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

We never really stopped believing in ourselves. We were hearing a lot of things about our team in the regular season. Seems like we put things back together at the right time and we're back in the finals with this group. We know what we have in this room, we believe in each other, we believe in the organization and it really matter what other people say.
