Sharks look to build off momentum against Blues

San Jose (43-12-10) at St Louis (30-28-8), 8:30 pm EDT

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- With their longest losing streak of the

season over, the San Jose Sharks will meet the St. Louis Blues

on Thursday.

Defenseman Christian Ehrhoff scored with 86 seconds left in

overtime as the Sharks ended their slide Tuesday with a 5-4

victory over the Minnesota Wild.

Joe Thornton netted a pair of goals and Travis Moen collected a

shorthander and an assist for San Jose, which snapped a

four-game slide to maintain the top spot in the Western

Conference.

"We've won, finally. That's a really good thing," said Sharks

coach Todd McLellan, who saw his team squander an early

three-goal lead. "We'll take the win, but I'm disappointed.

"I'm disappointed in the way we carried ourselves. We're a club

that's won a lot of hockey games for a reason. We should be

playing with a lot of confidence."

David Perron scored twice and David Backes added a goal and an

assist as the Blues cruised to a 5-2 victory over the Dallas

Stars on Tuesday.

Brad Winchester and Keith Tkachuk also tallied and defenseman

Carlo Colaiacovo added a pair of assists for St. Louis, which

has won five of its last seven games.
