Scott Mellanby is no longer the leader of one NHL statistic. And that’s just fine by him. The Blues winger went ballistic last night scoring four goals as the Blues beat the Coyotes 6-3 in St. Louis. Before the game, Mellanby was the league’s leading active goal scorer with out a hat trick. All four of his tallies came on the power play, two of them in the third period. The Blues led 3-0 going into the third before Phoenix got hot and scored three times. Curtis Sanford, despite allowing three goals, got the win. Pavol Demitra added three assists. Mellanby became the first Blue to score four in a game since Brett Hull did it in 1995. The victory finished a four-game sweep at home. St. Louis moved to within two points of the first place Red Wings. They can move into a tie tonight as the two square off in Detroit. When they hit the ice, the Blues will have Keith Tkachuk who’s done serving a four-game suspension. Doug Weight who’s been out with a broken bone in his face could return this evening as well.
