NHL Game Summary - St. Louis at Chicago

(Wednesday, December 16th)

Final Score: Chicago 3, St. Louis 0

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Cristobal Huet stopped all 27 shots he faced for his second shutout of the season as Chicago shut down St. Louis, 3-0, at United Center.

Troy Brouwer, Brian Campbell and Marian Hossa tallied for the Blackhawks, who have won four of five.

"It's a team concept. Everybody is taking part in playing good defense and going from defense to offense. We have a great system, great (defense) and forwards helping. It makes it a lot easier," said Huet.

Ty Conklin made 32 stops in defeat for the Blues, who have dropped three of five.

"They are a good team, there's no question about it. They play fast, they play together, support the puck and make plays together," said Blues forward David Backes.

Chicago took a 2-0 lead after one period, on an even-strength goal by Brouwer at 14:33 and a power-play blast from Campbell at 17:36.

Hossa made it 3-0 on a one-timer from the slot with 3:06 left in the second period.

Huet made nine saves in the first period, 10 in the second and eight in the third to lock up the victory.
