DETROIT, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Jimmy Howard stopped 31 shots to log his fourth shutout of the year Saturday and the Detroit Red Wings whitewashed St. Louis 3-0.

Howard improved to 12-0-0 in his last 12 home games with a 1.34 goals-against average for the Wings, who finished 2011 with their longest home winning streak since 2006-07.

The Wings goalie held tough as Detroit was outshot 11-4 in the final period.

Johan Franzen, Justin Abdelkader and Jiri Hudler each scored in the second period for Detroit.

Brian Elliott turned aside 28-of-31 shots for the Blues, which lost a third straight game for the first time since Ken Hitchcock took over as head coach Nov. 8.
