(Winnipeg, Manitoba)  -- Kevin Shattenkirk's power-play marker with 
3:02 left in regulation was the winner, as St. Louis clipped Winnipeg, 2-1, at 
MTS Centre. 

Alex Steen also lit the lamp and Brian Elliott stopped 20 shots for the Blues, 
who  reached the 20-win plateau by taking their seventh victory in the last 10 
outings. 

"Our  goalie made some great saves and I think we were getting nervous when we 
didn't score on some opportunities, but I really like the way we fought," said 
Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock. 

Bryan  Little scored  and Ondrej Pavelec made  18 saves for the Jets, who have 
dropped three of their last five. 

I  thought the game was a game that was a chess match played game early," said 
Jets  head coach  Claude Noel. "They ended  up scoring a seeing eye power play 
goal, so what can you do?" 

Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien was sent off for hooking with 3:26 to play in 
the third period, and the Blues wasted little time in breaking a 1-1 deadlock. 

Derek  Roy fed  across to Shattenkirk at  the left point, and his shot changed 
direction en route to the net and floated over Pavelec. 

"Sometimes  you get rewarded  with a couple lucky ones and it was a great game 
by both teams," said Shattenkirk. 

Steen  opened the scoring with 4:44 gone in the second period, as his low shot 
from  along the goal  line to the left of the Winnipeg net found space through 
Pavelec. 

Little  evened the  game on  a  power play  at  the three-minute  mark of  the 
third,  taking an  Andrew Ladd dish and  scoring on a high shot from the inner 
edge of the right circle.
