Blues nip Wild in SO

Kevin Shattenkirk scored the game-winning 2 win over the Minnesota Wild at Scottrade Center.

Shattenkirk skated in on Josh Harding with speed and waited for the Minnesota netminder to make the first move, which he did, and Shattenkirk fired a wrister high to the blocker side for the lone tally of the extra session.

Jaroslav Halak stopped all three shootout attempts including Devin Setoguchi's chance to end the game for the Blues, who have won five of their last six games.

David Perron and Alex Pietrangelo scored and Shattenkirk added an assist in regulation for St. Louis, which got 29 saves from Halak in the victory.

David McIntyre and Jared Spurgeon lit the lamp for Minnesota, which has lost two straight and five of six. Harding made 47 saves -- a career high -- in defeat for the Wild.
