ST. LOUIS - Francis Wathier and Vernon Fiddler each had a goal and an assist, leading the Dallas Stars to a 4-0 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.

Andrew Raycroft stopped 33 shots for the win.

The Blues lost forward B.J. Crombeen, who broke his left shoulder blade and is out indefinitely. Crombeen was injured in the third period.

Jake Dowell and Tomas Vincour also scored, and Trevor Daley added a pair of assists for the Stars, who ended their pre-season winning six of seven games.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 20 shots, but the Blues, who won five of their eight pre-season games, were shut out for the second time at home.

Dowell scooped a shot over Halak for a 1-0 lead at 5:25 of the first. Wathier scored on the Stars' first power play, deflecting Daley's shot from the point screening Halak at 8:29 of the first for a 2-0 lead.

Fiddler beat Halak with a wrist shot at 5:01 of the second period for a 3-0 lead, and Vincour scored from in tight at 11:16 of the second to make it 4-0.
