|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 43 shots and Jordan Eberle had two goals and an assist and the Edmonton Oilers shut out the St. Louis Blues 3-0 Tuesday.
The victory was the first for the Oilers in four games, which included a 3-0 loss to the Blues on Saturday in Edmonton. It was the Oilers' first win in St. Louis since Dec. 11, 2009.
Despite notching a season high in shots, St. Louis lost for the third time in four games and was shut out for the third time this season. It also had a four-game home winning streak snapped.
Taylor Hall, who assisted on both of Eberle's goals, also scored. It was his eighth of the season off a rebound from Eberle, who skated in on a breakaway.
