GLENDALE, Ariz. - Mike Smith stopped 28 shots for his first shutout of the season, Antoine Vermette had a power-play goal in the first period, and the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Vancouver Canucks 1-0 on Thursday night.

In a game full of penalties and killed power plays, the Coyotes got stellar goaltending and just enough offence while the Canucks continued to struggle on the offence. Phoenix also got a break on a reviewed goal in the third period.

Vancouver lost for the eighth time in nine games as an apparent goal from captain Henrik Sedin near the midpoint of the third was waved off after a replay review.
