ST. LOUIS -- Right winger T.J. Oshie scored 3:29 into overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 win Thursday night over the Boston Bruins.

Oshie was able to get the puck past Boston goaltender Tuukka Raak in the corner of the net on a feed from behind the net.

The Blues, who blew two-goal leads in each of their last two games, did it again against the Bruins, who rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game with two goals in the third period to send it to overtime.

Center David Krejci cut the St. Louis lead to 2-1 at 9:16 of the final period, firing a shot from just inside the blue line past goalie Jaroslav Halak, who appeared to be screened on the shot by players in front of the net.

The Bruins got the tying goal just 2:08 later from left winger Brad Marchand, who scored his 18th of the year off a rebound from a bad angle at the side of the net.

Right winger Alexander Steen gave the Blues a 1-0 lead when he fired a slap shot past Rask at 15:28 of the first period. Boston coach Claude Julien was upset that a penalty was not called on St. Louis center Maxim Lapierre for hitting right winger Loui Eriksson with a high stick on the play. The preliminary report was that Eriksson lost two teeth on the hit.

The goal was the 28th of the season for Steen but only his second in his last six games.

Left winger Jaden Schwartz increased the lead to 2-0 with his 18th goal of the year at 3:32 of the second period. His wrist shot deflected off Rask's shoulder and into the net.

NOTES: The Bruins were without their captain, D Zdeno Chara, who left the team early for the Olympics so he could carry the flag of his native country, Slovakia, in the opening ceremonies Friday. ...
