NHL Game Summary - St. Louis at Edmonton



(Saturday, December 21st)

Final Score: St. Louis 6, Edmonton 0

Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Stewart registered his third career hat trick to back Brian Elliott's shutout performance in the St. Louis Blues' 6-0 thrashing of the lowly Edmonton Oilers.

Stewart set up another goal, while Elliott made 23 saves.

"A huge credit goes to my linemates. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and they teed it up for me," said Stewart.

Jaden Schwartz and Patrik Berglund both had a goal and one assist for the Blues, who have won five of their last seven games.

Ilya Bryzgalov surrendered all six goals on 33 shots in Edmonton's season-high sixth consecutive loss.

"I wasn't good enough tonight. I didn't give our guys a chance to win," Bryzgalov said.

The Blues scored four times in the third period to turn the game into a rout.

Stewart converted a behind-the-net pass from Berglund at 1:46, then Schwartz beat Bryzgalov with a wrister from the top of the faceoff circle 52 seconds later to make it 4-0.

Stewart completed the hat trick by one-timing a feed through the slot for a power-play goal at 7:27. Berglund lit the lamp with 7:18 remaining.

St. Louis capitalized on a Bryzgalov turnover to open the scoring. The Edmonton goalie played the puck off the glass right to Schwartz and he dished to Stewart, who fired the puck home 11:57 into the contest.

The Blues grabbed a 2-0 lead when Brenden Morrow finished off a pretty passing sequence by sending a backhander past Bryzgalov at 5:50 of the second period.
