Smith Leads Coyotes To 4-1 Win Over Avalanche

DENVER (AP) — Mike Smith stopped 39 shots and Radim Vrbata had two goals, lifting the Phoenix Coyotes to a 4-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night.

Taylor Pyatt and Lauri Korpikoski also scored to help the Coyotes win their third straight game.

Ryan O’Reilly had the lone goal for the Avalanche, who drew a small crowd due in part to a storm that blanketed some areas of the Mile High City with nearly a foot of thick, wet snow.

The Coyotes had seven players with assists, including two by Ray Whitney. Vrbata sealed the win when he scored an empty-net goal against his former team with 1:33 remaining.
