Sharks Prey On Blues In OT

Brad Stuart scored 1:51 into overtime to lead the San Jose Sharks to a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

Owen Nolan, Gary Suter and Stephane Matteau also scored for San Jose, which extended its road unbeaten streak to six (4-0-2).

Daniel Corso, Jamal Mayers and Scott Young scored for St. Louis, which had its home winning streak stopped at three. It was also the first time the Blues lost in 30 games when they took a lead into the third period.

The Blues could not clear the puck from their own zone and Stuart blasted a shot past St. Louis goaltender Roman Turek for the win. San Jose was able to salvage a win even though the Sharks were outshot 31-14.

Blues defenseman Al MacInnis left in the third period after taking a high stick from San Jose's Scott Hannan. MacInnis received stitches to his left eyelid, and did not return.
