The Phoenix Coyotes picked up a win on Saturday night when they defeated the Buffalo Sabres at home by a final score of 4-2.
Shane Doan got the Coyotes on the board first with a slap shot midway through the first period. Luke Adam tied the game for Buffalo on a tip-in shortly afterward.
After Buffalo went ahead 2-1 in the second period on a Patrick Kaleta goal, Radim Vrbata and Paul Bissonnette scored goals for the Coyotes just 66 seconds apart and never looked back. Vrbata would also add an open-net goal late in the third period.
Following the Kaleta goal in the second period, the Sabres were held scoreless by goaltender Mike Smith. Smith was busy all evening, and finished 43-for-45 in save chances. Phoenix only ended up having 29 shots on goal compared to Buffalo's 45, but the Coyotes made the most of their opportunities to walk away with another win.
