GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Patrik Berglund scored twice during St. Louis’ four-goal, third-period rally and the Blues beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 Sunday in goaltender Ryan Miller’s debut.
Miller made 23 saves in his first game since being acquired by St. Louis in a five-player deal with Buffalo on Friday. In addition to posting a 284-186-57 record in 10-plus seasons, all with the Sabres, Miller entered the game 6-0-0 with a shutout and a 1.15 goals-against average in his career against Phoenix.
Kevin Shattenkirk and Magnus Paajarvi added goals for the Blues, who had been scoreless for a franchise record 187:44 before scoring three in a nine-plus minute span.
Jeff Halpern scored his 150th career goal and Paul Bissonnette added his first goal since Dec. 14 for the Coyotes, who have lost four straight and five of six.
