Porter scored off a goalmouth scramble with 3:32 remaining in the second period with this second goal of the season. Elliott got his first shutout of the season to help St. Louis move into a tie with Minnesota for sixth place in the Western Conference.

Jimmy Howard stopped 24 shots for Detroit, which dropped from seventh to eighth in the West.
