ST. LOUIS - T.J. Oshie hasnt seen anything like this before in his seven seasons with the St. Louis Blues.Oshie and the Blues continued their blistering scoring binge against the visiting San Jose Sharks with seven players scoring goals in a 7-2 win on Thursday night.Not since Ive been here, no, I havent, Oshie said of the offensive outburst. But without scoring the goals, if a couple of those go off the post and out, were still playing great hockey, were still getting pucks deep, were still working for each other. Well take the goals, but I think thats what well take out of these games.Oshie, Alexander Steen, Jay Bouwmeester, Paul Stastny, Jori Lehtera, Patrik Berglund and David Backes all scored for the Blues (25-13-3), who have 20 goals during a three-game win streak.Really unselfish hockey is what is evident to me right now in a lot of things were doing, St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. When you are unselfish, you come off the ice at the right time, you change at the right time, you leave your teammate in a good spot, youre going to have success. To me, the goals are a result of the way were playing. Were playing the right way and its having a big impact on keeping the group together.Jaden Schwartz added three assists. Brian Elliott made 24 saves.Were all playing good hockey, from the goalie to the defence to the forwards, Schwartz said. Everybodys doing their job. Tonight you saw they were pretty tired on the back end by the end of the game and thats what we wanted to do from the start.The Blues beat the Sharks 7-2 on Saturday in San Jose and then defeated the Coyotes 6-0 on Tuesday in Arizona. St. Louis now has at least six goals in three consecutive games for the first time since December 2000.Thursdays game was the start of a seven-game homestand for St. Louis, which had played 16 of its previous 23 games on the road. The Blues improved to 14-4-1 at home.The Sharks (22-15-5), who rebounded from the loss to the Blues with road wins against the Jets on Monday and the Wild on Tuesday, got goals from Logan Couture and Melker Karlsson.Thats as good as Ive seen a team play two games against us, San Jose coach Todd McLellan said. They had the puck the whole night, they protected it, they roamed around and if you just looked at the shot totals you would say San Jose was in the game. We werent. . Right now, I dont know what else is going on around the league, but it would be hard to find a team better than that.St. Louis struck first with a power-play goal from Steen, his 11th of the season and third in four games, and then a goal from Bouwmeester.San Jose answered with a short-handed goal from Couture, his 15th, with 1:33 remaining in the first period after Joe Pavelski took a double-minor for high-sticking.Stastny helped the Blues capitalize on the Pavelski penalty with a power-play goal, his ninth of the season, assisted by Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk with 54 seconds left in the period.The Sharks scored just 29 seconds into the second period with a wrister from Karlsson, his fourth in four games, to make it 3-2.The Blues scored four straight goals from that point, with two in the second period and two more in the third.Lehtera scored his ninth of the season in the second, followed by Oshies 11th on a rebound of Alexander Steens shot to chase San Jose goalie Antti Niemi from the game.Berglund made it 6-2 with a wraparound goal with 10:55 left in the third period. Then Backes, who had four goals in the win in Arizona, scored his 14th of the season with 8:01 left.You can sit here and make every single excuse in the book, but to lose 7-2 is unacceptable with this team that we have, Couture said. We just got beat plain and simple, again, by that team. Were better than what weve shown. To go out and play that team two games and get spanked like that. We havent been good in front of our goalies against these guys.NOTES: San Jose C Joe Thornton missed his fourth consecutive game with a shoulder injury. He had played 319 straight games before suffering the injury on Dec. 31. . The Blues attendance of 19,220 was their sixth sellout of the season. . The Backes-Steen-Oshie line has now accounted for 35 points in the Blues past seven games. . The Blues entered Thursdays game leading the NHL in power-play percentage (25.7 per cent). St. Louis has scored seven power-play goals during its three-game win streak and eight over the last four games. Bill Laimbeer Jersey .com) - Charlie Davies netted a pair of goals, including the series-winner on Saturday, as the New England Revolution battled the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw in the second leg of the Eastern Conference Championship at Gillette Stadium and advanced to MLS Cup final via a thrilling 4-3 aggregate victory. Ben Wallace Jersey . - Tom Brady was upset that his New England Patriots hardly looked like a division champion in the first half. . Instead, Nonis and Kessel were sorting through the fallout of a wild melee with the Buffalo Sabres, one that saw Kessel suspended for the duration of the pre-season. Reggie Jackson Jersey . Saltalamacchia drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, Henderson Alvarez won for the first time in three starts and the Miami Marlins beat the Braves 3-2 on Thursday night. Tobias Harris Jersey .com) - It may just be the right place and the right opponent for the Detroit Red Wings to snap their longest losing streak of the season.TORONTO - Don Cherry remembers Pat Quinn as an old-school coach with a special way about him.Quinn, a former NHL defenceman, coach and executive, died Sunday night in Vancouver after a lengthy illness. He was 71.He was one of the good old boys. Were all going fast, the 80-year-old Cherry told The Canadian Press.He wasnt one of thoose guys with the Xs and Os but he had the touch.ddddddddddddThats what I think of Pat Quinn, he had the touch. That included his relationship with his players.The players loved him, Cherry said. If you noticed (about) all the old-school coaches, the players loved them. Because they were one of them more or less. ' ' '
