ST. Javi Martinez Bayern Munich Jersey . LOUIS -- St. Louis goalie Jaroslav Halak is healthy once again. The Phoenix Coyotes found that out the hard way Tuesday night. Halak made 20 saves and T.J. Oshie scored twice as the Blues rode their hot goalie to a 2-1 win. 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. Halak improved to 19-6-3 with his second successive win since missing five games due to an illness. The mysterious ailment, diagnosed as a severe flu, sapped his strength and forced him to the sidelines from Dec. 29 to Jan. 7. "I had a fever that wouldnt go away and I kept getting tired real fast," Halak said. "Now that the virus is gone, Im feeling pretty good." Halak made several impressive stops in the third period to protect a 2-1 lead. He robbed David Moss from close range with a stick save two minutes into the period. He also thwarted Antoine Vermette and Tim Kennedy down the stretch. "This is a game where the goalie saved us," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He was terrific from start to finish." Phoenix outshot St. Louis 8-2 in the third period and dominated play. "I thought we pushed hard," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said. "We gave ourselves a chance to get some points." But Halak would not budge. "Youve got to give them credit, they came out really hard in the third," Halak said. "Im glad we got the two points, but we all know we can play better." Halak made 33 saves in a 5-0 shutout in Calgary on Thursday. He says he was not 100 per cent in that game, but believes he is very close to returning to top form. He felt Tuesdays performance was one of his best this season. His teammates agreed. "He made some huge saves," Oshie said. "This game could have gone the other way, a 5-2 victory (for Phoenix). He came up big and. thats what we expect from him every night." "Hes a huge reason we won," captain David Backes added. "He got us the two points. We need to play better in front of him. Hopefully, the other 19 of us learned a lesson." Oshie recorded his second two-goal game in the last six contests since he was named to the U.S. Olympic team. Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored for Phoenix, which has been outscored 16-6 during the four-game skid. Oshie, who has 10 goals, ripped a shot behind Mike Smith midway through the first period off a back pass from Alex Pietrangelo. Oshie scored on the power play in the second period. Jaden Schwartz provided a screen on Oshies shot from just inside the blue line. Ekman-Larsson scored a power play goal on a high wrist shot with 48 seconds left in the second period. The Blues had killed their previous 21 penalties. Phoenix RW Radim Vrbata hit the crossbar with 4:16 remaining the game. The Coyotes fell to 3-8-4 in their last 15 games. Ekman-Larsson said his team should be able to gain some momentum from a strong third-period effort that simply fell short against a hot goalie. "I think this is a step in the right direction," he said. "This was our best period in a long time." Smith fell to 15-13-8. He has not won since Dec. 21 covering nine appearances. St. Louis, which has won its last five home games, has a plus-61 goal differential, the best in the NHL. Notes: St. Louis D Roman Polak returned after missing 10 games with a fractured ankle. ... Phoenix C Mike Ribeiro left Mondays contest against Winnipeg with a lower body injury but returned on Tuesday. ...The Coyotes remain the only team in the NHL without a short-handed goal this season. ...

Joe Corona Jersey .S. captain Tom Watson went with experience and a gut feeling Tuesday night when he filled out his Ryder Cup team with Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson.BERLIN -- Nuremberg drew 1-1 at Stuttgart on Friday in Gertjan Verbeeks first game in charge of the relegation-threatened Bundesliga team. The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. Stuttgarts Vedad Ibisevic rifled the spot kick into the top left corner for the Bosnians league-leading seventh goal of the season. But then U.S. defender Timmy Chandler set up Josip Drmic to equalize with a cool finish beyond goalkeeper Sven Ulreich in off the far post three minutes later. "It was a bad start but then we scored a nice goal and we had our chances. Im satisfied with the 1-1," said Verbeek, who was appointed Tuesday in place of the sacked Michael Wiesinger. Stuttgart striker Martin Harnik had two great chances and Ibrahima Traore hit the post in the first half for the home side, while Daniel Ginczek came closest for the visitors in the second half. Maxim had a golden chance to win it in injury time only for Nuremberg defender Emanuel Pogatetz to make a crucial clearance. Jeffrey Bruma Netherland Jersey. "The results not too bad, but the football needs to improve," said Verbeek, whose side remains in the relegation play-off spot ahead of the rest of the weekends games. Nuremberg defender Per Nilsson lamented the sides seventh draw from 10 games. "Unfortunately theyve been part of our season up to now," the Swede said. "We were just missing that little bit of luck. But the result is OK, I guess." Nuremberg will take confidence from the fact Stuttgart coach Thomas Schneider is unbeaten since he took over from Bruno Labbadia, who was fired after three league games. "When a new coach comes along theres new fire in the team, everyone wants to make a good impression," Ulreich said. "We knew it would be difficult tonight." Stuttgart missed the chance to go provisionally fourth. Cheap China JerseysCheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From ChinaChina NFL JerseysCheap JerseysCheap Jerseys China ' ' '
