GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Arizona Coyotes found redemption against Winnipeg after an embarrassing loss at home.Mikkel Boedker had two goals and an assist, Shane Doan added a goal and two assists, and the Coyotes beat the Jets 4-1 on Thursday night.The Coyotes, routed by St. Louis 6-0 on Tuesday, scored their first three goals on power plays, two in the games first 3:18.Oliver Ekman-Larsson had Arizonas other goal. Mathieu Perreault scored for Winnipeg.The challenge was to be better and have a little bit of pride, Doan said. It was embarrassing last game at home.Mike Smith, in goal for the game against the Blues, made 34 saves in one of his best performances of what has been a difficult season. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 26 shots for the Jets.That game just seemed to have more flow to it than other ones Ive been in this year, Smith said. It was an easier game to stay in, and obviously when you have the lead it takes some pressure off.The three power-play goals — in five attempts — matched the Coyotes season high. The Jets were 0-for-7 on power plays against an Arizona team that entered the game last in the NHL in penalty kills.Tonight we lost the special teams battle, Perreault said.Arizonas penalty kills included a four-minute, high-sticking penalty against Doan in the third period.The Coyotes have lost two of their last four, both by 6-0 scores, and followed both with victories.We were just way more competitive tonight, Arizona coach Dave Tippett said. We need to do that night in and night out.The Jets lost on the road in regulation for the first time in nine games. The last time they failed to get a point in a road game was Nov. 15 at Nashville.Boedkers second goal, after Winnipeg had cut the lead to 3-1 early in the third period, was a near coast-to-coast drive, speeding past the defence and pushing the puck into the net just inside the left post.Yeah, those feel good, he said. It doesnt happen every night, but when it does it feels good.Smith called it a tremendous goal at the perfect time of the game.Theyd just scored, and they were kind of making a push, he said. We didnt want to say, Oh, here we go again. We wanted to step on the gas and push back.Just 23 seconds into the game, Winnipegs Bryan Little drew a two-minute penalty for tripping. That opened the way for Boedker to score from in front on a pass from Antoine Vermette just 1:10 in.Two minutes later, Ben Chariot was called for hooking. Just 9 seconds after that, Ekman-Larssons wrister sailed over the glove of Pavelec, giving Arizona a 2-0 lead 3:18 into the game.The Coyotes survived a rash of penalties late in the first period.Winnipeg twice had a 5-on-3 advantage, for a combined 1:44, but the Jets couldnt score. Winnipeg is 0-for-10 on 5-on-3 situations this season.Arizona got its third power-play goal a few seconds after a 5-on-3 advantage ended. Doan got the rebound of Michael Stones shot and poked it past Pavelec to make it 3-0 with 4:25 to play in the second period.Little redirected the puck through his legs to Perrault, who ruined Smiths shutout bid and briefly cut it to 3-1.Winnipeg had a goal waived off.Well, it was a good goal but that has nothing to do with it, Jets coach Paul Maurice said. Im not going to sit here and say its 2-1 that changes the game. Were responsible for our play. We werent good enough to win a hockey game tonight.NOTES: Coyotes are 5-2 after being shut out. ...

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Kevin Durant insisted the Thunder facing elimination was all the motivation he needed. Thanks to the NBAs best scorer, the Thunder remain alive and can finish off the Memphis Grizzlies back in Oklahoma City. Durant scored 36 points to break out of a slump, and the Thunder routed the Grizzlies 104-84 on Thursday night to force a deciding seventh game in the first-round Western Conference series. His performance came on a day where the hometown newspaper questioned his struggles with a headline calling him "Mr. Unreliable." "We needed to win this game," Durant said. "Thats more motivation than anything, so our team responded. Weve got to do an even better job in Game 7." Russell Westbrook added 25 points for the Thunder, who havent been eliminated in the first round of the playoffs since 2010. They took control early with Durant scoring 14 points in the first quarter, led by 15 at halftime and never let Memphis get that close again in the second half in the first game in the series that didnt go to overtime since the opener. "You dont get to his level as an NBA player and a great player as he is to have other people motivate you," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "Hes self-motivated. Hes a tremendous kid and does everything for his team, for our organization. Were proud of him because he gives everything he has. That was the only focus for tonights game." Durant also had 10 rebounds and made 14 of 15 free throws. Reggie Jackson had 16 points off the bench for the Thunder, who will host Game 7 on Saturday night. Grizzlies guard Tony Allen said the Thunder simply wanted the game more and called the loss embarrassing in front of a sellout crowd. "Now, weve shot ourselves in the foot, and we have to go to a hostile environment now and pretty much show where our heart is at," Allen said. Marc Gasol had 17 points and Zach Randolph 16 for Memphis. Guard Mike Conley strained his right hamstring, briefly returned and left for good with 8:48 left. Conley went down in the third quarter near midcourt dribbling when Kendrick Perkins reached in for a steal. The Memphis guard returned briefly, but Conley was limping noticeably. With the Thunder in control, Conley went to the locker room again and didnt return. Nick& Calathes currently is suspended for violating the NBAs anti-drug policy, leaving Memphis with only Beno Udrih at point guard.dddddddddddd Memphis coach Dave Joerger said Udrih will play a lot of minutes if Conley cant. Conley said he will be re-evaluated Friday and receive as much treatment as possible before tipoff Saturday. "I plan on playing," Conley said. Durant had to answer questions after the shootaround Thursday about that headline in The Oklahoman newspaper. Durant said he had no problem with the headline and that he just needed to hit shots and be more aggressive. Smiling just before tipoff, Durant did just that. The man who led the NBA scoring 32 points a game during the regular season opened by hitting five of his first seven and finished 11 of 23 from the floor. He continued to struggle outside the arc where he missed all six of his attempts. The Grizzlies had a chance to advance to their third semifinal in four years on their own floor. Yet they couldnt shoot well or match the Thunders intensity with a sloppy performance in front of a sellout crowd that tried to energize the Grizzlies. Oklahoma City outrebounded Memphis 47-36 and easily outshot them 49.3 per cent (37 of 75) to 37.3 per cent (31 of 83). "We knew sooner or later our shots would fall," Brooks said. Brooks also benched Thabo Sefolosha and started Caron Butler. "This is why you play the game to prove doubters wrong, and adversity builds character," Butler said. "This team has a strong character and a will." Memphis last led 6-4. A team that thrives off defence, the Grizzlies couldnt knock down shots even when they managed to get consecutive stops. The Grizzlies got to 42-37 with 3:08 left on a steal and fast-break layup by Conley. The Thunder finished the half with a 14-4 run for a 56-41 lead. The Grizzlies missed their first six shots to open the third quarter, finishing any hopes of a comeback. James Johnson scored 15 points off the bench for Memphis, and Allen added 13. Notes: This will be the second Game 7 between the teams in four years. Oklahoma City beat Memphis in seven in the 2011 conference semifinals. ... The Grizzlies are 4-1 with a chance to close out a series. ... Steven Adams blocked a career-high five shots off the bench for the Thunder.
