ST. LOUIS (AP) - T.J. Oshie scored twice and Jaroslav Halak made 20 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night.

The Blues have won eight of nine and improved to 7-1-1 against the Coyotes since the start of the 2011-2012 season.

Phoenix lost its season-high fourth consecutive game.

Oshie recorded his second two-goal game in the last six contests since he was named to the U.S. Olympic team.

Halak improved to 19-6-3 with his second successive win after missing five games due to illnesses. He robbed David Moss from close range with a stick save early in the third period.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored for Phoenix, which has been outscored 16-6 during the four-game skid.
