Recap


Blues 2, Jets 1: Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk scored the go-ahead goal on the power play with 3:02 left in the third period as visiting St. Louis edged Winnipeg.

Alex Steen also netted his 21st goal for the Blues, who moved ahead when Shattenkirk’s shot from the left point hit a diving Bryan Little before looping over everyone and dipping into the net. Brian Elliott turned aside 20 shots in improving to 5-1-1 for St. Louis, which is 2-0-1 against the Jets this season.

Little scored the only goal for the Jets, who gave St. Louis the late power-play opportunity when defenseman Dustin Byfuglien was called for hooking with 3:26 remaining. Ondrej Pavelec made 18 saves for Winnipeg, which was playing its first game at home after a 4-2-0 road trip.

Elliott stopped all eight shots he faced as his teammates mustered only a pair in the opening period. St. Louis picked it up in the second session and took the lead when Steen banked in a shot off Pavelec from below the left faceoff circle at 4:44.

Little tied the game three minutes into the third with a one-timer from the right circle during a man advantage after a quick pass from captain Andrew Ladd. Pavelec made a big stop on Vladimir Sobotka with 7:17 left to keep it tied, but the Jets failed on a power-play chance soon after.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Shattenkirk has collected two goals and four assists in his last four contests. … Little’s goal was Winnipeg’s first with the man advantage in eight games. …. Jets LW Evander Kane missed his fourth consecutive game with a lower-body injury.
