TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Radim Vrbata scored the lone shootout goal to lead the Phoenix Coyotes past the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Monday night.

Vrbata beat Ben Bishop with a backhand. Mike Smith stopped all three Lightning shootout shots.

Ondrej Palat got the Lightning even at 3-all on his second goal of the game, coming from the low slot with the Tampa Bay net empty and 37.2 seconds left in regulation. Palat also had an assist.

Brandon McMillan, Martin Erat and Mikkel Boedker scored for the Coyotes, who trailed eighth-place Dallas by one point in the Western Conference.

Tampa Bay, 1-4-2 since the Olympic break ended, also got a goal from Tyler Johnson.
