NHL: St. Louis 6, Phoenix 3

March 8, 2013 at 12:00 AM   |   Comments

GLENDALE, Ariz., March 7 (UPI) -- Patrik Berglund scored the first two of five consecutive St. Louis goals Thursday, powering the Blues to a 6-3 victory over Phoenix.

Shane Doan gave the Coyotes a 2-1 lead 41 seconds into the second period, but St. Louis then took over with a barrage of offense against goaltender Mike Smith.

Berglund tied it with a slap shot and then put a backhander past Smith 2:02 later to give the Blues the lead for good.

Scott Nichol added a second-period goal for St. Louis, after which Vladimir Sobotka and Alex Pietrangelo scored in the third.

St. Louis halted a two-game skid with rookie Jake Allen making 23 saves in the victory. Allen was recalled from the American Hockey League earlier this week.

Smith gave up all six goals on 29 shots.
