Coyotes have won 7 straight games with 4-3 shootout win over Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes have recorded a 3-2 shootout win against the Los Angeles Kings in the final game of a three-game road trip.

Arizona Coyotes goalie Mike Smith stopped 29 shots for his 15th shutout and fourth of the season.

Los Angeles has not won in regulation in 12 games since Nov. 13.

The Coyotes will host the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

“The first half was tough, but I think we’ve gotten better since then,” Smith said.

“We’ve played a lot better.”

Smith was a minus-2 in his last four starts against the Kings and was replaced by rookie Michael Stone on Sunday.

The Coyotes (13-9-4, 36 points) improved to 6-0-2 on the road this season.

The Kings (13, 9-6-2, 35 points) lost for the third time in five games on Tuesday night when Los Angeles scored two goals in less than three minutes.

Los Vegas had a 5-2 advantage in shots in the first period.

Smith had a goal and two assists in eight games before the Kings fired him after three games on Dec. 11.

He scored his first goal on Jan. 8 against San Jose.

The Kings have not scored a goal in their last five games.

Kings captain Dustin Brown scored the lone goal for Los Angeles on Saturday, but the Coyotes had a 2-0 lead with 3:45 left in the third period.

The team tied the score at 3-3 with 6:20 left in regulation.

Los Angeles defenseman Mattias Ekholm stopped 19 of 24 shots for the Kings.

Ekholm, acquired in a trade with the Nashville Predators, is expected to miss at least three weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

Kings center Matt Greene, who missed three games with a concussion, returned from a three game absence.

He had six goals and 12 assists in 18 games for Nashville.

The Flyers have won four straight against Los Angeles and seven of the past 10.
