Nick Schmaltz and Conor Garland scored in a shootout, and the Coyotes snapped the St. Louis Blues' seven-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory Tuesday night.

 

The Coyotes landed at 1 a.m. Tuesday after flying in from Washington, but waited more than two hours on the tarmac because there was no crew available to unload the plane. They finally got to their hotel rooms around 3:30 a.m.

 

Garland's power-play goal tied it 2-all at 5:58 of the third period. St. Louis native Clayton Keller had a goal and an assist against his hometown team.

 

Jaden Schwartz and Colton Parayko scored for the Blues, but the defending Stanley Cup champions dropped to 0-2 in shootouts this season.

 

Arizona improved to 3-0 in tiebreakers after winning in a shootout for the second consecutive night. The Coyotes topped Washington 4-3 on Monday.

 

Schmaltz is 4 for 6 in shootouts during his career. Garland is 3 for 4.

 

Darcy Kuemper made 33 saves for Arizona.

 

St. Louis goalie Jordan Binnington stopped 20 shots.

 

The Blues are at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday.
