Recap


Defensemen Kris Russell and Kevin Shattenkirk each scored a goal and Brian Elliott made just 19 saves for his 11th career shutout as the St. Louis Blues blanked the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning 3-0 on Saturday.

Russell, acquired from Columbus in a trade Thursday night, notched his first for his new team 18:51 into the game. Shattenkirk added another in the final seconds of the second period for the Blues (8-7-1), who are 2-0-1 under new coach Ken Hitchcock.

T.J. Oshie, who has six points in his last five games, put the game away with a shorthanded goal 6:26 into the third. David Backes stole the puck from Lightning goalie Mathieu Garon behind the net and fed a wide-open Oshie in front.

Tampa Bay (8-6-2) had a season-low two shots and did not register one for the final 14:04 of the second period. The Lightning almost escaped without allowing a goal, but Shattenkirk took a feed from Alexander Steen and beat Garon on a 2-on-1 at 19:54.

Russell scored on a screen shot from the left point that glanced off the leg of Lightning defenseman Bruno Gervais and past Garon. Tampa Bay has been outscored 17-8 in the first period this season on the road.
