Doan's late heroics lifts Coyotes past Sharks
Shane Doan vowed the Phoenix Coyotes' effort would improve, then he made sure it did.
Doan scored with 26.9 seconds remaining and the Coyotes edged the San Jose Sharks 4-3 Tuesday night.
Doan, who assisted on Phoenix's previous three goals, scored on the backhand as he was being tackled from behind by defenseman Rob Blake. He pulled the puck across the crease and bounced a shot off Brian Boucher's right pad before falling to the ice.
