Kevin Shattenkirk scored twice for the Blues, who lost their third straight game. Paul Stastny had a goal and assist, while Jaden Schwartz added a pair of assists. Blues goalie Pheonix Copley, a native of North Pole, Alaska, made his first NHL start and had 24 saves. He played in one game last season.
The key moment of the game was the second period. The Blues had three power-play opportunities in that 20-minute span and didn’t score despite firing 25 shots on goal.
