Doan's 350th career goal gives Coyotes 3-2 win over Calgary

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Shane Doan scored his 350th career goal on one of Phoenix's six third-period power plays and the Coyotes went on to beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 on Saturday night.

Chris Summers got his first NHL goal and Rob Klinkhammer also scored to put Phoenix up 2-0 after one period. Calgary got power-play goals from Curtis Glencross and Mikael Backlund to tie it at 2 after two.

After a frustrating series of power plays, Rahim Vrbata rocketed a shot toward the net and Doan deflected it past Joni Ortio for the deciding goal with 11:11 to play.

The Coyotes pulled into a tie with the Western Conference's No. 8 team Dallas with 75 points, but the Stars have played two fewer games and hold the tiebreaker.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
