Blues 1, Mighty Ducks 0
ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Daniel Corso scored his first NHL goal and Roman Turek made 19 saves for his fourth shutout this season as the St. Louis Blues beat the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 1-0 Tuesday night.
With Tyson Nash, Lubos Bartecko and Scott Young out with injuries, the Blues recalled Corso and Pascal Rheaume from their Worcester farm team on Monday.
Corso paid immediate dividends when he shoved the rebound of Michal Handzus’ shot under Guy Hebert’s pads at 14:28 of the second period. Turek made the goal stand up by stopping all 10 of Anaheim’s shots in the third period for his 13th career shutout.
St. Louis won its fifth straight game and leads the league with a 1.78 goals-against average. The Blues have allowed two goals or fewer in 16 of 25 games and are 14-1-1 in those games.
The Blues, who won the first two games of a four-game homestand, are 11-1-1 at home. The only loss was a 4-3 setback to the Vancouver Canucks on Nov. 21.
Hebert, who made 31 saves, was selected as the game’s first star.
