(HockeyStL) -- The St. Louis Blues beat the Nashville Predators 4-3 for a shootout victory.  Below are interesting tidbits from the game:

- Blues defenseman Barret Jackman played his 600th career NHL game on Monday.  Only 12 players from the 1999 NHL Draft class have played more games than Jackman.

- The Blues pulled Jaroslav Halak in the second period after stopping only eight of eleven shots.  The last time Halak was pulled from a game was on February 9, 2012.  He allowed three goals on 12 shots in an eventual 4-3 shootout victory against the Devils.

- Carrie Underwood was in attendance to watch her husband and Predators forward Mike Fisher play.  Fisher scored a power play goal and recorded an assist.  He also led all Predator forwards in total ice time (23:29).  Underwood did not sing.

- On this date last year, the Blues beat the Sabres 4-2 at the Scottrade Center.  It was the team’s fourth straight win and game No. 47 on the schedule.  It was game No. 2 this year.

- The Blues were 1-for-2 on the power play.  On the season, the Blues are 5-for-7 with the man-advantage.

- David Perron was sent to the penalty box for slashing in the first period.  It was his fourth penalty this season.  He had a total of 14 penalties in 57 games played in 2011-12. 

- The Blues outshot the Predators 39-24 and have outshot their opponents 75-38 after two games.
