Doan's PP goal lifts Coyotes over Flames 2-1 in OT


GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Shane Doan scored a power-play goal at 3:05 of overtime and the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Thursday night to extend their winning streak to a season-high four games.

Doan's game-winner came 58 seconds after Calgary's Mikael Backlund was called for tripping. With the victory, Phoenix moved into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Flames defenseman Blair Jones was hit by a shot in front during the overtime power play and was left ineffective. With essentially two Calgary defenders on the ice, Doan was set up by Radim Vrbata at the left faceoff circle and ripped a one-timer past goalie Leland Irving.
