Adam Cracknell scored his first and second goals of the season to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 shootout win over the Blackhawks in Chicago Thursday night.
Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk scored the deciding goal in the sixth round of the shootout. Cracknell, a right winger, was recalled from AHL Peoria by the Blues on Tuesday. He was sent down March 18 after recording two assists in eight games with the Blues. Also scoring in regulation for St. Louis was David Backes, who ended a 14-game scoring drought with only his fourth of the season.
