ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Kevin Shattenkirk's first goal of the season midway through the third period sent the St. Louis Blues to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.
Ryan Reaves also scored for St. Louis and Jaroslav Halak stopped 19 shots as the Blues won for the 11th time in 15 games to start the season. It's the first time they've done that since 2003-04, also the best start in franchise history.
It was St. Louis' first regulation victory against the Penguins since a 4-1 win Dec. 19, 2006, in Pittsburgh.
Jussi Jokinen scored and Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves for the Penguins, who have dropped two straight after a four-game winning streak. The 20 shots were a season low for Pittsburgh.
Shattenkirk's wrist shot from the right point got through traffic at 10:52 of the third period. Fleury got a piece of the puck but it trickled into the net to break a 1-all tie.
Shattenkirk extended his points streak to eight games.
Reaves scored the first goal of the game and the 11th of his career when he redirected Maxim Lapierre's centering feed past Fleury 2:52 into the second period.
The Penguins were able to get the equalizer when Jokinen, parked in the slot, redirected Evgeni Malkin's centering feed from the right circle 8:06 into the second. Roman Polak was serving an interference penalty for the Blues.
Shattenkirk and Chris Stewart gave the Blues their best scoring chances in the first period. Shattenkirk's shot from the right circle was stopped by Fleury 5:33 into the game. Stewart missed on a backhand at the side of the Pittsburgh net after getting a pass from Patrik Berglund with 8:33 left in the first period.
Halak was up to the task for the Blues in the first, stopping Chris Kunitz's one-time snap shot of Sidney Crosby's no-look pass with 10:17 remaining. Halak then had Crosby barreling down on him from the left side after T.J Oshie's turnover, but the Blues' goalie made a save with his right arm as Crosby tried going high on the short side with 3:45 remaining in the opening period.
Fleury preserved a 1-all tie by stopping Oshie with 16:15 remaining, then getting a shoulder on David Backes' one-timer after Oshie's feed with 10:45 to play.
Fleury flashed his glove on Alexander Steen's wrister with 5:14 remaining off a 2-on-1 to keep the Penguins within a goal at 2-1.
NOTES: The Blues are one of four teams that haven't allowed a goal to Crosby in his career. The others are San Jose, Edmonton and Chicago. ... Blues D Jordan Leopold (hand) missed his first game of the season. Penguins D Paul Martin (undisclosed) also missed his first game with an injury.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Maty Mauk threw five touchdown passes, four to Dorial Green-Beckham, and No. 9 Missouri cruised past Kentucky 48-17 on Saturday.
Making his fourth consecutive start in place of the injured James Franklin, the Tigers' redshirt freshman completed 17 of 28 attempts for 203 yards and took full advantage of 6-foot-6 sophomore Green-Beckham, whose TD receptions set a school record.
Mauk added a 6-yard scoring pass to Henry Josey, who also rushed for two TDs, including an 86-yarder.
Missouri (9-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) allowed Kentucky (2-7, 0-5) two touchdowns in the third quarter but the Mauk-to-Green-Beckham connection answered both scores with TDs.
The victory helped the Tigers stay a half-game ahead of idle South Carolina (5-2) atop the East division heading into their second bye and gave coach Gary Pinkel his fourth nine-win season in 13 years with Missouri.
Missouri outgained Kentucky just 426-369, but its defense recorded seven sacks and recovered a fumble in handing the Wildcats their 13th straight SEC loss.
Kentucky's only consolation were scores on the opening possessions of both halves. Joe Mansour kicked a 21-yard field goal in the first quarter, while quarterback Jalen Whitlow ran for a 1-yard TD to start the second half.
Raymond Sanders' 1-yard TD run brought the Wildcats within 35-17, but the Tigers tacked on two more TDs to cap a day in which they scored four consecutive times in the first half and three times in the second.
