GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Mike Smith stopped 17 shots for his 20th career shutout and the Phoenix Coyotes blanked the Dallas Stars 2-0 on Saturday night at JOBing.com Arena. Nick Johnson and Mikkel Boedker scored for the Coyotes, who have points in their past four games (2-0-2) after starting the season with one win in five games. The game marked the return of Coyotes left wing Raffi Torres, who served a 21-game suspension following his flying hit to the head of Chicago's Marian Hossa in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs last April. Smith enjoyed considerable assistance from his defense, which held the Stars to just three shots on goal in the second period -- one in the first 17 minutes -- and blocked 15 shots. Nick Johnson broke a scoreless tie at 11:57 of the second period after a Dallas turnover in the Phoenix zone. Smith attempted the clear the puck down the ice but Jamie Oleksiak stopped the puck along the halfboards. Korpikoski came in, poked the puck loo...

On Saturday at Jobing.com Arena, Torres 2.0 made his 2013 NHL...

Phoenix Coyotes goalie Jason LaBarbera kept sharp during the NHL lockout by joining his teammates for informal workouts at the team's practice facility.
He didn't go overseas to play, as some goalies did, but tracking pucks and turning away shots every day gave him an edge over players who stayed at home.
Of course, once the lockout ended, it was a scramble, leaving LaBarbera...

The Phoenix Coyotes seem to be good for the Dallas Stars' psyche -- and their offense. The Stars look to continue their success against the Pacific Division rivals by sweeping this home-and-home set Saturday night in Phoenix.
Dallas (3-4-1) is among the worst offensive teams in the league with 17 goals, but eight have come in two meetings with Phoenix (2-4-2).
The Stars opened...
With the deadline for the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes to Greg Jamison passing yesterday without the team being purchased, so many fans are wondering when in the world this saga will end.

So... Greg Jamison missed his deadline to secure and/or announce his partners (his deep-pocketed partners) to purchase the Phoenix Coyotes from the National Hockey League. Along with that went the subsidies approved by the old City of Glendale government which would have given Jamison US$300-million to keep the team at City Center for the next 20 years...
GLENDALE, Ariz. The news that Greg Jamison would not make his deadline to purchase the Coyotes had barely settled over the Valley when another reminder of this lengthy ownership saga's impact slipped quietly into the press elevator on Saturday at Jobing.com Arena.
Ray Whitney's return to the Valley wasn't as poetic as it was supposed to be. Whitney, now with the Stars...
The performance of the Worcester Sharks recently inspired one of their close observers to tweet this:
@210Darryl: I think it's time for some changes for the #WorSharks...this team has way too much talent to be playing this poorly.
The Worcester Sharks only played two games last week, due in part to the AHL All Star break. The first game was Friday in Portland,...
