Coyotes 4, Flames 2: Mike Ribeiro scored his second goal of the game at 5:47 of the third period to snap a tie and help host Phoenix extend its point streak to seven games.

Radim Vrbata and Rob Klinkhammer also tallied while defenseman Keith Yandle notched two assists for the Coyotes, who have gone 5-0-2 after losing two of their first three games. Mike Smith made 22 saves in his first start since becoming the 11th goaltender in NHL history to be credited with a goal.

Lee Stempniak and Joe Colborne scored while Joey MacDonald turned aside 29 shots for the Flames, who fell to 1-3-0 on their five-game road trip.

After extending his point streak to seven games in the second period, Ribeiro completed his second straight two-goal performance in the third. Yandle made a pass through traffic from the left faceoff circle to Ribeiro, who fired the puck into the net from below the right circle for a 3-2 lead.

Vrbata opened the scoring at 8:41 of the first period, beating MacDonald from the right circle during a power play for his 200th career goal. Ribeiro scored on a deflection midway through the second to double the lead, but Stempniak buried a rebound with 1:34 left in the session and Colborne converted a breakaway chance three minutes into the third to forge a 2-2 tie.
