Al MacInnis and his 100-mph slapshot aren't skating through that door

The Bruins (24-5-4) made it a four-point weekend as they won 6-3, last night at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.

Blake Wheeler scored twice for Boston, David Krejci had three assists and Phil Kessel added two assists to increase his point steak to 18 straight games.

Wheeler scored his 10th of the season, 2:27 into the game from Krejci and Michael Ryder. He put in a shorthanded goal less than two and a half minutes later from Krejci and Zdeno Chara.

The Blues (13-17-3) tied it up in the first with a power play goal from Brad Winchester (Jeff Woywitka, Roman Polak) and a shorthanded goal by Jay McClemant (Mike Weaver).

At 17:44 in the first, Bruins defenseman Shane Hnidy scored his second of the season, on a power play with assists from Krejci and Kessel.

In the second period, Yan Stastny (Keith Tkachuk, Tyson Strachan) tied it at 3 before Boston responded with two goals. Ryder (12th of the season) scored another power play goal from P.J. Axelsson and Chara while Marc Savard (11th) scored from Kessel and Milan Lucic.

In the third, recent call-up Vladimir Sobotka scored his first of the season from another youngster (Martin St. Pierre).

Bruins goalie Manny Fernandez (playing in back-to-back games) made 29 saves to give him a 11-2-1 record.

Boston travels to New Jersey for a game tomorrow night with the Devils.
