ST. LOUIS (AP) - Brian Elliott made 22 saves and Jaden Schwartz had his first two-goal game as the St. Louis Blues earned home-ice advantage for the first-round of the playoffs by defeating the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 Saturday night.

The Blues won 12 of their last 15 games to capture fourth place in the Western Conference.

Elliott and the Blues were helped by facing a Chicago lineup that was devoid of almost every regular.

Ben Smith, who was playing in his first game of the season, scored for Chicago.

The two-goal game was the first of Schwartz's career. Patrik Berglund also scored for St. Louis and David Backes had two assists to give him 300 points for his career.
