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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
