ST. LOUIS, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Goalies Ben Bishop and Marek Schwarz combined to stop 17 shots Saturday night when the St. Louis Blues recorded a 4-0 win over the Florida Panthers.
Bishop, who at 6-foot-7 is the tallest goaltender ever to play in the NHL, became the starter after Manny Legace was injured when he tripped on a carpet laid out for Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin in Friday's loss to the Los Angeles Kings.
Bishop made 12 saves in his first NHL career start. Schwarz saved the other five shots.
St. Louis got two goals from right wing Brad Boyes and one goal and one assist each from Keith Tkachuk and Paul Kariya.
Andy McDonald had three assists for the Blues, who have won four of six.
Florida goaltender Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 31 shots.
No player had more than three shots for the Panthers, whose modest two-game winning streak ended.
