First Period -
Jaden Schwartz put the Blues on the board with less than three minutes to go in the period. Brayden Schenn waited out an ill timed Coyote slide to get the initial shot on net. Kuemper was able to make the initial save. Schwartz was there to tap home the rebound and make it 1-0 Blues after the first 20. Schwartz (4) from Schenn (7) and Alex Pietrangelo (11)
Shots after one - 9-8 in favor of Arizona.
Second Period -
As great as the diving play was for David Perron in the first was...The exact opposite was true of this turnover in the second. Perron turned the puck over to Clayton Keller. With no one around him, Keller was able to beat Binnington and tie the game at one. Oh, and can anyone tell me where this kid is from again? Keller(4) unassisted, but a non official assist can go to 57 on this one. (Sorry DP)
Colton Parayko tied the game at two on a wrist shot. Oskar Sundqvist with the great pass that hit Parayko in stride. Parayko strolled right in and got a wide open wrister on Kuemper that he wasn’t stopping. The Blues took the 2-1 lead into the locker room after two. Parayko scored goal number one on the year assisted by Sunqvist (3) and Ivan Barbashev (5)
The Blues fired 16 shots on goal in the second compared to just 6 for the Coyotes.
Third Period -
Clayton Keller once again found himself on the scoresheet. With the Coyotes on the power play, (which they got from a questionable trip by Justin Faulk) Keller set up Conor Garland’s goal right in front of the net. Just like that the game was tied. Garland (8) from Keller (9) and Christian Dvorak (3)
Shots in the final frame were 7-5 in favor of the Blues.
The overtime period came and went, with the Blues getting called for too many men. At least they were able to kill it off. But weren’t able to win it in the gimmick portion of the contest as the Coyotes scored two straight shootout goals to win this one 3-2.
The Coyotes played last night. They played a hard game against the Caps and won that one in a shootout. Then they got on a plane and reportedly didn’t get to their team hotel until 3:30-4 am. The Blues played well. Some nights just don’t go your way. Tonight was apparently one of them. The Blues head to Columbus Friday to take on the Blue Jackets.

From the Disney Plus Hype Machine -
Schwartz isn’t wrong here. They did have their chances. Schwartz could have easily had another goal on the night. FSMW had the Blues scoring chances at 17(?) Oh and going 0-3 on the power play didn’t help either.
Jaden Schwartz: "We had our chances, we had our looks. Just didn't find the back of the net. We certainly had a lot of chances, a lot of o-zone time, but still get to the inside a little bit more as a team." #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) November 13, 2019
Or 2-1 for sure.
I don’t know Sunny. 35 shots on net seems like it should be enough. Maybe not shoot at his chest so much? Looking at you Justin. (I’m sorry, I love you)
Sundqvist on what the #stlblues need to improve on after their shootout loss to the #Yotes: "Just need to get some more pucks in the net. That's what hockey's about, and we didn't do that tonight enough." pic.twitter.com/YcP1YLzwHV— FOX Sports Midwest (@FSMidwest) November 13, 2019
AGAIN CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHERE HE’S FROM?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Clayton Keller on getting to play in front of friends and family at Enterprise Center: "I love it. Not much time here — less than 24 hours since we were on a back-to-back — but it's always so special to see family and friends here after the game."#Yotes | #stlblues pic.twitter.com/K3mxSjKd3u— FOX Sports Midwest (@FSMidwest) November 13, 2019
