Just 1 second after the Flames killed off a hooking penalty to Jay Bouwmeester, Doan tipped in a point shot by Oliver Ekman-Larsson to tie the game 2-2. Keith Yandle intercepted a clearing attempt by Blake Comeau to get the play started.
Whitney took advantage of a brutal turnover by Calgary defenseman Scott Hannan and scored on a breakaway midway in the third period to give the Coyotes a 3-2 lead. After Hannan tripped and lost control of the puck at his blue line, Whitney broke in alone on Kiprusoff and made a quick move before depositing a forehand shot into the net.
With Radim Vrbata in the penalty box for tripping, Jokinen backhanded a rebound past Smith with 1:46 left in regulation.
After a scoreless overtime, Whitney snapped a shot over Kiprusoff's right pad for the winning goal.
NOTES: The Coyotes acquired Vermette from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday in exchange for goalie Curtis McElhinney and a pair of draft picks. ... Flames forward Krys Kolanos, who left the game with a lower-body injury in the second period, was originally drafted by the Coyotes in the first round (19th overall) in 2000 in his hometown of Calgary. Kolanos, who has one assist in 10 games with the Flames, scored 17 goals and added 18 assists in 109 games with the Coyotes from 2001-06. ... After the loss, the Flames are now 14-5-9 in one-goal games this season.
