ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jaroslav Halak made 30 saves to record his first exhibition win with St. Louis and the Blues beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 on Thursday night.
Halak, who was acquired from Montreal in the offseason, hadn't played since losing 3-1 to Colorado in the Blues' exhibition opener Sept. 21.
Ben Smith scored for the defending Stanley Cup champions but Halak stopped a penalty shot by Jeremy Morin with 4:05 left to help preserve the win.
Marty Turco, who allowed all three goals, made 23 saves for the Blackhawks.
Chicago (1-4-0) left top-line players such as Duncan Keith, Marian Hossa, Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews at home.
