Jaroslav Halak made 33 saves for his 28th career shutout and third this season to lead the St. Louis Blues to their seventh straight victory with a 5-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.
Chris Stewart, Vladimir Sobotka, Ian Cole, Alex Pietrangelo and Vladimir Tarasenko each scored goal for St. Louis, which hasn't been defeated since losing in a shootout to the Flames on Dec. 23.
Calgary has lost six of seven since, and it's also the fifth time in seven games the Flames have been shut out.
The Blues pulled even in points with Chicago atop the Central Division — although St. Louis has three games in hand.
Calgary has lost five home games in a row in regulation for the first time since March 7-31, 2000.
