ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Cal Clutterbuck scored for the third time in two nights, and the Minnesota Wild beat St. Louis 3-1 on Saturday while sending Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak to an early exit.

Halak was pulled for Ty Conklin midway through the second period after Kyle Brodziak's goal made it 3-0 Minnesota. Antti Miettinen also scored a power-play goal for the Wild, who got another strong start by goalie Niklas Backstrom and outshot the Blues 31-25.

Patrik Berglund scored for St. Louis, but that wasn't nearly enough.

Clutterbuck, also the NHL leader in hits, leads the team with a career-high 17 goals.
