Dominik Hasek led the way with 24 saves and the Detroit Red Wings spoiled the retirement of Brett Hull's number with a 5-1 victory over the Blues in the opener of a Central Division home-and-home set at Scottrade Center. Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, Valtteri Filppula, Robert Lang and Dan Cleary scored for the Red Wings, who have won three of their last four games following an 0-2-3 skid. Hull, who finished his brilliant 19-year NHL career in third place on the all- time goal scoring list with 741, was introduced and enjoyed a lengthy standing ovation. Former teammate Kelly Chase delivered a speech among others, and team president John Davidson informed Hull that the block of Clark Avenue in front of the arena will be renamed "Brett Hull Way". Hull then addressed the crowd and several minutes later stood with his father -- and former NHL great -- Bobby and his children while his No. 16 banner was lifted to the rafters. Blues goaltender Manny Legace struggled and was pulled in the first period in favor of Jason Bacashihua, who was recently recalled from AHL affiliate Peoria. Bacashihua made 18 saves. The Blues play at Detroit on Thursday night at 6:30 on KSMO Radio.
