The Jobing.com Arena and the Phoenix Coyotes play host to Pacific rival the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.
Vancouver looks to get back in to the win column after Sunday's 4-2 defeat at the hands of visiting Ottawa saddled the team with back to back losses. Neither team played defense early with both scoring twice in the opening frame but it had to be disheartening even more so for Vancouver who held a 2-0 lead only to never light the lamp again. Erik Karlsson, Clarke MacArthur, Cody Ceci and Colin Greening scored for the Senators while Craig Anderson picked up the win with 29 stops. Zack Kassian and Jason Garrison scored for the home team with with the loss going to Eddie Lack who stopped 24 shots.

The Coyotes controlled the Blues attack with a 2-0 lead heading in to the final frame where the Blues exploded for four straight goals to send the Jobing.com Arena crowd home in disbelief. Patrik Berglund scored twice with Kevin Shattenkirk and Magnus Paajarvialso lighting the lamp to give newly acquired Ryan Miller the win in his St Louis debut. Miller made 23 stops for the win with Paul Bissonette and Jeff Halpern the goal scorers for Phoenix. Mike Smith took the loss with all four goals allowed on 30 shots.
