Noah Hanifin and Mark Jankowski each scored twice, former Coyotes goalie Mike Smith just missed his 38th career shutout and the Calgary Flames routed Arizona 6-1 on Sunday.
Smith, making his first start in five games, made 28 saves in his first win since Nov. 1.
Calgary led 6-0 before Clayton Keller scored for Arizona with 6:16 remaining.
Three of the Flames’ goals were short-handed. The Coyotes have allowed five shorted-handed goals in their last two games.
Sean Monahan and T.J. Brodie also scored for Calgary. The Flames rebounded from a loss at Las Vegas on Friday night and have won four of five. Arizona has lost four in a row, counting in overtime loss, and has been outscored 11-2 in the two games since goalie Antti Raanta returned after missing eight games with a lower-body injury.
Calgary coach Bill Peters wasn’t around to watch about 10 minutes of the game after he was hit in the left jaw with a puck while standing in his customary spot in the bench area early in the second period. He needed eight stitches and returned late in the period.
