GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Patrik Berglund scored twice during St. Louis' four-goal, third-period rally and the Blues beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 Sunday in goaltender Ryan Miller's debut.
Miller made 23 saves in his first game since being acquired by St. Louis in a five-player deal with Buffalo on Friday. In addition to posting a 284-186-57 record in 10-plus seasons, all with the Sabres, Miller entered the game 6-0-0 with a shutout and a 1.15 goals-against average in his career against Phoenix.
Kevin Shattenkirk and Magnus Paajarvi added goals for the Blues, who had been scoreless for a franchise record 187:44 before scoring three in a nine-plus minute span.
Jeff Halpern scored his 150th career goal and Paul Bissonnette added his first goal since Dec. 14 for the Coyotes, who have lost four straight and five of six.
Miller's St. Louis debut got off to a rocky start courtesy of an unlucky bounce less than three minutes into the game.
With a teammate skating down the slot, Bissonnette wristed a soft shot toward the net. St. Louis defenseman Barret Jackman, seemingly anticipating a harder attempt, dropped to the ice for the block. But the puck ticked off the prone Jackman's left skate and bounced off Miller's right shoulder and into the net for the goal and a 1-0 Phoenix lead at 2:56 of the first.
Halpern made it 2-0 at 7:09 of the second, slipping behind Shattenkirk after the Blues defenseman cleared Bissonnette from the front of the crease and scoring off Yandle's pass from the left boards.
But momentum turned quickly in the third.
Berglund took a backhand pass from Jaden Schwartz and beat Mike Smith from the left of the net to pull St. Louis within 3-1 at 3:18 of the third, his first goal in 17 games.
Just over four minutes later, Paajarvi rifled a shot past Smith from the middle of the faceoff circle to tie the game with 12:26 to go.
Shattenkirk gave the Blues their first lead of the game with 7:14 left when he took a pass at the point, skated into the left faceoff circle and took advantage of a screen from T.J. Oshie to score his first goal since Jan. 21.
Berglund capped the scoring with an unassisted goal with 1:39 left, jumping on a loose puck after Yandle was apparently tripped between the circles in the St. Louis zone and skating the length of the ice before scoring on a sharp wrist shot.
Smith made 26 saves for the Coyotes.
NOTES: The Blues have won four straight in Phoenix. . Shattenkirk's goal was his first since Jan. 23. . Bissonnette set a career high with his seventh point of the season. . Ott, who had been the Sabres' captain before the trade, also was making his St. Louis debut. . St. Louis' power-play goal was its first in its past 28 chances. . Phoenix has surrendered the lead in five of its past 11 games.
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Matt Holliday doubled in both at-bats and drove in two runs Sunday for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 7-1 win over the New York Mets.
Holliday didn't play in the Cardinals' spring training opener on Friday. He singled and walked in two plate appearances as the designated hitter Saturday.
"I feel good," said Holliday, who played left field for the first time this spring. "It's two days into spring training, so I don't put too much into it, but having good at-bats is always a positive. You just try to roll it into the next day."
Holliday's first double came off starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, who's competing for the fifth spot in the Mets' rotation.
"I gave up a run in the first inning today, but I think all my pitches are very good at this point of the year except for my slider. I think that needs a little bit more work," Matsuzaka said through a translator.
A 30-pitch first inning that included two walks kept Cardinals starter Michael Wacha from getting out of the second. He reached his pitch cap after retiring the first two batters of the second without allowing a run.
"I was happy with it," Wacha said. "Arm felt great. Body felt great. Command wasn't where I wanted it to be. Hopefully that will come along."
New York: Manager Terry Collins liked what he saw out of Matsuzaka's first spring start. Collins said the chase for the fifth spot in the starting rotation will likely come down to Matsuzaka or John Lannan.
Matsuzaka began last season in the Cleveland minor league system before being granted his release. He sidestepped a question about his willingness to play in the minors again, saying, "I'll think about that if that happens."
Cardinals: Wacha has impressed manager Mike Matheny with the way he's handled expectations.
"I think he's got a maturity to him, especially as young as he is, to handle that distraction. Because that can be a distraction," Matheny said.
Mets: Shortstop Ruben Tejada was scratched from the lineup after he experienced a tight left hamstring during pregame workouts. Collins said Tejada was held out as a precaution. Tejada will not play in Monday's game against Atlanta, either.
Cardinals: Arm soreness slowed reliever Kevin Siegrist for a couple of days earlier this spring. The left-hander made his first Grapefruit League appearance on Sunday, allowing one hit in a scoreless ninth.
Randy Choate is the Cardinals' lefty specialist out of the bullpen, but early in spring he's facing both right-handed and left-handed hitters. Matheny said frequent lineup changes early in the spring make it difficult to play for matchups, so he would rather see Choate get his work regardless of the opposing hitter.
When minor league play begins, Choate may play in some of those games to get the desired lefty-lefty matchups, with Choate entering major league games later in the spring in situations that would mimic the regular season.
Matheny said he's looking for offseason acquisition Peter Bourjos to be an offensive "menace." He wants Bourjos to grind out his at-bats and get on base, noting that the speedy Bourjos is in scoring position as soon as he gets on base. The Cardinals got him in the offseason trade that sent David Freese to the Angels.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Jabari Brown scored 21 points and Missouri set season bests with 62 percent shooting and 19 assists to whip Mississippi State 85-66 on Saturday.
Jordan Clarkson had 14 points, seven assists and five rebounds and reserve Keanu Post added career bests of 14 points and seven rebounds for the Tigers (20-9, 8-8 SEC), who shook off a pair of losses at Georgia and Alabama. The school is 14-2 at home and reached 20 victories for the sixth straight season, dominating against an opponent that entered with an RPI of 223.
A trio of Missouri big men — Post, Torren Jones and Ryan Rosburg — combined to make all 13 shots. Missouri shot just 32 percent its last time out, losing by 15 at Georgia.
Fred Thomas matched his season best with 18 points for Mississippi State (13-16, 3-13), which has lost 11 in a row — eight of them by double digits. The Bulldogs had a season-best 10 3-pointers, four by Thomas and three by Jacoby Davis.
Brown had five points and Missouri had a pair of 3-pointers in a 15-0 run that put the game away at 68-41 with 11:12 to go. Mississippi State went almost 6 minutes without scoring before Davis' 3-pointer near the mid-point of the second half.
Clarkson went end-to-end twice, getting a layup and dunk, during an 11-2 run that gave Missouri its largest lead of the first half at 39-26 with 3:59 to go. Post's tip-in at the buzzer, allowed after video review, put the Tigers up 45-32 at the break.
Mississippi State played without leading scorer Craig Sword, who attended his grandmother's funeral in Alabama. Sword averages 13 points.
