Elliott and the Blues were helped by facing a Chicago lineup that was devoid of almost every regular.

Ben Smith, who was playing in his first game of the season, scored for Chicago.

The two-goal game was the first of Schwartz's career. Patrik Berglund also scored for St. Louis and David Backes had two assists to give him 300 points for his career.
