ST. LOUIS -- When St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk scored a shootout goal, he felt vindicated for his failed clearing attempt that led to the game-tying goal for the Chicago Blackhawks late in the third period.

Shattenkirk scored in the sixth round to help the Blues defeat the Blackhawks 3-2 at Scottrade Center on Wednesday. He beat Chicago goalie Corey Crawford with a wrist shot high to the glove side, and Teuvo Teravainen hit the post trying to tie it for the Blackhawks.

by Louie Korac / Correspondent

BLACKHAWKS (41-21-5) at BLUES (38-20-9) 

TV: 8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports 

ST. LOUIS -- The Chicago Blackhawks will not have right wing Marian Hossa in a key Central Division game against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday.

Blackhawks' Hossa out vs. Blues

Chicago forward will miss ninth straight game @NHLdotcom

Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa will miss his ninth straight game Wednesday against the St. Louis Blues (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports), Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said.

Hossa has not played since Feb. 13 because of a lower-body injury.

"I'm still feeling it wasn't there yet and I don't want to rush it," Hossa said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "I'd rather wait an extra couple days."

The 37-year-old forward has 10 goals and 28 points in 54 games this season.

Tarasenko focused on Blues' success more than his

Forward closing in on NHL career-high goals

by Louie Korac / Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- Vladimir Tarasenko has scored at least 30 goals in back-to-back seasons and has a chance in the final 15 games to surpass his NHL career-high of 37.

But don't talk to the St. Louis Blues forward about personal success. To him, it's all about the team. Winning means everything.

"I'm not thinking about it right now," Tarasenko said. "It's thanks to my teammates to let me do this [for a] second year in a row."

Wednesday Night Rivalry

Blackhawks, Blues pushing for first place

Central Division battle heats up Wednesday Night Rivalry

by John Kreiser @jkreiser7713 / Managing Editor

There's a three-way race for first place in the Central Division, and two of the teams involved will try to take a big step forward when the Chicago Blackhawks visit the St. Louis Blues in the Wednesday Night Rivalry game at Scottrade Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

The Blackhawks enter the game two points ahead of the Blues, largely because they are 2-0-1 against St. Louis this season, including a victory in each of the past two games. Chicago and St. Louis are battling the Dallas Stars for first in the division and the opportunity to avoid facing one of the other two in the Western Conference First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
