ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Kevin Shattenkirk scored the only goal in the shootout, and St. Louis' Jaroslav Halak made three saves in the tiebreaker as the Blues beat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 on Saturday night.

St. Louis improved to an NHL-best 18-3-3 at home. The Blues, who have won five of six, are 10-0-2 in their last 12 home games. They had been 0-5 in shootouts this season and had scored on just 1-of-17 attempts.

David Perron and Alex Pietrangelo scored for St. Louis in a span of 2:35 in the second period to erase the Blues' 1-0 deficit.

David McIntyre and Jared Spurgeon had goals for the Wild, who fell to 0-7-2 in their last nine road outings.

The Blues moved into a tie with Chicago for first place in the Central Division with 58 points - one fewer than Vancouver in the Western Conference race.
