Jets 5, Coyotes 1

Paul Maurice won his first game as Winnipeg's new coach as the Jets handled Phoenix in a big victory.

Hired on Sunday to replace fired Claude Noel as head coach of the floundering club, Winnipeg bounced back after having lost its previous five games.

The Jets (20-23-5) received goals from Olli Jokinen, Eric O'Dell, Blake Wheeler, Michael Frolik and Devin Setoguchi.

Setoguchi snapped his 18-game goalless skid with a third-period, power-play blast.

Phoenix (21-15-9) suffered its third consecutive loss.

Blue Jackets 3, Lightning 2

Defenseman Jack Johnson scored on a power-play point shot with 2:38 remaining, completing the Columbus Blue Jackets' rally for a win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ryan Johansen and Nathan Horton also scored for the Blue Jackets (21-20-4) who trailed 2-1 after the second period. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had 25 saves.

The win was the fourth straight for Columbus, a season high.

Alex Killorn and defenseman Victor Hedman had goals for the Lightning (27-15-4), while goaltender Anders Lindback made 25 saves.

Flames 2, Hurricanes 0

Mikael Backlund and rookie center Sean Monahan scored, and journeyman goalie Karri Ramo recorded his first career shutout as the Calgary Flames defeated the Carolina Hurricanes.

Ramo, traded from Montreal to Calgary in 2012, stopped 23 shots for his first NHL shutout in his 69th career game. He allowed just one goal in Calgary's 2-1 overtime win against Carolina on Dec. 12.

Carolina (19-18-9) was shut out for the second straight game after scoring a season-high six goals on Thursday against Toronto.

Meanwhile, Calgary (16-24-6) snapped a three-game losing streak.

Kings 1, Canucks 0

Dustin Brown scored the lone goal, and goaltender Jonathan Quick made 28 saves as the Los Angeles Kings beat the Vancouver Canucks.

Los Angeles (28-14-5) finished its five-game homestand with a 3-1-1 record, but it won for only the third time in 10 games. Quick's shutout was his second of the season and his second win in nine days against the Canucks.

Vancouver (24-14-9) got 19 saves from goaltender Eddie Lack. The Canucks were shut out for the first time this season.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches.
