Brian Elliott and the Blues took some Wite-out to the team's record books Tuesday night.
By making 24 saves in a 3-0 win over Nashville, Elliott recorded his third consecutive shutout, setting the Blues' all-time shutout record at 186 minutes, 33 seconds. His ninth shutout of the season also established a new club high.
"Three in a row is pretty unbelievable, when you think about it," Blues forward David Perron said. "Two in a row's pretty good ... three's just unbelievable."
The old club record for consecutive shutout time was 186:15, set by Manny Legace in 2007-08. The record for single-season shutouts was eight, set by Glenn Hall in 1968-69.
Meanwhile, the Blues' 15th shutout of the season, including six by Jaroslav Halak, tied the NHL's post-expansion record, which is held by Chicago (1969-70).
"It's an amazing run," Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne said. "Fifteen shutouts this season as a team ... that's pretty unbelievable."
Elliott had nine shutouts in his first 133 starts ...
