BLUES vs. COYOTES
When, where: 7 p.m. Tuesday, Enterprise Center
TV, radio: FSM, WXOS (101.1 FM)
About the Coyotes:
Arizona comes to St. Louis tired but brimming with confidence after defeating Washington — the NHL’s best team through the first quarter of the season — 4-3 in a shootout Monday in the nation’s capital. With the victory, Arizona (10-6-2) moved into third place in the Pacific Division with 22 points. The Coyotes have been better on the road than at home, with a 6-2-2 record away from Gila River Arena.
Antti Raanta got the start in goal against the Capitals, meaning Darcy Kuemper is the likely starter against St. Louis. Kuemper has played better than his 7-5 record would indicate, with a 2.00 goals against average and a .930 save percentage.
The Blues have had troubles recently against Arizona, going 1-2 in the season series both last season and in 2017-18. Their only win last season was 4-0 on Valentine’s Day — the eighth win during their franchise-record 11-game winning streak.
