Conklin Shuts Out Rangers for Blues
NEW YORK (AP) -- Ty Conklin made 27 saves for his 15th NHL shutout, Alexander Steen scored twice and the surging St. Louis Blues stifled yet another opponent in beating the New York Rangers 2-0 on Sunday night for their seventh straight win.

Conklin, playing in just his second game this season, looked every bit as good as No. 1 goalie Jaroslav Halak, who took the night off after beating Boston on Saturday in a shootout. St. Louis shut out the Rangers for the first time in 129 meetings.

It is the Blues' longest winning streak since they ran off nine straight from Oct. 15 to Nov. 5, 2002. St. Louis has allowed only six goals during this run, and posted four shutouts -- the previous three by Halak.
