    Offense has been harder to come by for the St. Louis Blues since losing forward Jaden Schwartz to an ankle injury. On Saturday, the Blues won for the second time in four Carlos Lee Jersey games since Schwartz sustained his injury, and did so on the back of backup goaltender Carter Hutton.While the high-powered Winnipeg Jets fired 48 shots at Hutton, he stopped each and every one of them, setting the record for the most saves by a Blues goaltender in a shutout, and helping St. Louis to a 2-0 victory on Saturday at Scottrade Center.Carter Hutton turned aside all 48 shots he faced to establish a record for most saves in a shutout, eclipsing the mark set by Chris Mason on Nov. 25, 2008 at NSH (47). NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) Hutton had last Houston Astros Jersey started a game Dec. 1 in a 4-1 lo s against the Los Angeles Kings. Since then, the Blues have been riding the hot hand of Jake Allen, who has gone 4-2-1 since Dec. 1 with a Andy Pettitte Jersey .925 save-percentage.But playing the first of a back-to-back set against Winnipeg, head coach Mike Yeo . Yeo’s hunch paid off.Hutton didn’t have to wait long to get involved on Saturday coming off his long layoff: The Jets took 15 shots in the first period, forcing Hutton into action early and often.The Jets didn’t let up in the second period, upping their shot total to 21, but Hutton stood tall.Hutton finished off his night by making 12 saves in Anthony Gose Jersey the third period to preserve his shutout.Winnipeg had its No. 2 goalie of its own in net on Saturday, with Steve Hector Rondon Jersey Mason making his first start since Nov. 25 after coming off injured reserve. He made 28 saves, but surrendered a power-play goal in the first period off the stick of Vladimir Tarasenko, all the offense the Blues would need.Mason did produce a highlight of his own in the crease, reaching back for this diving stick save on Oskar Sundqvist.
