|Blackhawks Edge Blues in OT
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Marian Hossa scored a pair of goals 2:31 apart late in the third period to erase an early two goal deficit, then Patrick Sharp connected at 3:50 of overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.
Sharp scored from just to the left of the crease after taking a cross-ice pass from Patrick Kane and whipping a shot past Jaroslav Halak.
Sharp's fifth goal in three games extended Chicago's winning streak to three. Hossa spoiled a shutout bid by Halak with 6:48 left in the third when he scored a power-play goal by backhanding in a rebound of Brent Seabrook's shot.
Hossa tied it at 2 with 4:17 to go when he fired in a loose puck, also on a backhand shot, from a scrum in the crease.
It was his seventh goal in seven games this season.
David Perron scored his first two goals of the season for the Blues, whose losing streak reached three.
