Vermette gives Coyotes 2nd straight shootout win

Posted: Updated:

Antoine Vermette scored the deciding goal in the shootout for the second straight game and the Phoenix Coyotes won their fifth in a row, 3-2 over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

Vermette, who gave the Coyotes a victory at San Jose on Saturday, trickled the puck just past the line in the sixth round of this tiebreaker. Henrik Sedin lost control of the puck on his chance after Vermette's goal, and the Coyotes skated off with their third consecutive shootout win.

Radim Vrbata and Shane Doan scored in regulation for the Coyotes, 7-0-1 at home. Dan Hamhuis and Ryan Kesler had goals for Vancouver.
