1-0 lead at the 15:48 mark of the first period when Steen's slap shot from the top of the right circle got past Rask.

Schwartz scored on a wrister from the left circle at 3:32 of the middle stanza.

Halak made 24 saves over the first two periods to preserve St. Louis' 2-0 margin.
