With the Coyotes coming off of a successful two-game road trip through Minnesota and Nashville, they came home to face another Central Division team in the struggling St. Louis Blues.

Goaltender Adin Hill was called up from the Tucson Roadrunners due to injuries to both Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper, started his second straight game after posting a shutout against Nashville on Nov. 29.

During the first period, the Coyotes controlled the play, drawing four penalties. After the Blues third straight penalty, the Coyotes finally cashed in on the chance.

Defenseman Jakob Chychrun was about to net his first goal of the season with an assist from Clayton Keller at 12:27 of the first period.

Michael Grabner went down after a high stick to the face from rookie Blues forward Sammy Blais who was given a double minor for high sticking. The Coyotes were unable to convert on the power play.

The Coyotes outshot the Blues 14 to 6 in the first period.

Grabner did not return to the game due to an upper-body injury, leaving the Coyotes down a forward for the last 40 minutes of the game.

The Coyotes started to find their groove in the second period.

The newest Coyote Nick Schmaltz fed a clean pass to Keller at 58 seconds of the second period, 2-0 Coyotes.

Robert Thomas of the Blues tipped a Jay Bouwmeester shot from the point at 1:26 of the second period, 2-1 Coyotes.

Shortly after that Christian Fischer scored from Richard Panik and Derek Stepan at 2:59 of the second period, 3-1 Coyotes.

The Coyotes continued to pressure the Blues with Nick Cousins and Richard Panik both scoring to make the score 5-1 Coyotes at the end of the second period.

The Coyotes outshot the Blues 24 to 11 in the second period.

The Coyotes continued their pressure through the third period. Clayton Keller was able to get Alex Goligoski open and the Coyotes made it 6-1 at 14:08 of the third period.

Adin Hill was able to stop the rest of the shots and the Coyotes won 6-1 over the faltering St. Louis Blues. Hill has stopped 69 of the 70 shots he has faced since he came into the net in the third period against the Minnesota Wild on Nov. 27.

After the game, there was no update on the injured Michael Grabner, per Head Coach Rick Tocchet. Tocchet had not been able to touch base with the doctors just yet but described the situation as “scary.”

The Coyotes are back over .500 with a record of 12-11-2 with 26 points so far this season.
