NHL Game Summary - Philadelphia at St. Louis



(Tuesday, April 1st)

Final Score: St. Louis 1, Philadelphia 0 (SO)

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - T.J. Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk scored in the shootout as St. Louis tied a franchise-high for wins in a season thanks to a 1-0 victory over Philadelphia at Scot trade Center.

Oshie opened the game's final segment with a backhander under the crossbar at the left post, and Shattenkirk ended it to start the third round with a low, hard slapper from the slot. In between, Ryan Miller stopped Vincent Lecavalier and Claude Giroux.

Miller came up with 31 saves in regulation for the Blues, whose 51st win tied them with the 1999-2000 Central Division champions for most in team history.

"We had 'a' good player tonight," said St. Louis head coach Ken Hitchcock about Miller. "He was terrific, he was focused and competitive and whatever else we needed from him."

St. Louis also trails idle Boston by a single point in the race for the Presidents' Trophy.

Ray Emery stopped 28 shots for the Flyers, who have lost four of five but only two of those in regulation (1-2-2).

"We played a good hockey game and got a point out of it," said Philadelphia head coach Craig Berube. "Of course we want two points, but you can't do that if you don't put it into the net."

Philadelphia is now three points behind the Rangers, who beat Vancouver on Tuesday, for the second spot in the Metropolitan Division.

Miller came up huge early, stopping Michael Raffl from the left side to thwart a 2-on-0 break in the first 2 1/2 minutes. Giroux had a better angle and clearer shot but elected to pass.

Several close calls on either side did not result in a goal, with Emery halting 11 pucks and Miller making 10 stops in the game's opening 20 minutes.

The Blues rang two shots off the post in the middle frame and had the better of the chances, but 16 more shots (eight apiece) failed to find the net.

St. Louis effectively killed off a high-sticking minor to Vladimir Sobotka with 4:57 on the clock, then got a prime chance to win the game when Giroux was sent off for the same infraction with 1:24 remaining.

Miller slid from left to right to stop a one-timer by Nicklas Grossmann from the circle with 2:19 to go in overtime. He then dove forward to smother two in-close tries by Jake Voracek with 90 seconds on the clock.

Game Notes

Miller earned his first shutout since March 21, 2012 when he backstopped Buffalo over Montreal ... St. Louis has won three in a row at home against Philadelphia after dropping the previous five from 2001-05 ... Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen was scratched with a facial injury, and Erik Gustafsson returned to action after a 14-game absence.
