Antti Raanta stopped 34 shots for his third shutout of the season and the Arizona Coyotes scored three goals in the second period and beat the playoff-chasing St. Louis Blues 6-0 on Saturday night in Glendale, Ariz.
Four of the Coyotes’ goals came from defensemen, including Luke Schenn, who scored his first goal in his 61st game of the season. Schenn also energized a large crowd and his teammates with a powerful check of Blues forward Scottie Upshall early in the second period.
Richard Panik added a goal just before the hit, and 28-win Arizona won its 10th this month.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal and assisted on another second-period goal, Jakob Chychrun, Alex Goligosksi and Zac Rinaldo scored, and Max Domi and Dylan Strome had three assists each for the Coyotes. Panik had an assist and Derek Stepan had two.
The Blues entered 8-1-1 in their last 10 games but ended the night tied with Colorado for the second wild-card spot in the West at 92 points through 78 games.
