OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Patrik Berglund scored the shootout winner in the 11th round and the St. Louis Blues beat the Senators 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Trailing 3-0, the Senators scored three unanswered goals to force overtime, including a goal by Jean-Gabriel Pageau with less than a second left in the third period.

Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson made 28 saves on 31 shots before leaving the game at the 13:41 mark of the second period.

Andrew Hammond stopped 17 shots in relief of Anderson and made a number of huge saves to keep the Senators in the game.

Ryan Dzingel also scored for Ottawa.

Jaden Schwartz, with a goal and two assists, led the Blues, while Dmitrij Jaskin and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored. Jake Allen stopped 40 shots.

Trailing 3-1, the Senators rallied in the third period.

Hammond stopped Tarasenko and Berglund and then Pageau had his first goal of the game with 2:41 remaining in regulation. He banked a shot off Allen from behind the goal line.

Pageau then forced extra time, scoring with less than a second left on the clock to send it to overtime.

Down 2-0, the Senators showed a little life early in the second as Mike Hoffman had a couple of great chances, but was unable to beat Allen.

St. Louis made it 3-0 with its second power-play goal of the game as Tarasenko ripped a shot past Anderson near the midway point of the second.

Ottawa got on the board at 12:32 of the second as Dzingel scored his second of the season grabbing a loose puck out front to beat Allen.

Anderson left the game at 13:41 with what appeared to be a lower body injury.

Once again the Senators had a poor start to the game as they were down 2-0 after 20 minutes and outshot 19-10. Ottawa is 12-25-6 when allowing the first goal.

Jaskin opened the scoring as he won a battle in front and was able to send a shot past Anderson at 3:36.

Schwartz made it 2-0 on the power play midway through the period as he grabbed a rebound out front and beat Anderson low stick side.

NOTES: Senators C Kyle Turris will be out indefinitely with a high ankle sprain. D Patrick Wiercioch was a healthy scratch. The Blues are without G Brian Elliott (lower body), Steve Ott (hamstring), Alexander Steen (upper body) and Jori Lehtera (upper body). D Robert Bortuzzo was a healthy scratch.
