Nick Schmaltz knew the Arizona Coyotes' power play was going to finally click.
Schmaltz and linemate Christian Dvorak each scored with the man advantage just over two minutes apart as the Coyotes beat the Jets 4-2 for a rare victory in Winnipeg. The Coyotes had lost 10 straight games in Winnipeg since the Jets franchise moved from Atlanta in 2011.
Dvorak also scored at even strength.
"I don't think it was anything that changed," Schmaltz said of the power play that was 0-for-9 heading into the game. "We were going in the right direction."
Schmaltz, who has scored in three straight games, added two assists for Arizona. Conor Garland also scored.
Darcy Kuemper, a former Wild goalie, made 38 saves for the Coyotes. He has allowed two goals or fewer in 11 straight games, tying the franchise record set by Nikolai Khabibulin.
Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele had a goal and an assist and extended his point streak to five games with his fourth goal of the season.
Tampa Bay 3, Montreal 1: Andrei Vasilevskiy made 33 saves to help the Lightning beat the host Canadiens in the fifth game of their six-game road trip. The 25-year-old Vasilevskiy improved to 8-1-2 in his career against Montreal.
Calgary 3, Philadelphia 1: Playing in his 800th NHL game, Michael Frolik scored the 154th goal of his 13-season career as the host Flames beat the Flyers. It was his fifth goal as a Flames player. The 31-year-old Czech also has played for Florida, Chicago and Winnipeg.
Vancouver 5, Detroit 1: Alexander Edler's power-play goal at 1:13 of the second period gave the Canucks a 2-1 lead and they pulled away with two more goals in the period. J.T. Miller had two goals and Brock Boeser three assists for Vancouver.
Nashville 5, Vegas 2: The Golden Knights' Pekka Rinne made 33 saves against one of the NHL's most potent offenses and remained unbeaten this season, improving to 4-0-0.
Carolina 2, Los Angeles 0: The Hurricanes improved to 6-1 on a 31-save shutout by Petr Mrazek in the opener of a four-game road trip. It's the best start in team history.
