Stempniak, Wideman score on power play as Blues get past Blackhawks 2-0

St. Louis has not given up a goal in the first period since Andy Murray became coach 12 games ago. The streak matches the NHL record which was set in 1974 by the Los Angeles Kings. The Blues ended the Kings' streak that season by scoring a first period goal in the 13th game.

Blues goalie Manny Legace faced 14 shots in the first period. He stopped a breakaway at 13:36 by Martin Havlat and blanked the Blackhawks on two power-play opportunities.

In all, Legace stopped 28 shots to earn his 15th career shutout. His last was Dec. 30 against Colorado.

Legace has posted a 6-1-1 record in his last eight games.
