Blues continue Central Division dominance by beating Stars

Dec 29, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

The St. Louis Blues continue to find ways to win against Central Division opponents this season, as they held off a Dallas Stars surge to win 3-2 in OT on Sunday.

The team points out that the Blues are now 12-0-1 against Central Division teams in 2013-14 on the heels of close victories against the Chicago Blackhawks last night and Dallas tonight.

As far as this weekend goes, they can thank Kevin Shattenkirk for making the difference. He scored the shootout-winner on Saturday and the overtime-clincher on Sunday, as you can see in the video below:

The Blues fought back from two-goal deficits yesterday, yet they coughed one up tonight. They still came up victorious, however, so that remains a mere footnote.

Meanwhile, Brian Elliott continues to push Jaroslav Halak for reps. Elliott is now on a three-game winning streak in which he has allowed four goals and hasn’t lost in regulation since Nov. 29. That’s actually his only regulation loss, too, as he’s an impressive 9-1-2 on the season.

    Ells has been a great goaltender for a long time… as long as he’s the backup pushing for reps, and not the #1 guy himself. Whenever Halak goes down injured, Elliot’s play has quickly deteriorated.

    Couldn’t agree more with the comment above

    Jake Allen…

    He pretty much saved our season last year and got us out of a bad slump. Halak needs to pick his game up or he’ll be competing with two guys…
