      Petr Mrazek made 26 saves in his NHL debut, leading the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.


      Detroit halted a two-game skid with its second win in three tries against St. Louis this season.


      The Blues, who beat Detroit 6-0 on Jan. 19, dropped their third in a row. They have lost three successive games in regulation for the first time since Feb. 27 to March 5, 2011.


      Daniel Cleary and Jakub Kindl scored first-period goals for the Red Wings, who beat St. Louis 5-3 in Detroit on Friday. Cory Emmerton and Damien Brunner added second-period goals 91 seconds apart.


      Mrazek, recalled from Grand Rapids on Monday, stopped the first 14 shots he faced. Jimmy Howard, the team's No. 1 goalie, was given the night off after starting the first nine games of the season.
