ST. LOUIS (AP) - Alexander Steen's slap shot with 21.1 seconds remaining beat Chicago goalie Corey Crawford and gave the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 win over the Blackhawks on Wednesday night.
Steen broke down the left side as part of a 3-on-1 rush. He kept the puck and let go a drive from just inside the circle that trickled through Crawford.
The Blues (3-0) matched their best start to a season, also done in the 1969-70 and 1993-94 campaigns. Jaroslav Halak made 26 saves in his third straight win. Vladimir Tarasenko and David Backes also scored for St. Louis.
Patrick Kane scored for the third straight game for the Blackhawks, and Jonathan Toews had the other Chicago goal. Crawford made 31 saves.
FLAMES 3, CANADIENS 2
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Rookie forward Sean Monahan had a goal and an assist, and Joey MacDonald made 33 saves in Calgary's victory against visiting Montreal.
Sven Baertschi and Curtis Glencross also scored for Calgary (2-0-2). The last time the Flames earned at least one point in their first four games was in 2009 when they had a 4-0 start.
MacDonald made his third consecutive start.
P.K. Subban had a goal and an assist for the Canadiens (1-2), who hadn't played since beating Philadelphia on Saturday. Lars Ellar recorded his fourth goal and sixth point of the season. Carey Price made 22 saves.
Despite being outshot 12-4 in the first period, the Flames took a 2-0 lead.
