DALLAS, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Mikael Tellqvist recorded his first shutout this season Friday as the Phoenix Coyotes surprised the listless Dallas Stars 5-0.
Shane Doan had a goal and two assists, with his second goal this season giving Phoenix a 3-0 lead at the 3:34 mark of the second period. Phoenix also got one goal from Niko Kapanen, Daniel Carcillo, Martin Handal and Radim Vrbata (short-handed in the third).
Tellqvist stopped all 35 shots he faced as the much-improved Coyotes won their second game in a row and third in four.
Earlier, they also beat reigning Stanley Cup champion Anaheim and Nashville in road games.
The Stars lost their third straight game for the first time this season. They had not dropped three in a row since a four-game skid March 1-8 last season.
On the power play, Phoenix was 0-for-1, while the Stars went 0-for-2.
