Posted: Tuesday, December 10, 2002

PHOENIX -- Branko Radivojevic scored midway through the third period -- his third goal in five games -- as the Phoenix Coyotes overcame 2-0 and 3-2 deficits to tie the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-3 Monday night.

Marc Denis made 20 of his 38 saves in the third period and overtime for Columbus, outshot 41-22.

The game was played in front of 9,639, the smallest home crowd for the Coyotes since the franchise moved from Winnipeg in 1996. Phoenix extended its home winless streak to nine games, and the Coyotes have won just once in their last 11 overall.

Flames 2, Canucks 1

The Flames, playing without the injured Jarome Iginla for the first time in two years, remained unbeaten (2-0-1) since Al MacNeil took over for fired coach Greg Gilbert on an interim basis.

Calgary had lost 11 of 12 games before the coaching switch.

Artem Chubarov scored for the Canucks, who have lost two straight games and three of four since a 10-game winning streak was snapped last week.

Vancouver outshot the Flames 30-15, but couldn't t beat Turek, who has given up one goal in all three games since the coaching change.
