ST. LOUIS -- Jaroslav Halak set a franchise record with his 17th shutout and Alex Steen scored on a penalty shot to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 7-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday.
Newcomers Brenden Morrow and Derek Roy scored their first goals of the season for St. Louis, which received goals from seven different players. The Blues have outscored their opponents 11-2 with 10 different players scoring goals this season.
Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz also converted against Florida goalie Tim Thomas, who was pulled after the second period. He allowed five goals on 28 shots.
Halak made 19 saves and passed Glen Hall, who had 16 shutouts from 1967-1971. Halak posted his 26th career shutout and improved to 8-1 lifetime against the Panthers.
The Blues' seven-goal outburst was their largest since they won at Detroit 10-3 on March 30, 2011.
Florida, which beat Dallas 4-2 in its opener, was looking to start the season 2-0 for the first time in eight years.
