GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Shane Doan returned to the Phoenix lineup and scored two goals to help the Coyotes beat the Los Angeles Kings 6-4 on Saturday night.

The Coyotes captain, out for three games with a back injury, scored the first and fourth goals of Phoenix's fourth victory in 14 games this season.

The scoring barrage led to the benching of both starting goalies, Phoenix's Curtis Joseph early in the first period and the Kings' Mathieu Garon early in the second.

Joseph's replacement, David LeNeveu, had 38 saves as the Kings outshot Phoenix 43-24.

The Coyotes, who entered averaging just over two goals per game, scored five straight goals to erase a 3-1 deficit and go up 6-3 in the second period.

Ed Jovanovski had a goal, assist and one spirited fight for the Coyotes.

Phoenix coach Wayne Gretzky pulled Joseph after the Kings scored twice in the first seven minutes, the first on a power-play goal by Anze Kopitar and second by Tom Kostopoulos that put the Kings up 2-1.
