– Ryan Miller stopped 31 shots and T.J. Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk scored in a shootout in the St. Louis Blues’ 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

St. Louis has 109 points, one fewer than Boston for the top spot in the NHL.

Miller, who earned his 29th career shutout, made a skate save against Vincent Lecavalier and a glove save on Claude Giroux in the shootout.

Emery earned his 16th career shutout and second this season.

Oshie, who scored on a backhand, is 9 for 12 in the shootout. Giroux is 5 for 10.
