ST. LOUIS - Bobby Ryan just missed scoring the winning goal in overtime. Given another chance in the shootout, Ryan came through for the Ottawa Senators.After the Senators rallied with two third-period goals, Ryans shootout tally capped a dramatic 3-2 victory over the host St. Louis Blues that snapped St. Louis two-game skid.I think we came in after the second and really werent down, Ryan said. I thought physically and emotionally we were still invested in the game. Got the ugly one to start rolling. After losing the way we did (Monday) night, this was a big one.The Senators, who got third-period goals from Erik Condra and Alex Chiasson to tie it, had lost two in a row, three of four and six of eight. They were beaten 3-2 by the Blues at home on Saturday and then fell 4-3 in Detroit on Monday.Thought it was a very hard fought, well-played game, Ottawa coach Paul McLean said. We battled through 1-0, 2-0, disallowed goals, some adversity to win in a shootout to a very good team.Its a big win for our group and a real momentum builder on this road trip. We found a way to win a game on the road in a tough building in a tough situation.Robin Lehner stopped 27 shots, including all seven he faced in the third period and all four in overtime. He thwarted all three Blues attempts in the shootout.This was a good win for our team, Lehner said. It was very important for our team to come back here and get two points. We played the right way, tried to get back to a structured game. Its something we needed.The Blues, who lost No. 1 goalie Brian Elliott to a lower-body injury late in the second period, had won two straight and five of seven.Tonight is really disappointing, St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. The loss is one thing, but the way we played at times is disappointing, attention to detail and focus. Coming back, we took a day off to get re-energized.I thought our focus was really inconsistent, poor at times. Execution, not even close to the way we played on the road.Hitchcock didnt know how long Elliott will be sidelined. Elliott, who earned the win against his former team on Saturday, stopped all 16 shots he faced on Tuesday before being replaced by Allen, who made 15 saves.The Blues entered leading the NHL in goals-against average, with 2.0 goals allowed per game.The goalies have been the heart and soul of our team and the biggest reason why weve been winning, Blues forward Alexander Steen said, so its tough to see a guy like Moose (Elliott) go down.The Blues took the lead with 5:37 left in the first period on a long knuckling shot from defenceman Ian Cole that deflected off Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson and got past Lehner. It was Coles first goal of the season.Steen scored during a 4-on-3 power-play with 7:55 remaining in the second period.Elliott left the game with 6:02 left in the second period after his right leg bent backward during a scramble in the crease. The puck went in the net, but the goal was waved off after a review.Condra scored his first of the season with 12:05 remaining in the third when he beat Allen on a redirected shot from the point from Eric Gryba to make it 2-1.The Senators tied it with 40 seconds left in regulation with a rebound goal from Chiasson, his sixth of the season.Ryan had the best scoring chance in overtime when he beat Allen with a wrister, but hit the right post with 2:54 left.He found his mark in the shootout with a low wrist shot to the glove side.I truly just tried to feather that in, Ryan said. I used to shoot a lot on the same move and the same area and I didnt get as much on it as I would have liked, but maybe that was a benefit.NOTES: Blues D Jay Bouwmeester missed his second consecutive game with a lower-body injury.

The attacking midfielder has scored in the last three Spanish league games, and in Real Madrids last seven wins. He has also scored in his last two games against Real Sociedad.Madrid is unbeaten in its last 12 home matches, a run that includes 11 wins.MOYES AIMS FOR DOUBLE: Sociedad coach David Moyes strategy of defending tightly and breaking out on swift counterattacks paid rich dividends with a win against Barcelona on Jan. 4.A victory against Madrid would make a remarkable double for the former Manchester United and Everton coach, giving 11th-place Sociedad a massive confidence boost and lending credibility to Moyes tactics.Weve always been effective against biig teams, they respect us, Sociedad midfielder Esteban Granero said.dddddddddddd If the best Real Madrid meets the best Real Sociedad, weve got a chance of winning.MESSI MARKSMANSHIP: Having emerged victorious 3-2 from a bruising Copa del Rey clash at Atletico, Barcelona faces little respite from Villarreal.Despite its attacking might, Barcelona managed only a 1-0 win against Villarreal in their last league encounter, and Villarreal has risen to sixth in the standings.Villarreal is unbeaten in its last 16 matches in all competitions in a run going back to early November, although the last time it won at the Camp Nou was in March 2008.If Lionel Messi continues his marksmanship at home, he will have scored in eight successive matches at the Camp Nou — another personal record.BRUISED ATLETICO: Atletico fans saw an unusual sight after their teams midweek loss to Barcelona — a despondent coach Diego Simeone.The Spanish champion travels to Eibar after that crushing Copa quarterfinal exit. Atletico finished with nine men after captain Gabi Fernandez and midfielder Mario Suarez were sent off. The implosion could have been worse had the normally even-tempered Arda Turan been red-carded for throwing a boot at a linesman.Atletico needs to stay focused against eighth-place Eibar on Saturday because it is four points adrift of leader Madrid, which has a game in hand.
