Streaking Blues blank slumping Kings

T.J. Oshie scored two goals, Brian Elliott made 30 saves and the St. Louis Blues extended the woes of the slumping Los Angeles Kings with a 5-0 thrashing at Scot trade Center. Brenden Morrow had a goal and one assist for the Blues, who won their fourth game in a row. Elliott recorded his third shutout of the season in the 100th win for Ken Hitchcock as St. Louis' head coach. Martin Jones got the start between the pipes for Los Angeles, but was pulled in the second period after allowing two goals on 14 shots. Ben Scrivens stopped only nine shots in relief as the Kings lost their fifth consecutive game, all in regulation.

The Blues are without goaltender Jaroslav Halak for at least the next day or two. Halak missed Thursday’s game with an illness. Brian Elliott will be the starter in Halak’s absence and the team called up Jake Allen from the American Hockey League to serve as a temporary backup.

When our daughter turned 13, as part of her birthday celebration we drove 13 seventh-grade girls to the mall. As one of the drivers, I can attest that a vanload of young adolescent girls generates plenty of chatter...and plenty of drama.
