UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Kevin Shattenkirk and Alexander Steen scored shootout goals to lift the St. Louis Blues to 4-3 win over the New York Islanders following a puzzling goal reversal call in overtime.
 
Thomas Vanek appeared to score the winner for the Islanders on the power play with 1:15 left in overtime but the play was overturned on review. The puck dribbled past Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak and went to Toronto for review. The puck appeared to hit Vanek's skate but the distinct kicking motion that usually negates goals wasn't apparent.
 
Matt Martin had put the Islanders ahead 3-2 midway through the second period. T.J. Oshie tied the game at 19:33 with his 12th goal.
 
Vanek and Kyle Okposo scored in the first for the Islanders. Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice for the Blues.
 
The Islanders lost for just the fifth time in 15 games.
 
Kevin Poulin made a number of acrobatic saves for New York. His best was a point-blank pad save on Blues leading scorer Alexander Steen midway through the second. He also denied Steen and Oshie during a power play midway through the third.
 
Vanek opened the scoring at 4:01 of the first, slapping the puck by Jarolsav Halak for his 19th of the season. Vanek has points in 17 of his last 19 games with nine goals and 16 assists during the stretch.
 
The 30-year-old left wing was acquired from Buffalo on Oct. 27 for Matt Moulson and two high draft picks. The line of Vanek with center John Tavares and with Okposo on the right has ignited the Islanders over the past month.
 
Okposo has points in five straight games and in 18 of his last 22 contests while Tavares (23 goals and 41 assists) is second in league scoring behind Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby.
 
The line connected again at 15:11 when Okposo jammed the puck past Halak for his 22nd goal of the year. Fans at Nassau Coliseum also chanted "U-S-A, U-S-A" for Okposo, who wasn't picked for the U.S. team for the Winter Games next month in Sochi, Russia even though he's having a breakout season. Okposo already has a career-high 54 points.
 
Tarasenko cut the margin in half at 17:17 of the first, beating Poulin high from about 30 feet out. The 22-year-old right wing scored again at 1:17 of the second, his 17th goal this season. He hit the left post late in second and had a golden chance midway through the third when his rebound shot appeared to hit both posts without going into the net.
 
The Blues won the previous meeting this season, 5-1 at the Scottrade Center on Dec. 5.
 
The Blues were completing visits to all three local teams. They defeated the Rangers 2-1 on Thursday after losing 7-1 in Newark to the Devils.
 
St. Louis is 16-3-1 against the East this season. They are 40-10-6 against the East since 2010-11, league-best intra-conference play.
 
NOTES: The Islanders are 19-6-3 when they score at least three goals and are 2-19-5 when they do not . Ten members of the Blues will represent their countries at the Olympics, tying Chicago and Detroit for the most among NHL teams . The Islanders have led by two or more goals 15 times in their 54 games. They are 6-4-5 in those game

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Church officials say plans for a major Catholic gathering in Philadelphia next year are proceeding with the assumption Pope Francis will attend, though that hasn't been officially confirmed.

The eighth World Meeting of Families will take place in September 2015. It's expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Philadelphia Archdiocese spokesman Ken Gavin tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that "our planning all along has assumed the presence of the Holy Father."

Pope Benedict XVI announced in 2012 that Philadelphia would host the triennial event. At the time, he said he looked forward to meeting the region's Catholics. He attended the seventh convocation of families in Milan.

Benedict has since retired. Pope Francis' schedule remains unclear.

Traditionally, papal trips abroad are confirmed a few months before the journey.

CREVE COEUR, Mo. (AP) — The former treasurer for a suburban St. Louis parent-teacher organization faces charges accusing her of stealing more than $50,000 from the organization.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 36-year-old Tenille R. Batsell of Olivette was charged Thursday in St. Louis County with felony stealing.

Police say Batsell was treasurer of the Spoede School Association at Spoede Elementary School in Creve Coeur. She's accused of pocketing about $53,000 that belonged to the group, which relies on donations to organize events for students. Members of the organization called police after discovering accounting discrepancies on its books.

The parent-teacher association said on its website that its members were aware of the charges but couldn't comment.

Online court records don't list a lawyer for Batsell.
