Mike Smith had 44 saves in his second straight shutout and Ray Whitney passed 1,000 career points with a goal and assist in the Phoenix Coyotes' 4-0 rout of the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night. Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Antoine Vermette and Radim Vrbata also scored for the Coyotes, who are tied with Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles in points with 91, but the Kings own the tiebreaker. Three of Phoenix's goals came on power plays, all in the second period, for a team that ranks last in the NHL in that category. Whitney's assist on Vrbata's goal made him the 79th player in NHL history to reach 1,000 points. Forty seconds later, Whitney scored his 24th goal of the season.
