ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jaroslav Halak made 15 saves for his second straight shutout, and Alex Pietrangelo scored with 5:14 left in the St. Louis Blues' 1-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

St. Louis has earned points in a franchise-record 14 straight home games. The Blues are 7-0-1 in January, an NHL-best 20-3-3 at home and lead the league with nine shutouts.

The Blues tied Chicago and the New York Rangers for the NHL lead with 62 points, a point ahead of Detroit. The Red Wings were at Phoenix on Thursday night.

Edmonton has dropped 12 of its last 13 road games.

Halak, coming off a 1-0 victory over Dallas on Monday, has four shutouts this season and 20 overall. He improved to 10-0-3 in his last 13, hasn't allowed a goal in 148:28 and hasn't lost in regulation since Nov. 22.
