GLENDALE, Ariz. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – One night after the Stars outlasted the Coyotes in Dallas, the two teams were back at it on Saturday in Glendale. This time it was the Coytoes who came out on top.
Former Stars net-minder Mike Smith stopped 17 shots and the Phoenix Coyotes were at their tight-checking best in a 2-0 win.
Nick Johnson scored his third goal of the season and Mikkel Boedker his second for the Coyotes, who have points in four straight games.
The Coyotes have gotten back to their stay-at-home style that helped them reach the Western Conference finals last season.
Phoenix kept the Stars to the outside offensively most of the night while getting sticks and their bodies in the way whenever they tried to shoot. Smith was there to turn away anything that reached the net for his 20th career shutout, first this season.
