Bryzgalov, Coyotes crush Canucks

GLENDALE, Arizona (AP) -- Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 34 shots, and

Shane Doan scored his 27th goal in the Phoenix Coyotes' 5-1 win

over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

Daniel Winnik, Ed Jovanovski, Viktor Tikhonov and Matthew

Lombardi added goals in Phoenix's highest-scoring game since

beating Los Angeles, 6-3, on February 21. The four-goal margin

was the largest for Phoenix this season.

Bryzgalov lost the shutout when Alex Burrows slammed in a puck

that rebounded off the back boards with 1:45 left in the game.

The five goals allowed was the most Vancouver surrendered since

a 5-3 loss January 28 at home against Nashville. The Canucks

lost in regulation for the second time in their last 11 games.
