Blues Have Record-Setting Night

Another game.

Another record-setting night.

With Tuesday's 3-0 win vs. Nashville, the Blues have set a new franchise record for home wins in one season with 30. The previous record was set during the 1980-81 season, when the Blues went 29-7-4 at the St. Louis Arena on Oakland Avenue.

After Tuesday's game, the Blues are 30-4-4 at Scottrade Center and still have three home games remaining.

"I can tell you as a player, there's no better place to play (than St. Louis)," said defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo. "In games where it seems like things just aren't going well and you need a little pick me up, the fans get into it and they bring you right into the game.

"Every fan of a team is passionate, but here, they think of it as a party. They're out there cheering and having a great time. You feel it when you're out there."

Here are some more records set Tuesday:
  • Brian Elliott set a new franchise record for most consecutive shutout minutes by a Blues goaltender (186 minutes and 33 seconds), surpassing a mark set by Manny Legace (186 minutes and 15 seconds) during the 2007-08 season.
  • Brian Elliott earned his ninth shutout of the season Tuesday, giving him the Blues franchise record for most shutouts in one season by a goaltender. He passed Glenn Hall, who set the previous mark during the 1968-69 season. Elliott currently leads the NHL in shutouts with nine.
  • Brian Elliott tied a club record with a shutout in his third consecutive regular season game, matching Greg Millen's mark during the 1988-89 season.
  • Jaroslav Halak (6) and Brian Elliott (9) have combined to tie a modern era NHL record with 15 shutouts this season. They previously surpassed the team record of 13, which was set by Glenn Hall (8) and Jacques Plante during the 1968-69 season.
  • Jamie Langenbrunner played in his 1,100th game, becoming only the 21st American-born player to do so. He scored the game-winner vs. Nashville.
With 105 points, the Blues still have a chance to surpass their team-best mark of 114 points, set during the 1999-2000 season when the club claimed its first Presidents' Trophy.
