Kuemper gets 1st shutout of season, Coyotes beat Avs 3-0

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona goaltender Darcy Kuemper should receive extra credit for his first shutout of the season.

Seven of Kuemper’s 33 saves in a 3-0 victory over Colorado on Saturday came when the Coyotes were short-handed. Included was a stretch early in the second period when the Coyotes had a man in the penalty box for six minutes of a 9:56 stretch.

”That was a tough one for us,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said. ”That’s good power play and ‘Kuemps’ was there.

”He was solid. Even some of their shots, they might look easy, but they are hard saves because he has to move from one side to the other. He looked really big in the net tonight.”
