|Blues Shut Out Oilers
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jaroslav Halak needed to make only 12 saves to earn his sixth shutout of the season and T.J. Oshie had a goal and an assist in the St. Louis Blues' 4-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.
It was a matchup of Western Conference foes who are out of the playoff picture, with the Blues winning for only the second time in six games (2-4) while extending the Oilers' winless streak to eight (0-6-2).
Matt D'Agostini, Chris Stewart and Adam Cracknell also scored for the Blues, who avoided falling below .500 for the first time this season.
Nikolai Khabibulin took the loss for the Oilers, who have scored only seven goals during their skid.
