ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jake Allen stopped 27 shots and Jaden Schwartz scored early in the third period, leading the St. Louis Blues over the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Saturday night.

It was the first shutout for Allen this season and the 12th in his career.

Schwartz got the first goal by a Blues forward in 169 minutes, 22 seconds. He scored 3:43 into the third off a pass from Jori Lehtera, swiping the puck from in front past goalie Peter Budaj. Vladimir Tarasenko also assisted on Schwartz’s first goal of the season.

Los Angeles challenged the play for offsides, but the goal was upheld.

Budaj had 24 saves. He had won five straight dating to last season.

Before Schwartz’s goal, the action was sparse in a hard-hitting game. Los Angeles had just 10 shots in each of the first two periods, and the Blues had 13 shots after two periods.

The Blues scored one goal in five of their last six games.

St. Louis has won three in a row against the Kings, who entered play with a four-game winning streak — three in overtime and one in a shootout.

The Kings failed to score on five power-play opportunities. For the season, St. Louis has killed 30 of 32 power plays.

The Blues did not score on four chances with an extra man.

Los Angeles defenseman Braden McNabb left early in the third period with an upper body injury and did not return.
