ST. LOUIS (AP) — Charlie Coyle scored the game-winning shootout goal as the Boston Bruins recovered from blowing a 3-0 lead to beat the St. Louis Blues 4-3 for its 60th win of the season.

Linus Ullmark made 35 saves and stopped all three St. Louis shootout attempts to lead Boston to its third straight win.

Jake DeBrusk, Tyler Bertuzzi and Oskar Steen all scored in regulation for Boston.

Jordan Kyrou scored a pair of goals, and Torey Krug also scored for St. Louis.

Jordan Binnington made 28 saves for St. Louis which lost its second straight game.

Dmitry Orlov appeared to have scored the game-winner 2:24 into overtime, but after a quick review the goal was overturned as David Pastrnak was off-side entering the St. Louis zone.

Kyrou scored his second goal of the game and team-leading 36th of the season with 25 seconds remaining in regulation after Binnington was pulled for an extra attacker to tie the game 3-all.

Krug buried a rebound from Brandon Saad past Ullmark for his seventh goal of the season 9:47 into the third period to cut the Boston lead to 3-2.

Kyrou scored his first goal of the game with nine seconds remaining in the second period.

Bertuzzi scored his seventh goal of the season on a power play 7:18 into the second period and Steen added his first goal since Jan. 22, 2002, 44 seconds later to expand Boston’s lead to 3-0.

DeBrusk scored his 25th goal of the season when he tapped in his own rebound past Binnington 5:51 into the first period to give Boston an early 1-0 lead.

NOTES:

St. Louis recalled D Matthew Kessel from Springfield of the AHL under emergency conditions after D Marco Scandella sustained a lower-body injury on Saturday in Nashville. Kessel was selected by St. Louis in the fifth round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft … C Robert Thomas (upper body), C Pavel Buchnevich (upper body) and D Robert Bortuzzo were scratched for St. Louis. … Boston needs three more wins in its five remaining games to break the NHL record of 62 wins in a season set by Tampa Bay in 2018-2019 and Detroit in 1995-1996
