G Carter Hutton stopped 26 shots as the Bues defeated the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night. Hutton improved to 3-0 this season -- all road wins -- and 11-2 in his last 13 regular-season road games as the Central Division-leading Blues improved to 8-2-1 heading into a four-game homestand. “Maybe I need to get a better bed at home or something,” Hutton joked about his road success spanning the last two seasons. “Those are the games I play sometimes, I play the back-to-backs and they have kind of found a rhythm for me on the road. No matter where I play I just try to compete. The team played great in front of me. Once we made it 2-1 we didn’t really give up much.”
