ST. LOUIS (WWJ/AP) – Detroit got on the board first but were held to one goal as the Red Wings fall to the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Justin Abdelkader scored the Red Wings only goal early in the first period.
Matt D’Agostini added a power-play goal for the Blues, who ended the Red Wings’ four-game winning streak and halted goalie Jimmy Howard’s five-game winning streak against St. Louis.
Detroit was 0 for 6 on the power play and is 0 for 16 the last three games. They are 2 for 24 on road advantages.
Alex Steen followed up scoring unassisted for the go-ahead goal in the second period, and the St. Louis Blues held the Detroit Red Wings to single-digit shots in all three periods of a 2-1 victory on Tuesday night.
Howard made 35 saves in his first loss against the Blues since a 4-3 shootout defeat on Feb. 9, 2010. Detroit totaled 22 shots, but only four in the third.
