Doan, Coyotes edge Flames
Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Shane Doan scored a tiebreaking power-play goal at 8:49 of the third period and the Phoenix Coyotes edged the Calgary Flames, 3-2.
The Coyotes squandered a two-goal, first-period lead but won for the fourth straight time against the Flames at home.
Mike Smith made 30 saves, helping Phoenix in its push for a playoff spot. The win gave the Coyotes 75 points, tying them with Dallas. The Stars, however, maintained their hold on the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference because they have played two fewer games.
Mike Cammalleri assisted on both power-play goals Calgary scored in the second period.
Joni Ortio stopped 22 shots for the Flames, who had posted consecutive wins over Anaheim and Dallas.
Summers gave Phoenix a 1-0 lead with the first NHL goal of his career. The defenseman joined the rush and scored on a tip at 4:35 of the first.
The Coyotes went up 2-0 when Rob Klinkhammer stole the puck from Ortio and deposited it into the open net at 9:43. Ortio had gone behind his cage to handle a puck that was dumped into the zone.
Calgary used its power play to make a comeback.
Curtis Glencross got his stick on Cammalleri's wrister from atop the right circle at 7:46 of the middle stanza.
Cammalleri set up Mikael Backlund for the tying goal. Backlund was positioned near the crease and redirected Cammalleri's pass out of the right corner with 4:23 remaining.
Doan put the Coyotes back on top by deflecting Keith Yandle's point shot.
The Coyotes are 9-1-0 at home versus Calgary since the start of the 2009-10 season ... Yandle had two assists ... Phoenix was 1-for-8 on the power play, while Calgary was 2-for-4 with the man advantage.
