GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Mike Smith stopped 41 shots, Kyle Chipchura had a goal and an assist, and the Phoenix Coyotes rebounded from a lopsided loss to Los Angeles by beating the Kings 3-1 Tuesday night.

Smith had a miserable game in California last Thursday, when he was pulled after allowing four goals on 15 shots in the first period of the Kings' 7-4 win.

The Coyotes were sharp early defensively in the rematch and Smith was superb throughout, making numerous tough saves before Jarret Stoll beat him on a power play late in the third period.

Phoenix's Derek Morris and Shane Doan each scored in the final 2 minutes of the second to break open a tight game. Chipchura scored in the third and Andy Miele had two assists for his first NHL points to help Phoenix improve to 5-0-1 at home.
