Halak posts 2nd shutout with Blues
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jaroslav Halak made 24 saves for his second shutout of the season and 11th overall, and the St. Louis Blues beat Nashville 3-0 on Thursday night, handing the Predators their first regulation loss of the season.
Alexander Steen, Patrik Berglund and Matt D'Agostini scored.
Nashville has lost four straight at home, dropping the first three in overtime.
Steen opened the scoring with a short-handed goal with 7 minutes, 4 seconds left in the second period. David Perron skated from behind the net and hit Steen with a pass. Steen scored on a wrist shot from in front of the crease, beating Pekka Rinne to his stick side. It was Steen's first goal of the season.
With 7:12 remaining in the game, Berglund scored off of a rebound that bounced off of Rinne's pads and into the slot.
Nashville's Jordin Tootoo was given a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct with 6:49 left to play in the third period.
D'Agostini scored on the power play with 4:45 left, beating Rinne from close range.
NOTES: The Predators had been perfect on the penalty kill the previous four games. ... Tyson Strachan played his second game for the Blues this season, replacing Roman Polak. Polak had surgery on his wrist earlier in the day. He's sidelined indefinitely.
