Game Notes - Blues 4, Canadiens 3 (OT)
  • Brian Elliott stopped a career-high 46 shots for his 8th win of the season.  Fittingly, on a night in which he donned a mask in tribute to his childhood idol and former Blues goaltender Curtis Joseph, Elliott’s 46 saves were the most by a Blues netminder at home since Joseph posted an equal total on Apr. 11, 1993 against Minnesota
  • Jori Lehtera tallied his 15th assist and added his first career overtime goal, extending his point streak to a season-high tying four games (2g, 3a).  For January, Lehtera has six points (2g, 4a), which shares the team lead with Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Tarasenko
  • Robby Fabbri logged his 11th goal and sixth assist for his second career multi-point game.  Over the Blues’ last 14 games, Fabbri leads the club with six goals (since Dec. 21)
  • Ty Rattie buried the game-tying goal at the 14:35 mark of the third period.  He now has goals in back-to-back games and four points (2g, 2a) over his last six NHL games overall
  • Paul Stastny scored his fourth goal of the season, giving him six points over his last eight games (1g, 5a).  Stastny also has four points (1g, 3a) over his last five home games
  • Vladimir Tarasenko notched his 21st assist of the year, giving him six points (2g, 4a) over his last eight games.  Tarasenko now has 23 points (14g, 9a) at home this year, which shares the team lead with Alexander Steen
  • Patrik Berglund posted a pair of assists, giving him two multi-point efforts over his last three games.  Berglund also added a +2 rating and now has six points (3g, 3a) and a +3 rating over his last six games
  • Colton Parayko’s assist was his second in his last three games.  Parayko also logged a +2 rating, his team-leading 7th game with a +2 mark or better this season
  • Kevin Shattenkirk served 14 penalty minutes which was one minute off a career high (15 PIM on Nov. 29, 2014 vs. MIN).  Shattenkirk also managed a season-high +3 rating
  • The Blues penalty killers halted six of Montreal’s seven power play opportunities which marked a new  season-high
