Shattenkirk scores deciding goal in shootout, lifts Blues over Blackhawks 6-5

ST. LOUIS - Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrik Berglund scored 1:17 apart late in regulation to tie it and Kevin Shattenkirk netted the deciding goal in the fifth round of a shootout to give the St. Louis Blues a 6-5 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Patrick Kane had a goal and assist in the Blackhawks' second three-goal first period in two nights and extended his point streak to 14 games.

The Blues are 3-0 against the Blackhawks, who lead the NHL with 60 points. Two wins were by shootout and all three were decided by a goal.

St. Louis rallied from deficits of 3-1 and 5-3 without leading scorer Alexander Steen, who was placed on the injured list on Saturday because of a concussion.

Brian Elliott finished strong in the Blues net after Jaroslav Halak was pulled after the first period.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
