Coyotes shut down Penguins

  • Associated Press February 1, 2014

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Zbynek Michalek scored against his former team, his first goal in 83 games, and the Phoenix Coyotes became the first Pacific Division team to beat the Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh Penguins in regulation this season with a 3-1 victory on Saturday night.

Mike Ribeiro had a goal and an assist for Phoenix. Radim Vrbata scored the third goal for the Coyotes, who were coming off perhaps their worst loss of the season, 3-2 at home to the East’s worst team, the Buffalo Sabres, on Thursday night.

Evgeni Malkin scored for the Penguins, who entered 8-0-1 against Pacific Division foes.

Michalek’s previous goal was scored on March 5, 2012, for Pittsburgh against Phoenix.
