St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk scored 24 seconds into a power play after Winnipeg defenseman Dustin Byfuglien took a hooking penalty with 3:26 left. Shattenkirk’s shot deflected Jets center Bryan Little and the Blues won on the road, 2-1.
Alexander Steen scored his 21st goal of the season early in the second period, giving the Blues a 1-0 lead on their fourth shot on goal. Steen’s goal moved him past Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks into second place in the NHL. Steen has four goals in three games against Winnipeg this season. Winnipeg, with the League’s 30th-ranked power play, countered with a goal from Little three minutes into the third period that broke an 0-for-18 drought.
Blues goaltender Brian Elliott made 20 saves for the win.
