GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Phoenix got so many power-play chances, one was bound to be successful. And one was all it took. Shane Doan scored his 350th career goal on one of Phoenixs six third-period power plays and the Coyotes went on to beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 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. On the third power play of the final period, Rahim Vrbata rocketed a shot toward the net and Doan deflected it past Joni Ortio for the deciding goal with 11:11 to play. "I dont ever remember it happening for us, always against us," Doan said of the avalanche of penalties against Calgary. "On a power play, you have to stay patient." Doan had hit the post with a shot on a power play earlier in the game. "I was so frustrated," he said. "I thought I had it. And I had some other opportunities. In the first period, I turned the puck over a couple of times that gave them opportunities and a little bit of life. You never want to do that. So to get a way to contribute was nice." The win gave the Coyotes 75 points and pulled them into a tie with Dallas, the Western Conferences No. 8 team. The Stars have played two fewer games and hold the tiebreaker. "I cant remember the last time I saw six penalties like that," Calgarys Mike Cammalleri said. "We need to learn a little lesson there and they had more discipline. Its a tough one to take." The Coyotes Mike Smith, strong all night, had 29 saves, while Ortio stopped 23 shots. Phoenix had five power plays through 10 minutes of the first 13:13 of the third period. Sutton scored on a slick deflection of Lauri Korpikoskis pass just 4:35 into the game. His first NHL goal came in his 34th career game. Sutton also was on the ice at crunch time in the waning minutes of the game. "Ive been with the organization a long time," he said. "I was drafted in 2006. Its great to be put in those situations." Phoenix made it 2-0 with 9:43 left in the opening period thanks to a miscue by Ortio. Ortio, recalled from Abbotsford of the American Hockey League on Feb. 3, and playing in his seventh NHL game, ventured behind the net to try to clear the puck but lost control of it. It went right to Klinkhammer, who tapped it into the empty net for his 10th goal. Calgary cut the lead to 2-1 on a power-play goal by Glencross 7:46 into in the second period. With Derek Morris in the penalty box for holding, Glencross positioned himself directly in front of the net, and glanced Cammalleris sizzling shot past Smith. Another power-play goal tied it for Calgary moments later. Backlund scored from a crowd in front of the net and it was 2-2 with 4:23 left in the second period. The Flames nearly got another goal in the final seconds of the second when Cammalleri got the puck point-blank in front of the net, but Smith was able to knock the shot away with his right pad. It was one of several shots from up close that Smith blocked. Phoenix was playing its first game back after a four-games-in six-days trip to the East. "We got up 2-0," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "They pushed hard in the second and got themselves back in the game, but the third period, we played hard and drew some penalties. Fortunately, our power play which has been our strength all year, gave us the winning goal." On Friday night, Calgary trailed at Dallas 3-1 with eight minutes to play in regulation before rallying to force overtime, then win in the shootout 4-3.

Dale Hunter Jersey .Y. - Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs didnt flinch in the face of adversity.TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton said he has improved every day and is hopeful he will be cleared to play in the Cardinals game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.Speaking to reporters for the first time this week, Stanton said after Thursdays practice that he is symptom free and hopes to pass tests on Friday that would clear him to play.Stanton sustained a concussion in last Sundays loss at Denver. The status of quarterback Carson Palmer remains uncertain as he works his way back from an injured nerve in his throwing shoulder.If Stanton and Palmer cant play, the start would go to rookie Logan Thomas.Theres a lot of questions in our quarterback room right now, Stanton said.Stanton said that the test he took on Wednesday still found him lagging in some areas.But asked if he thought he had a chance to play Sunday, Stanton said without a doubt.I dont know about chances-wise or percentages or anything like that, but Ive improved every day. Thats the big thing, he said. Ive felt more comfortable with everything a€” being around light and not feeling dizzy or any of that stuff, being able to focus and concenntrate, so hopefully tomorrow will be another step forward in that process and we can go from there.ddddddddddddFor the first time since he was hurt, Stanton was cleared for non-contact activity on Thursday.He said he just loosened up, kind of moved around, threw, went through the game plan stuff, just got a feel for everything. It was my first day of really kind of diving into it.Palmer, who was listed as limited in practice on Thursday, went down in the season opener with a nerve injury in his throwing shoulder, and Stanton has started the three games since. He helped the team beat the New York Giants and San Francisco before last Sundays loss to the Broncos.Thomas, a fourth-round draft pick out of Virginia Tech, played in the fourth quarter of that game, completing one of eight passes, but that one completion went 81 yards, to Andre Ellington, for a touchdown.In case Stanton and Palmer cant go on Sunday, Arizona signed quarterback Dennis Dixon to the practice squad earlier in the week. Dixon would back up Thomas if thats necessary.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale NFL T-shirts Cheap Jerseys 2019 China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Hoodies China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
