Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork. http:///...-Pat-Tillman-Jersey/ .com) - Kevin Shattenkirk scored the winner in the shootout to lead the St. Louis Blues in a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Shattenkirk was the second shooter for the Blues and he buried a wrister past Cam Ward, while Jake Allen stopped Eric Staals wrister for the win. Allen made 26 saves, while David Backes and Ryan Reaves scored in regulation for the Blues, who have won four straight. Justin Faulk and Ryan Murphy lit the lamp for the Hurricanes, who had a three- game winning streak snapped. Ward stopped 29 shots he faced through overtime in relief of Anton Khudobin, who was pulled from the start after allowing two goals on three shots. The Blues needed just 1:48 to get on the board as Steve Ott sent a pass from the left boards to the circle where Reaves beat Khudobin with a wrister for his fifth of the year. Less than two minutes later, St. Louis made it a 2-0 game when Alex Pietrangelo passed the puck from the right corner back to the circle and Backes one-timed it in. That spelled the end for Khudobin, with Ward taking over in net. The Hurricanes made it a 2-1 game at 10:57 of the opening frame, as Faulks wrister from the high slot tipped off a Blue and found its way to the back of the net. Skating on the power play in the second period, Murphys one-timer from the high slot went through a screen and in for his first of the season at 14:19. Game Notes St. Louis plays in Washington on Sunday afternoon ... Carolina plays in New York against the Rangers on Saturday ... The Hurricanes scored on their only power play, while the Blues were held off the board on their lone man advantage. http:///...ts-Tom-Brady-Jersey/ . It was easy to point to the quarterback position--too many injuries, not enough talent or experience otherwise. http:///...Rey-Maualuga-Jersey/ . Beginning this season, teams will be permitted to challenge an on-field call once during each half of the game, for a maximum total of two challenges. SAN ANTONIO -- Tony Parker shooed away the NBA coach of the year. The San Antonio Spurs were ahead 36 points and he didnt want Gregg Popovich to end his night just yet. "To stay in shape," Parker said. Thats how bad it got for the Utah Jazz. It was the third quarter of a playoff game, and Parker by then was practically treating it as just another workout. Pummeling the Jazz in a fashion not seen since Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls humiliated them in the 1998 NBA Finals, San Antonio handed Utah its second-worst playoff loss, winning 114-83 on Wednesday night to take 2-0 lead in the first-round series. Parker scored 18 points, while Popovich -- a day after receiving the NBAs highest coaching honour -- could practically put the Spurs on autopilot after a 20-0 run in the second quarter. Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin had admitted to being unusually jittery before losing Game 1, but this time, it was centre Al Jefferson summing up how this shiner felt. "Embarrassing," he said. The only bigger embarrassment for the Jazz in the playoffs was that 42-point loss to Jordans Bulls in 1998. Game 3 is Saturday night in Salt Lake City. Its the first time the Spurs have led a series 2-0 since opening the 2008 playoffs against Phoenix. San Antonio won that series in five, and unless the Jazz can shake this off, this one will be over just as quick. If not sooner. "I cant explain it. I couldnt explain it the other night," Jazz forward Paul Millsap said. "They came out and just whipped us." It was a total collapse by the Jazz in spite of flying back to Salt Lake City after Game 1 and regrouping with two days of practice back home. There they had talked about adjustments and maybe giving Parker "a hard foul or two" to get him thinking twice about driving, but Parker didnt seem to have a dent on him before taking the entire fourth quarter off. Jefferson and Millsap werent any more imposing on offence than they were defensively. Jefferson scored 10 points, and Millsap had nine. Popovich chalked the blowout more to the Jazz having a bad night -- they shot 23 per cent in the first half -- than the Spurs dominating. Parker playyed 28 minutes and Popovich said the decision on when to take his star out was a struggle between keeping him in condition and not risking injury. http:///...George-Iloka-Jersey/. "He wanted to get the whole quarter, but we compromised and got two more minutes," Popovich said. "Hes been special for us all year, obviously. We got to keep him ready to go." The Spurs held the Jazz scoreless for nearly 7 minutes in the second quarter while rookie Kawhi Leonard and unheralded swingman Danny Green outplayed the Jazzs stars. The Jazz filed off the court at halftime walking slow, heads down and quiet after being as close as 31-26 minutes earlier. Jefferson and Josh Howard, who also had 10 points, were Utahs leading scorers. It was the most lopsided post-season win for the Spurs since beating the Nuggets by 28 in 2005. San Antonios playoff record is a 40-point victory over Denver in 1983. "You dont expect to win a playoff game like that," Green said. "Theyre a very good team, but they didnt shoot it as well as they liked. They didnt shoot it as well as they did, and we shot the ball pretty well. Stuff like that happens." The Spurs have won 12 in a row, a season high after surrendering two 11-game winning streaks this season by not playing Parker, Duncan and Manu Ginobili. Duncan finished with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Leonard scored 17 points, and Green had 13. At least the Jazz didnt look the most embarrassed the entire night. Popovich again had to show off his coach of the year trophy before the game, this time for fans while standing between Duncan and Spurs great David Robinson. Popovich obliged for several seconds before scrambling to hand the trophy off to one of his assistants as fast as possible. Notes: The last Jazz team to rally from an 0-2 deficit and win a playoff series was 2007, when Utah came back to beat Houston in the first round. The Spurs later beat that team on their way to their fourth championship. ... Backup Spurs C Tiago Splitter (sprained wrist) was available to play but the rout gave Popovich the luxury of letting the big man continue to heal. Popovich said Splitter should be better by Game 3.
