The Calgary Flames played like a team who were playing their second game of a back-to-back Monday night in Phoenix.
Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith made 30 saves and Raffi Torres and Antoine Vermette had a goal and an assist each as Phoenix defeated Calgary 4-0.
David Moss and Oliver Ekman-Larsson also had a multi-point game as they each had two assists. The Coyotes' defencemen of Ekman-Larsson and Zbynek Michalek were each a +3 for the Coyotes according to www.tsn.ca.
Defenceman Keith Yandle scored the game winning goal for the Coyotes only 41 seconds into the hockey game.
Coyotes captain Shane Doan is still playing strong. At 36 years of age he caused havoc throughout the night and was making Flames' goaltender Danny Taylor's night uncomfortable. Taylor was making his first start in his NHL career.
With the loss, the Flames fall to 5-5-3 and are three points back of the slumping San Jose Sharks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Flames next play Los Angeles in Calgary on Wednesday.
