SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — Mike Smith made 33 saves through overtime and then turned aside two more shots in the shootout to carry the Phoenix Coyotes to a 1-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

The only offense in the entire game was provided by Phoenix’s Mikkel Boedker and Radium Vrbata, who both netted shootout goals against Sharks goalie Antii Niemi.

Smith, who recorded his fourth shutout of the season, made several acrobatic saves, including one in the shootout. Smith has 21 career NHL shutouts.

Niemi was nearly as flawless, stopping 21 shots before the shootout to earn his first shutout of the season and 20th in the NHL.

The Sharks entered the game with one power-play goal in their previous 21 opportunities, and went 0-for-4. Phoenix came with four goals in 23 chances before an 0-for-3 performance.
