DETROIT — Brian Elliott made 28 saves for his 19th career shutout and Chris Porter scored the game's only goal in the St. Louis Blues’ 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings today.

Porter scored off a goalmouth scramble with 3:32 remaining in the second period with this second goal of the season. Elliott got his first shutout of the season to help St. Louis move into a tie with Minnesota for sixth place in the Western Conference.

Jimmy Howard stopped 24 shots for Detroit, which dropped from seventh to eighth in the West.

Elliott stopped Gustav Nyquist's breakaway attempt by using a shoulder save with 8 minutes left in the second period.

The Blues’ Alexander Steen hit the goal post behind Howard from the left circle 4:24 into the game. St. Louis outshot Detroit 11-7 in the first period.
