Blues defeat Flyers 1-0 in shootout
- Updated: April 2, 2014
Miller earned his 29th career shutout and first in 101 games since March 21, 2012, against Montreal when he was with Buffalo. He made a skate save against Vincent Lecavalier and a glove save on Claude Giroux — who’s 5 for 10 — in the shootout.
Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk scored in the shootout for the Blues, who have 109 points — one fewer than Boston for the top spot in the NHL. They’re 9-3 in the shootout largely because of Oshie, who’s an uncanny 9 for 12 after converting a backhand, and also put on quite a show at the Sochi Olympics.
Emery, the Flyers’ backup making just his third start since the beginning of March, earned his 16th career shutout and second this season. One of Miller’s best saves came with 1:30 to go in overtime when he stretched out and denied Jakub Voracek’s bid to slide the puck under his pads.
