PHOENIX, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- A third-period goal by Radim Vrbata proved to be the game-winner in the Phoenix Coyotes' 3-2 victory over the visiting Dallas Stars Saturday.

Vrbata's goal at 3:35 in the third period gave Phoenix a 3-1 lead that held up after Matt Niskanen scored the Stars' second and final goal of the game on a power play at 7:02.

Robert Lang and Davis Schlemko also scored for the Coyotes, who snapped a two-game losing streak.

Ilya Bryzgalov finished with 26 saves for Phoenix.
