Coyotes breaking out of slump

Phoenix (27-28-5) at St. Louis (25-26-8) 8:30 p.m. EST

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) — The Phoenix Coyotes attempt to a tie a
season-high, three-game win streak on Tuesday when they visit
the St. Louis Blues.

Phoenix dropped nine of its first 10 games following the
All-Star break, but has bounced back with a pair of victories,
including a 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday when
Olli Jokinen notched his sixth career hat trick.

The Coyotes have historically dominated the Blues, forging
victories in nine of the last 11 meetings. However, Phoenix had
a six-game win streak in St. Louis snapped during a 4-3 loss on
December 6 in the only other contest between the teams this
season.

The Blues had won three of their previous four games before
dropping a 1-0 overtime decision to the Nashville Predators on
Saturday.

Chris Mason, who made 21 saves in the hard-luck loss, has
started the last 15 games for St. Louis and is 8-3-4 with a 1.68
goals-against average in that span.
