At Glendale, Arizona, Ladislav Nagy scored the deciding goal in a shootout, giving Phoenix a victory and ending St. Louis' three-game winning streak.

The first two skaters for both teams failed to score in the shootout before the Blues' Doug Weight beat Mikael Tellqvist. But Shane Doan kept the Coyotes alive with a goal against Manny Legace and then Tellqvist blocked Peter Sejna's shot to set up Nagy's winner.

Ed Jovanovski scored twice and had an assist for Phoenix and nearly won it in overtime when his shot careened off the crossbar with less than a minute to play.

Jovanovski broke a 2-2 tie with a power-play goal in the waning seconds of the second period and then broke a 3-3 tie with another late in the third. Third-period goals by Dennis Wideman and Sejna tied it again for St. Louis.
