St. Louis • Jaroslav Halak knows his hockey history.

He is well aware of the legacy left by former St. Louis goalie Glen Hall.

Halak passed Hall with his franchise-record 17th shutout and Alex Steen scored on a penalty shot to lead the Blues to a 7-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

Halak made 19 saves in moving into the No. 1 spot on the Blues' career shutout list.

Hall had 16 shutouts for St. Louis from 1967-1971.

"He was a great goaltender and he's in the Hall of Fame," Halak said. "It's a special feeling. I'm glad I was able to pass him, but I couldn't have done it without my teammates."

Halak posted his 26th career shutout and improved to 8-1 lifetime against the Panthers.

"He made five or six quality saves in the first period," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He was feeling strong."

Newcomers Brenden Morrow and Derek Roy scored their first goals of the season for St. Louis, which received goals from seven players. The Blues have outscored their opponents 11-2 with 10 players scoring goals this season.

Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz also converted against Florida goalie Tim Thomas, who was pulled after the second period. He allowed five goals on 28 shots. —
