The puck sits in the net as Blues goalie Jake Allen battles in front of traffic.

Michal Neuvirth made 33 saves and Brandon Manning broke a scoreless tie with a second-period goal to help the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 win over the Blues on Thursday night .  Claude Giroux added an empty-net goal with six seconds left in Philadelphia’s first shutout of the season. St. Louis lost at home for the first time after opening 5-0. The Blues were the last team in the league to be unbeaten at home.

Manning fired a shot from the right point that got past Jake Allen. Jakub Voracek set a screen in front and it was initially ruled no goal on the ice before replay officials changed the call.  It was determined that Alex Pietrangelo pushed Voracek into Allen.  Blues head coach Mike Yeo agreed the correct call was made.

The Blues were coming off 10 wins in October, tying a franchise record. They began the night tied with Tampa Bay with an NHL-best 21 points.
