Blues Shutout Red Wings 6-0 In Season Opener

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rookie Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice in his NHL debut and Chris Stewart also had a pair of goals to help the St. Louis Blues manhandle the Detroit Red Wings 6-0 in their season opener Saturday night.

Coach Ken Hitchcock, general manager Doug Armstrong and goalies Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott posed at center ice with postseason trophies earned from last season's Central Division championship team shortly before the opening faceoff.

A standing room crowd of 20,035 roared throughout the opener.

There was a moment of silence in tribute to Hall of Fame baseball player Stan Musial prior to the third period.
