ST. LOUIS (AP) -- T.J. Oshie scored twice and Brian Elliott made 30 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 5-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.
St. Louis has won four in a row and six of seven.
Los Angeles lost a season-high fifth successive game. The Kings' previous five-game losing streak came Dec. 3-13, 2011.
Oshie scored twice in a 91-second span in the second period to push the lead to 3-0. After his second tally, the standing-room only crowd of 19,839 broke into chants of, "USA, USA," in honor of Oshie's selection to the United States Olympic team Wednesday.
It was the first two-goal game of the season for Oshie.
