|Blues Complete Season Sweep of Sharks with 3-1 Win
|SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Andy McDonald and Kevin Shattenkirk scored power-play goals and the St. Louis Blues capped a four-game season sweep of the San Jose Sharks with a 3-1 victory Saturday night.
T.J. Oshie also scored and Jaroslav Halak made 18 saves for the Blues, who outscored the Sharks 10-1 over the final 10 periods played between the teams this season.
Torrey Mitchell scored the lone goal for the Sharks, who have lost nine of their last 12 games to fall out of first place in the Pacific Division.
The Blues have completely dominated the season series against the Sharks since scoring three third-period goals in the first meeting to erase a 2-1 deficit. St. Louis then shut out San Jose in two games at home, including one that started this recent skid by the Sharks, and controlled the play this game to extend their longest winning streak against San Jose since winning five straight in 2003.
