Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov sparkles as he leads Coyotes past Canucks @NHL

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 34 shots, and Shane Doan scored his 27th goal in the Phoenix Coyotes' 5-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

Daniel Winnik, Ed Jovanovski, Viktor Tikhonov and Matthew Lombardi added goals in Phoenix's highest-scoring game since beating Los Angeles 6-3 on Feb. 21.

The four-goal margin was the largest for Phoenix this season.

Bryzgalov lost the shutout when Alex Burrows slammed in a puck that rebounded off the back boards with 1:45 left in the game.

The five goals allowed was the most Vancouver surrendered since a 5-3 loss Jan. 28 at home against Nashville.

The Canucks lost in regulation for just the second time in their last 11 games.
