ST. LOUIS, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Chris Kunitz deposited a backhander past Brian Elliott in the fourth round of a shootout Tuesday, boosting the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 win over St. Louis.

James Neal, who scored in regulation, missed a potential game-winner in the top of the third round and Marc-Andre Fleury extended the contest with a poke-check on Alex Pietrangelo.

Kunitz then scored the game-winner when he hesitated, faked Elliott to the ice and launched the puck into an empty net, securing the Penguins' seventh straight win entering the All-Star Game break.

Steve Sullivan also scored and Fleury made 32 saves while turning aside three more in the shootout.

Patrik Berglund scored twice and Elliott turned aside 37-of-39 shots for St. Louis.
