NHL Roundup: Former Pirate Johnson gets shutout for Coyotes

The Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Chad Johnson earned his first NHL shutout in his Phoenix debut and the Coyotes beat the Nashville Predators 4-0 on Monday night.

Johnson, called up from the Portland Pirates last week after Mike Smith was hurt, had 22 saves in a game dominated defensively by a Coyotes team that entered the night allowing an NHL-high 20 goals in five games.

Keith Yandle had a power-play goal and two assists and Nick Johnson a goal and one assist. Antoine Vermette and Laurie Korpikoski also scored in the Coyotes' second win in six games.

The Predators were shut out for the second time in three games and have scored just 10 times in six games this season.

 

BLUE JACKETS 2, STARS 1: Vinny Prospal scored from a hard angle at 1:22 of the third and Sergei Bobrovsky had 24 saves to lead Columbus over visiting Dallas to end a four-game losing streak.

NOTES

STARS: Dallas placed forward Derek Roy on injured reserve with a groin injury.

 

CANADIENS: Defenseman P.K. Subban will be rejoining Montreal, signing a two-year contract to end his holdout.
