Vokoun makes 34 saves in shutout of Blues

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Tomas Vokoun stopped all 34 shots for his 32nd NHL shutout and Nathan Horton had a goal and an assist as the Florida Panthers beat the St. Louis Blues 4-0 Saturday night.

Cory Stillman, Stephen Weiss and Dennis Seidenberg also scored for the Panthers, who won Friday night in a shootout at Dallas. The back-to-back wins matched Florida's win total for the month before Friday.

Vokoun, who earned his first shutout of the season, made his 27th appearance against St. Louis and 25th career start. Many of those came while playing in Nashville. He improved to 13-10-3 overall against St. Louis and had a 2.01 goals-against average coming into the game.

The Blues, who lost for the fifth time in six home games, have gone 123 minutes, 50 seconds without a goal at home and dropped below .500 for the first time this season. They are 3-6-1 since opening the season with two wins over Detroit in Sweden.

Stillman, a former Blues forward, put the Panthers ahead 1-0 at 10:36 of the first period with his first of the season. He took a backhand feed from Horton and beat goalie Chris Mason from the slot.

Weiss netted his fourth after the Panthers won a cycled puck behind the net. Weiss scored from the right circle at 17:24 to make it 2-0.

Seidenberg's first of the season came off a wrist shot from the left point that got past a screened Mason 8:08 into the third.

Horton finished the scoring with an empty-net goal with 2:58 remaining.
