    DALLAS -- Kevin Shattenkirk and the St. Washington Redskins Jerseys . Louis Blues took advantage of Dallas struggling penalty killers -- with only a few seconds to spare. Shattenkirk scored a power-play goal 4:49 into overtime, giving the Blues a 3-2 victory over the Stars on Sunday. Jaden Schwartz had a goal in his fifth straight game and T.J. Oshie also scored for the Blues, who improved to 12-0-1 against Central Division opponents. Brian Elliott made 28 saves to win for the second consecutive night. After the Stars failed to score with a man advantage earlier in overtime, Kevin Connauton was penalized for tripping at 4:24. Shattenkirk took a pass from Alex Pietrangelo in the left circle and shot the puck past goalie Kari Lehtonen into the lower right side of the net. Vladimir Sobotka also assisted. "(Sobotka) did a lot of work on that," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He did a lot of work creating the penalty and did a great job obviously on the goal." Dallas overcame a 2-0 deficit with second-period goals by Jamie Benn and Ryan Garbutt. Schwartz opened the scoring on a power play at 2:41 of the first. He has one goal in each of his last five games. St. Louis scored off a Stars mistake at 5:12 of the second. Oshie picked up the puck after Connauton whiffed on a pass in his own end. Dallas scored only its third power-play goal at home this season when Benn got his fourth goal in five games at 8:13. Garbutt tied it 2-all at 11:31 on a screened shot from the left point that went between Elliotts legs. Lehtonen stopped 19 shots for Dallas, which came into the game with an 89 per cent success rate on the penalty kill. "We had our opportunity in overtime and we didnt get it done," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "We can look at the two one-timers that we shot. We missed the net on both, and their one-timer found a hole." The Blues have earned at least a point in six consecutive road games (4-0-2), extending their season-best streak. Sobotka returned after missing six games because of an upper-body injury and had two assists. He stepped in for captain David Backes, out because of an upper-body injury sustained Saturday against Chicago. "(Sobotka) is a player that you can rely on in every situation. Hes just a great player all around," Schwartz said. "It was a big jump for us and a big positive leap getting him back in the lineup." It appeared that Dallas had scored in the first minute for the second consecutive game when Cody Eakin batted in a rebound of Garbutts shot. But the goal was disallowed because Garbutt didnt allow Elliott to make a play on the puck. "I thought we did our best to try to avoid contact. Its a tough call," Ruff said. "They make a decision on the ice, and its made." After a disputed icing call, Garbutt received a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. While he was in the box, Schwartz took a cross-ice pass from Sobotka and put the puck into the open right side of the net. "It was frustrating to get that goal waved off, especially after the one they had in St. Louis on us," Garbutt said. "But I cant really do anything about that. That was definitely something I had to fight back from and help the team." Schwartz has 13 goals this season. His five-game streak has him halfway to the Blues record of 10 set by Brett Hull -- twice. Lehtonen stopped St. Louis second-best scoring chance in the period with a pad save of Vladimir Tarasenkos wrist shot. Neither team had a goal or a penalty in a defence-minded third period, when Dallas outshot the Blues 8-4. "We were outplayed in the second, but in the third we really managed the game properly and did a good job," Hitchcock said. Oshie received a slashing penalty at 1:11 of overtime, but the Stars couldnt take advantage. "You look at the attempts at the net and the amount of chances we had vs. they, and theyre a better team at finishing off some opportunities," Ruff said. NOTES: Dallas is 3 for 63 (5 per cent) with a man advantage at home this season. ... With Backes sidelined and Alexander Steen on injured reserve, St. Louis was without its top two goal scorers. ... Dallas Alex Chiasson returned after missing two games because of the flu. ... Also returning was Blues forward Brenden Morrow, the Stars captain for six-plus seasons, for his first game in Dallas since being traded last March. The Stars played a video tribute to Morrow during a first-period timeout. "It was a nice little tribute. I just wanted to make sure I got through it, didnt tear up and acknowledged everyone," Morrow said. Geron Christian Jersey ." Also, defencemen "were found to be at a higher risk of suffering a concussion than other players, perhaps due to turning their back to retrieve pucks along the boards, which leaves them vulnerable. Troy Apke Redskins Jersey .J. -- All those records, all for naught.Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Henrik Lundqvist faced only 16 shots in his fifth shutout of the season as the New York Rangers matched a season-high with their third win in a row, a 2-0 whitewash of the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. Dan Girardis goal 16:04 into the game stood up as the winner and Carl Hagelin added an empty-netter in the final minute for the Rangers. New York went 2-0 for the weekend after trouncing Vancouver 5-1 on Saturday night to open a four-game road trip. Lundqvist made five saves in the first and second period and stopped six shots in the third to wrap up his 55th career shutout. They stayed back and were waiting for us to make mistakes, Lundqvist said of Edmontons strategy. The Oilers have dropped four games in a row and 15 of their last 16 (1-11-4). Ben Scrivens made 20 saves but Eddmontons offense remained stuck in a slump. DaRon Payne Jersey. The Oilers have now scored two goals or fewer in seven consecutive games. They were shut out for the fourth time this season. It was a tough night to get anything going, Oilers head coach Dallas Akin said. The Rangers were able to block a ton of shots and the game came to a standstill. Girardis second goal of the season went off an Edmonton defender in front of the crease after he fired the puck toward the net from the low right side. Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello had the assists, with Nash setting up the goal on a pass from behind the net. Game Notes New York also won three in a row from Oct. 16-21 ...
