Couture, Boedker send Sharks to 3-2 win over Blues
ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Logan Couture and Mikkel Boedker each had a goal and an assist, sending the San Jose Sharks to a 3-2 victory over the slumping St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.
Joonas Donskoi also scored and Martin Jones made 30 saves for San Jose, which has won five of its last six games.
Ivan Barbashev and Vladimir Tarasenko had the goals for the Blues, who have lost a season-high four straight.
After a scoreless first period, the teams combined for five goals in the second.
San Jose took a -0 lead when Couture knocked in a loose puck at 6:35. Boedker fired in a shot from the point that goalie Carter Hutton blocked but couldn’t corral. Couture was on the spot and scored his 24th of the season.
