Chipchura Scores Twice to Lead Phoenix Coyotes over Vancouver Canucks 4-2


Chipchura leads Coyotes over Canucks 4-2

--

VANCOUVER - Minus their top two threats, the Phoenix Coyotes have had to look elsewhere for offence.

Kyle Chipchura filled that role on Tuesday night.

The gritty fourth liner scored a pretty goal in the first period and added an empty netter to clinch the victory late in regulation as Phoenix defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-2.

"We got a couple big goals out of Chipchura," Phoenix head coach Dave Tippett said. "He's playing with a lot of confidence. We use him in a lot of situations.

"He's a gritty guy but he's got pretty decent hands."

Taken 18th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2004 draft, Chipchura was more humble in his assessment of his line's offensive output.

"We're a line that's going to do it off of hard work, cycling game, getting pucks to the net," said Chipchura, who had three goals on Phoenix's three-game Western Canadian road trip. "It's not going to be the prettiest all the time but we'll take it when we can get them."

The Coyotes finished the road trip 1-1-1 without leading scorer Radim Vrbata and top goal scorer Martin Hanzal.

"With the people we have out we had to come in here and manufacture a win and be opportunistic on our chances," said Tippett.

Along with Chipchura, Paul Bissonnette picked up an assist on the opening goal to give him a three-game point streak for the first time in his career.

"Chipper's been unbelievable of late," said Phoenix forward Mikkel Boedker. "When you're hot, you're hot I guess. He's been playing real well for us. (Bissonnette) has been getting some greasy assists and playing well too.

"We need that fourth line. We're not a team that can rely on one or two guys."

Boedker and Antoine Vermette and each added a goal and an assist for Phoenix (9-7-3), which was coming off back-to-back losses to Edmonton and Calgary over the weekend, including a third-period collapse against the Flames.

"In previous games when we took the lead we would kind of sat back a bit," Boedker said. "Where we have more success is when we press the opponent down in their end."

Instead of sitting on a 2-1 lead in the third, the visitors kept forechecking, leading to Vermette's eventual winner.

"We wanted to play on our toes," Tippett said. "Everybody knows what happened last game. We played a real good third period in Calgary until the last couple minutes so we wanted to carry it through tonight and we were able to do that."

Jason Garrison and Henrik Sedin replied for Vancouver (10-5-4), which got 18 saves from Cory Schneider.

The Canucks were coming off a 2-1-1 road trip but have now dropped three straight at home. They have also now lost two in a row after earning at least a point in 10 of the previous 11 games.

Chipchura opened the scoring at 14:22 of the first. …
