BUFFALO, N.Y. - Jake Allen stopped 23 shots and the St. Louis Blues set a franchise record by extending their point streak to 13 games with a 3-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.

Dmitrij Jaskin scored on a wraparound late in the second period, and Vladimir Tarasenko tapped in David Backes' pass in the third period for St. Louis, which improved its run to 12-0-1. Jaden Schwartz added an empty-netter.

The Blues (34-13-4) won their seventh straight to match a season-best, while beating the Sabres for the sixth straight time.

Buffalo (15-34-3) was shut out for the ninth time this season ? one short of matching a franchise high. And the Sabres failed to build off the momentum of a 3-2 win at Montreal on Tuesday, when Buffalo snapped a team-worst 14-game skid.