Missouri came in with one of the SEC's top offenses, averaging 500 yards and nearly 41 points per game. The Tigers were coming off a 502-yard effort in last week's 31-3 rout of Tennessee, when Mauk ran and passed for more than 100 yards each and threw for three TDs.
Mauk ended up matching his season TD total in one game before giving way to Franklin in the fourth quarter, his first action since injuring his shoulder against Georgia.
Green-Beckham had the biggest day, catching seven passes for 100 yards. Josey, meanwhile, finished with 113 yards rushing on 11 carries.
Dominant as the Tigers were, their timing seemed off during the first two series after the early start. But then they caught a huge break when Kentucky punter Landon Foster shanked a 13-yard kick to the Wildcats 39.
Back-to-back runs of 6 and 27 yards by Marcus Murphy moved the Tigers to Kentucky's 8 and set up Mauk's floater in the left corner of the end zone, where Green-Beckham effortlessly went up over 6-foot cornerback Nate Willis to snag the touchdown pass.
Missouri special teamer Levi Copeland made Foster's day even worse on the next drive by blocking his attempted punt inside the 10. It was recovered by the punter at the 4. Josey ran it in on the next play, and just like that the Tigers were up 14-3.
The Tigers' next touchdown was nearly identical to the first, as Green-Beckham out-jumped Willis again on the left side of the other end zone for a 7-yard score to cap the Tigers' first sustained drive, 67 yards and 10 plays.
Missouri was just as methodical on its final scoring drive of the half. The Tigers went 87 yards and 15 plays and ended with Mauk's 6-yard pass to Josey, who stretched to hit the pylon as he was knocked out of bounds.
Kentucky controlled the ball for more than 37 minutes, but it didn't matter as Missouri scored quickly in bunches.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have postponed quarterback Sam Bradford's knee surgery, which had been scheduled for Tuesday, due to swelling.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday no new date has been set for the procedure to repair a torn left ACL, but anticipated it would be soon. The team previously announced the surgery would be done by Dr. James Andrews, who also operated on the quarterback's shoulder at Oklahoma.
Bradford has been exercising to strengthen the knee and quadriceps prior to surgery. He's also been on his feet a lot at practice and on game days.

St. Louis opened the scoring at 2:38 of the first period when Steen collected his NHL-best 13th goal of the season.
Blues captain David Backes got it started by stealing the puck from defender Douglas Murray, who was playing softly behind his own net. Backes pushed Murray down and passed the puck to a wide-open Steen, who beat Price over his left shoulder.
Montreal tied it at 5:38 of the second period. Andrei Markov drove hard to the net, colliding with Halak in the process. With Halak still shaken up, the puck fell to Bourque in the crease, and he converted from in close.
Bournival put the Canadiens in front at 14:49 with his fourth of the year. He intercepted a poor pass from Jay Bouwmeester in the St. Louis zone and quickly fired a slap shot between Halak's legs.
Stewart tied it again at 10:31 of the third period when he deflected a Kevin Shattenkirk blue-line shot off the post and past Price.
Halak returned to Montreal for just the second time since being traded to the Blues in 2010. He earned a shutout in his other trip to Montreal in January 2012, winning 3-0.
David Desharnais was out of the Canadiens' lineup after a slow start to his season. The 27-year-old forward, who recently signed a four-year contract extension, has one point in 15 games this season.
NOTES: The Canadiens were coming off back-to-back road losses to the Wild and Avalanche. ... Montreal was without injured players Daniel Briere, Brandon Prust, Alexei Emelin and Travis Moen. There is no timetable yet for their return.

Alex Killorn had a goal and two assists and Steven Stamkos also scored for the Lightning, who have won all five games this season against Western Conference teams.
St. Louis got goals from Alex Pietrangelo and Jaden Schwartz.
Stamkos scored his 11th goal of the season to give Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead 1:43 into the second during a 2-on-1. The center, who has a goal in four consecutive games, briefly dragged the puck before putting an in-close shot past Jaroslav Halak.
