Jake Allen made 38 saves, Brayden Schenn scored his team-leading 14th goal and the St. Louis Blues beat the shorthanded Blackhawks 4-0 in Chicago 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 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.
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 defensemen.
Golden Knights 4, Rangers 1: Alex Tuch scored twice in the first four minutes and Vegas won at New York. Reilly Smith and Max Pacioretty also scored to help the Golden Knights get their first three-game winning streak of the season.
Ducks 4, Kings 2: Derek Grant scored two goals, Ryan Miller made 34 saves and host Anaheim won for just the third time in 13 games. Jakob Silfverberg scored his team-leading 10th goal, Hampus Lindholm had three assists, and Carter Rowney had a goal and an assist for the Ducks.
Islanders 4, Red Wings 1: Jordan Eberle scored two goals and Semyon Varlamov made 30 saves as visiting New York handed Detroit its 10th straight loss. The Islanders were outshot 31-25 but did not trail.
Sabres 7, Devils 1: Jack Eichel had a goal and two assists, and Buffalo used a five-goal first period to beat visiting New Jersey. Eichel scored 2:46 into the game, and Conor Sheary scored twice during the first 20 minutes. Jeff Skinner and Rasmus Asplund also had goals in the first. Linus Ullmark made 44 saves for the Sabres.
