Dmitrij Jaskin got the go-ahead goal for the second time in four games, and the St. Louis Blues beat the Arizona Coyotes 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Alexander Steen also scored and goalie Jake Allen got a light workload until late for the Blues, who avoided their first three-game losing streak of the season.

St. Louis was penalty-free until defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was whistled for holding with 2:43 to go. The Coyotes pulled their goalie, getting four of their 26 shots on the ensuing power play.

Sam Gagner scored and Mike Smith made 34 saves for Arizona, coming off a shootout victory at Chicago a night earlier.

The Blues are 3-0 against the Coyotes, among the lowest-scoring teams in the NHL. The first two games were blowouts, 6-0 and 6-1.
