Allen gets shutout, Blues blank short-handed Blackhawks 4-0

CHICAGO – Jake Allen made 38 saves, Brayden Schenn scored his team-leading 14th goal and the St. Louis Blues beat the short-handed Chicago Blackhawks 4-0 on Monday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

Jaden Schwartz, Tyler Bozak and Mackenzie MacEachern also scored for St. Louis, which improved to 13-3-3 since star forward Vladimir Tarasenko was sidelined by a left shoulder injury that required surgery.

It was Allen’s first shutout of the season and No. 20 for his career, matching Jaroslav Halak for second on the franchise list. Brian Elliott leads the way with 25.

Chicago lost for the sixth time in seven games since a four-game win streak.

The last-place Blackhawks played a man short because of injuries and the salary cap, going with 11 forwards and six defencemen.


DETROIT (AP) — Jordan Eberle scored two goals and Semyon Varlamov made 30 saves as New York handed Detroit its 10th straight defeat.
