ST. LOUIS (AP) -- David Backes scored twice, and Ryan Miller made 16 saves in another win as the St. Louis Blues beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Monday night.
The Blues are 7-0-1 since Miller was acquired by trade from Buffalo. St. Louis has won three straight and eight of nine.
Western Conference-leading St. Louis has an NHL-best 101 points. It is the sixth time in franchise history that the Blues have reached 100 points.
Backes has 23 goals this season. Brendan Morrow added a goal, and Jay Bouwmeester had two assists in the Blues' win.
Eric O'Dell had the lone goal for Winnipeg, and Al Montoya made 23 saves.
The Blues won despite the absence of players Vladimir Tarasenko and T.J. Oshie.
Tarasenko is expected to miss six weeks because of a hand injury sustained Saturday against Nashville. Oshie, whose first child was born earlier Monday, should be back for Wednesday's game at Chicago.
Backes broke a 1-1 tie with a power-play goal at 13:09 of the third period when he swatted in a rebound of Ian Cole's shot.
With 1:11 left, Backes was awarded a goal when he broke in on the Jets' empty net and was pulled down by Jacob Trouba.
After a listless first period, St. Louis took a 1-0 lead just 1:44 into the second. After Winnipeg's Devin Setoguchi failed to control a bouncing puck, Derek Roy took it and broke in on left wing. He centered a pass to Morrow on the right side for a shot into the open net.
The Jets took advantage during 4-on-4 play to tie it at 1:55 of the third. Evander Kane skated down left wing with O'Dell on a 2-on-1 break. Kane centered a pass to O'Dell, who faked a shot and then beat Miller with a backhand.
NOTES: St. Louis is 38-1-5 when scoring first and 30-0-4 when leading after two periods. ... Winnipeg is 8-13-5 against the Central Division. ... Blues coach Ken Hitchcock moved into sole possession of third place on the team's career win list with 119.

BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania school district is giving its tiger-head logo a face-lift after a complaint from the University of Missouri that the feline face was too similar to its own image.
The (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise says university officials sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Southern Columbia Area School District in November.
Superintendent Paul Caputo says the emblem is on the Columbia County district's marquee, the new gym floor and various booster and sports-affiliated websites and gear.
He says the two institutions have come to an agreement under which Southern will tweak its logo enough that it's not infringing on the University of Missouri's copyright.
The changes will be phased in slowly instead of changing everything at once, although apparel will no longer be made with the emblem.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers are putting more money into the budget to try to speed up the results of newborn blood screenings.
A budget plan pending in the House would add about $150,000 for the state public health laboratory to conduct newborn screenings on Saturdays and have a courier service on Sundays.
The money was inserted into the budget last week by House Budget Committee Chairman Rick Stream, of Kirkwood. It's supported by House member Sheila Solon, of Blue Springs.
Solon cited research showing that Missouri ranks poorly in how quickly the newborn blood samples reach labs for testing. She told The Kansas City Star that she hopes the additional money can help speed up the process and potentially save lives. Missouri screens babies for 79 different health conditions.
