Kevin Shattenkirk potted the winning goal in the shootout as the Blues slipped past the Predators 5-4 at Scottrade Center. T.J. Oshie and Steve Ott scored just 26 seconds apart during a four-goal second period for the Blues, who have won three in-a-row and eight of their last nine overall. Jaden Schwartz and Ryan Reaves also lit the lamp and Brian Elliott made 33 saves in the victory. The Blues skate at Carolina tonight.
