Coyotes roll to 4-0 win over FlamesPosted: Updated:
Mike Smith stopped 29 shots, Keith Yandle scored in the opening minute of the first period and Mikkel Boedker did the same to start the third, lifting the Phoenix Coyotes to a 4-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Monday night.
Yandle knocked in a rebound 41 seconds into the game for his fourth point in two games and Boedker scored 30 seconds into the third by squeezing a puck between Calgary goalie Danny Taylor's pads in front of a standing-room only crowd at Jobing.com Arena.
That was enough for Smith, who was sharp all night for his 22nd career shutout and third this season.
Antoine Vermette and Raffi Torres each added goals in the third period, David Moss had two assists against his former team and Oliver Ekman-Larsson added two assists in Phoenix's sixth win in eight games.
Taylor stopped 33 shots in his first NHL start.
