Brian Elliott came through with an outstanding fill-in job for Ryan Miller, a 24-save effort that lifted the St. Louis Blues to a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

Maxim Lapierre and Brenden Morrow each tallied goals, with the latter's coming with 1:52 left to play to help the Western Conference-leading Blues improve to 13-3-1 since they acquired Miller, Buffalo's all-time leader in wins and games played by a goaltender, on Feb. 28.

The longtime Sabre was rested in his first encounter with his former club since the trade, with Elliott taking a shutout bid that was finally spoiled by Cody Hodgson with under a minute remaining.

Nathan Lieuwen recorded 26 saves for Buffalo in a losing cause.
