ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Joonas Donskoi and Joe Thornton scored in the second period, Martin Jones made 26 saves and the San Jose Sharks beat the St. Louis Blues 3-1 on Thursday night.

Matt Nieto added an unassisted goal late in the third to give San Jose insurance. The Sharks, who are 8-1-2 in their last 11 games, improved to 17-7-2 away from home and tied Washington for the most road wins in the NHL.

Jay Bouwmeester scored his second goal of the season late in the second period for the Blues.

Both goals for San Jose came during a 4-minute span in the second.

Donskoi banked a shot off the near post to break the scoreless tie at 3:55. He has 10 points, including four goals, in his last 12 games.

Donskoi's goal broke a shutout streak of 96 minutes, 59 seconds, for Blues goalie Brian Elliott.
