Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored 56 seconds into overtime to lift the Phoenix Coyotes over the St. Louis Blues, 3-2, on Tuesday. Maxim Lapierre and Roman Polak scored for the Blues, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Jaroslav Halak made 16 saves. St. Louis was trying for its best start in franchise history on Tuesday. The Blues came into the game with an 11-2-2 record through 15 games, matching the best start by the franchise over that span first set in 1993-94 and done again in 1997-98.The Blues will host the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.

The St. Louis Blues and defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo agreed to a one-year contract on Tuesday. The deal is pending the results of a physical and comes on the heels of Monday's announcement that blueliner Jordan Leopold will undergo surgery to repair ligament damage in his right hand. Leopold is expected to be sidelined a minimum of eight weeks. Colaiacovo, 30, played parts of four seasons with the Blues from 2008-09 to 2011-12. The 2001 first-round pick has registered 30 goals and 110 assists in 376 career games.

Jordan Clarkson notched a career-high 31 points as the Missouri Tigers cruised past the Southern Illinois Salukis, 72-59, at Mizzou Arena. Clarkson shot 12-for-18 from the field and posted five assists in the Tigers' (2-0) winning effort. Jabari Brown and Earnest Ross added 17 and 11 points, respectively. The Tigers shot just 63 percent from the foul line, but they were still able to outscore SIU from the charity stripe, 17-3. Missouri will play Hawaii on Saturday at 7:00.

All 13 major league baseball players who received qualifying offers from their teams have declined them at Monday's deadline. The list includes St. Louis Cardinals slugger Carlos Beltran and Kansas City Royals hurler Ervin Santana. By submitting a qualifying offer, that player's team will receive a compensatory pick between the first and second rounds of June's First-Year Player Draft if he signs elsewhere.

Though hopeful they would retain their full coaching staff for next season, the Cardinals have ended up with at least one vacancy to fill. The Rangers announced Tuesday that they have hired Bengie Molina to serve as first-base coach/catching coordinator. Molina was the Cardinals' assistant hitting coach in 2013, his first season as a Major League coach.
