Blues beat Wings in shootout, 3-2
DETROIT -- Martin Rucinsky and Doug Weight scored in the shootout to give the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 win over the Red Wings on Friday night.

St. Louis goalie Manny Legace stopped Jason Williams on his attempt and Pavel Datsyuk hit the goal post.

Petr Cajanek scored twice for St. Louis, who beat Detroit for only the third time in their last 16 games, and Dallas Drake added two assists. Legace stopped 41 shots in his first game back at Joe Louis Arena after playing with Detroit for seven seasons. He signed with the Blues as a free agent during the offseason.

Rucinsky beat Dominik Hasek with a wrist shot and Weight put a backhander in off of Hasek.

Henrik Zetterberg had a goal and an assist and Nicklas Lidstrom also scored for the Wings, who are winless in their last four games. Hasek made 17 saves.

Detroit defenseman Chris Chelios passed Phil Housley to become the leader in games played by American-born players in NHL history with 1,496. The milestone came against former U.S. Olympic teammates Weight, Keith Tkachuk and Bill Guerin. Chelios captained the squad last winter in Turin, Italy.

Lidstrom tied it at 2 with a power-play goal 8:17 left in the third period, when he put in a cross-crease pass from Datsyuk.

Cajanek's first goal opened the scoring 1:24 into the second period, when he beat Hasek with a wrist shot from the top of the right circle. Zetterberg tied it at 4:03, when he tipped in Jason Williams' pass. Cajanek restored St. Louis' lead at 7:14, when he scored from the high slot.
