GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Martin Straka had two goals and an assist and linemate Jaromir Jagr added a goal and three assists, and the New York Rangers beat the Phoenix Coyotes 7-3 on Saturday night.

Aaron Ward also had a goal and two assists for the Rangers, who improved to 3-1 on the road as they opened a four-game West Coast trip. Brendan Shanahan scored his team-leading ninth goal for New York.

Rookies Matt Jones and Patrick Fischer scored their first NHL goals for Phoenix, which has lost five of its last six games. Fischer is a 31-year-old centre who played 13 years in his native Switzerland.

Jones' goal came at 2:18 of the first period and gave the Coyotes a 1-0 lead. But that only woke up the Rangers, who dominated the rest of the way.

New York tied it 1-1 on Straka's fifth goal of the season at 10:06. Michael Nylander made a crisp cross-ice pass to Straka, who was all alone on the left post and flipped the puck past goaltender David LeNeveu.

The Rangers put the game away with four goals in a 10:33 span of the second period. They led 2-0 when Matt Cullen scored at 1:13 of the second period.

Then Jagr scored a trademark goal, swatting in a rebound of Ward's shot at 4:23.

I think Wayne is on the hot seat here. I don't care if your the best hockey player who ever played,if you have a team with all that talent and their not performing changes need to be made. I mean Wayne's is the highest paid coach in the NHL and your team is last in the Western Convrence he needs to go! What do you think?:dunno:
