Phoenix Coyotes shut out Vancouver Canucks: By The Numbers
Here's a look back at the game, by the numbers.
Though struggling mightily over the course of the season, goalie Mike Smith and the Coyotes looked different on Thursday. Smith got his first shutout of the season, staving off a plethora of power plays and shots.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson managed to extend his points streak to four on Thursday by assisting Antoine Vermette for the game's only goal. The defenseman had tallied goals in his previous two games.
Of the last 4:04 of the contest, four minutes were spent on the power play for the Canucks, thanks to Martin Hanzal double minor for high sticking.
The Canucks squandered seven power play opportunities, including the four-minute one to end the game, on the night.
Hanzal had eight penalty minutes on the night, with tripping and slashing minors coming prior to his late-game double minor.
Both the Coyotes and Canucks managed 11 shots on goal in the 1st period, with Vermette scoring the period's lone goal at 12:51.
Smith managed 29 saves in the shutout.
