ST. LOUIS -- Carter Hutton stopped 24 shots through overtime and both New Jersey attempts in the shootout, Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko scored in the tiebreaker, and the Blues beat the Devils 3-2 Tuesday night.

Tarasenko and Vladimir Sobotka scored in regulation as St. Louis got its ninth straight win against New Jersey, dating back to a 7-1 loss to the Devils on Jan. 21, 2014. The Blues have a 30-11 scoring edge during the win streak.

Hutton improved to 7-3-0 on the season. He made an eye-popping pad save on Marcus Johansson with 2:09 left in overtime, and then stopped Taylor Hall and Kyle Palmieri in the shootout.

Nico Hischier and Hall scored for New Jersey. Keith Kinkaid made 27 stops through overtime, but failed on both shootout shots. The Devils have lost three straight.

Hall tied the score at 2-2 by banking a shot off the back of Hutton from a wide angle at 1:17 of the third period. The power play goal was the first in 24 chances for the Devils.

Jesper Bratt appeared to give New Jersey a 3-2 lead six minutes into the third but the goal was disallowed due to offsides after a four-minute video review.

Tarasenko scored his 17th goal of the season midway through the opening period, tying Schenn for the team lead and giving St. Louis a 1-0 lead.

Hischier tipped in a shot by Sami Vatanen to tie it with 7 1/2 minutes left in the second period.

Sobotka then put St. Louis ahead with just under two minutes to go in the period.

NOTES: St. Louis has won back-to-back games for first time since Dec. 9-10 and beat New Jersey for the 12th time in the last 13 meetings. ... The Blues play just 11 games in January after 16 in December. ... New Jersey D Mirco Mueller has started skating. He has missed the last 22 games with a fractured clavicle suffered on Nov. 12. ... St. Louis has won an NHL-best 20 games when leading after the second period.
