GLENDALE, Ariz., Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Shane Doan and Boyd Gordon each netted a pair of goals Monday, powering the Phoenix Coyotes' 6-1 rout of Colorado.

Mike Smith turned aside 38-of-39 shots, including all 14 he saw in the second period, to earn the win.

Chuck Kobasew found the net and Semyon Varlamov made 27 saves for the Avalanche, who lost for the fourth time in five games.
