Blues Whip Blackhawks 5-1
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jaroslav Halak won his sixth straight start to match a career best and St. Louis' penalty killers ran their streak to 32 stops in a row, lifting the Blues to the top of the NHL with a 5-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

Andy McDonald scored two goals and Vladimir Sobotka had a short-handed score for the Blues, who are tied with the New York Rangers with a league-best 91 points pending Vancouver's late home game against Dallas. St. Louis is 27-4-4 at home for an NHL-best 58 points and retained momentum from a season-best 5-1 trip that established it's now a road presence, too.

Andrew Brunette scored his 10th goal and first since Jan. 2 for the Blackhawks.
