Brian Elliott made 28 saves for his 19th career shutout and Chris Porter scored the game's only goal in the St. Louis Blues' 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.
Porter scored off a goalmouth scramble with 3:32 remaining in the second period with this second goal of the season. Elliott got his first shutout of the season to help St. Louis move into a tie with Minnesota for sixth place in the Western Conference.
Jimmy Howard stopped 24 shots for Detroit, which dropped from seventh to eighth in the West.
