Schwartz’s first career hat trick leads Blues past Coyotes


Jaden Schwartz scored his first career hat tick and rookie Jori Lehtera scored his first NHL goal as the St. Louis Blues easily took care of the Arizona Coyotes 6-1 Saturday night.

Here’s Schwartz’s 3rd, with two seconds remaining in the game, to complete the trick:

David Backes and Alexander Steen had the other St. Louis goals while Vladimir Tarasenko chipped in with three assists.

Lauri Korpikoski had the lone Arizona goal.

Jake Allen made 24 saves for the win while Mike Smith allowed six goals on 36 shots in the loss.

The news wasn’t all good for the Blues however as forward Paul Stastny left the game early in the first period with what looked like a left shoulder injury.
