Phoenix Coyotes fall to the St. Louis Blues in shootout
ST. LOUIS -- Brian Elliott stopped all three chances in a shootout for the second straight game, bouncing back after a late goal denied him a fourth shutout this month, and the St. Louis Blues beat the Coyotes 2-1 on Thursday night to step closer to a playoff berth. Radim Vrbata's power-play goal tied it with 1:07 to go. The Coyotes, who were blanked 4-0 on Monday by the Sharks, capitalized on a boarding penalty against Blues captain David Backes.
