ST. LOUIS (AP) — Richard Panik and Vinnie Hinostroza scored to help the Arizona Coyotes beat the St. Louis Blues 3-1 on Tuesday.

Darcy Kuemper made 39 saves just one night after he allowed four goals on 16 shots before he was pulled during the second period of Arizona's 7-1 loss in Chicago. He has won 10 of his last 12 starts to improve to 23-16-5 this season.

The Coyotes have won 12 of 16 to move one point ahead of Minnesota for the final Western Conference wild card.

Jaden Schwartz scored for St. Louis, and Jordan Binnington stopped 19 shots.
