Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Mike Smith returned from a six-game absence and posted 24 saves to notch his fifth shutout of the season, as the Phoenix Coyotes blanked the Colorado Avalanche, 4-0, on Saturday at Jobing.com Arena.

Martin Hanzal and Shane Doan each registered a goal and an assist, while Boyd Gordon and Mikkel Boedker also lit the lamp for the Coyotes, who have won three straight to move within two points of St. Louis for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Semyon Varlamov allowed all four goals on 28 shots for the Avalanche, who have lost 14 straight on the road and sit last in the NHL with 29 points.
