DETROIT —

Brian Elliott made 28 saves for his 19th career shutout and Chris Porter scored the game's only goal in the St. Louis Blues' 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

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.

Elliott stopped Gustav Nyquist's breakaway attempt by using a shoulder save with 8 minutes left in the second period.

The Blues' Alexander Steen hit the goal post behind Howard from the left circle 4:24 into the game. St. Louis outshot Detroit 11-7 in the first period.

NOTES: The NHL held a news conference on the ice before the game to officially announce the Winter Classic outdoor game between the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium will be held on Jan. 1 next season. The game was originally scheduled for this past New Year's day, but was canceled due to the lockout. It was also made official that - as originally planned - a second sheet of ice will also be constructed in downtown Detroit at Comerica Park, where two alumni games, American Hockey League, college, high school and youth games will be held in the two weeks leading up to the Winter Classic. ... It was the 1,000th game for referee Dan O'Halloran, who lives in Brighton, Mich., which is about 60 miles west of Detroit. He was recognized before the game.
