GLENDALE, Ariz. — Mike Smith stopped 38 shots for his third shutout this season and the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-0 Saturday night.



Radim Vrbata, Boyd Gordon and Kyle Chipchura scored for the Coyotes, who won their fifth straight to pull within three points of Chicago in the Western Conference standings.



Phoenix stands in eighth place in the West, just two points ahead of Colorado, which lost to St. Louis 3-2 in overtime earlier Saturday.

ST. LOUIS — Carlo Colaiacovo scored 3:18 into overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.



David Perron added two goals and an assist as the Blues won for the fourth time in five games and improved to 15-0-3 in their last 18 at home. St. Louis, which is among the NHL's best home teams at 23-3-4, has recorded at least one point in a franchise-record 18 straight games overall.

FLAMES 3, CANUCKS 2 (SO)



CALGARY — Jarome Iginla scored the shootout winner and Calgary beat Vancouver to earn an important two points.



The shootout was tied through two rounds, with Olli Jokinen scoring for Calgary and Alex Burrows replying for Vancouver, which set the stage for Iginla — the Flames' captain and all-time leading scorer.



Iginla put the Flames ahead when he faked a shot, drew it around Roberto Luongo and jammed it in while he was falling. Miikka Kiprusoff denied Mason Raymond to clinch the victory.



Mike Cammalleri and rookie Roman Horak scored for Calgary.



Cody Hodgson and David Booth scored as Vancouver closed a 3-0-1 road trip.

James Neal, Chris Kunitz and Dustin Jeffery also scored for the Penguins, who erased an early 2-0 deficit and won their fifth straight home game.

Tim Stapleton, Dustin Byfuglien and Bryan Little all had a goal and an assist for the Jets, but Winnipeg couldn't keep up when the Penguins got going. Ondrej Pavelec stopped just 31 of 39 shots and fell to 1-9 against Pittsburgh.
