St. Louis Blues' T.J. Oshie scores past Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ray Emery during a shootout of an NHL hockey game Tuesday in St. Louis. The Blues won 1-0.

ST. LOUIS — Ryan Miller stopped 31 shots and T.J. Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk scored in a shootout in the St. Louis Blues' 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

St. Louis has 109 points, one fewer than Boston for the top spot in the NHL.

Miller, who earned his 29th career shutout, made a skate save against Vincent Lecavalier and a glove save on Claude Giroux in the shootout.

One of Miller's best saves came with 1:30 to go in overtime when he stretched out and denied Jakub Voracek's bid to slide the puck under his pads.

Ray Emery earned his 16th career shutout and second this season.

Oshie, who scored on a backhand, is 9 for 12 in the shootout. Giroux is 5 for 10.

Both teams killed penalties in the final five minutes of regulation, with a high-sticking call to Giroux stretching into the first 36 seconds of overtime for Philadelphia. St. Louis penalty killers have allowed three goals on 36 chances the past 12 home games.

The Flyers played in St. Louis for the first time since the 2010-11 opener.

Miller foiled two breakaways in the opening minutes, one created when defensemen Alex Pietrangelo and Shattenkirk collided. He made an outstanding left pad save on Michael Raffl to thwart a 2-on-1 break early in the second period.

Two Blues hit the goalpost in the second period, Jaden Schwartz in the opening minute and Pietrangelo in the final minute.
