GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes gave Dave Tippett his 450th career victory with just the kind of game the coach loves: gritty defensive play, strong goaltending and a bit of resiliency. Martin Hanzal had a goal and an assist, Mike Smith stopped 32 shots and the Coyotes held off the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Saturday night, handing Tippett another milestone win. "If youre going to win in this league, you need that (gritty play) every night," said Tippett, who also notched his 100th home victory in Phoenix. "It was nice to see us come through with a couple wins like that." Coming off a shutout victory in their last game, the Coyotes got off to a strong start with a pair of goals from their fourth line. Jeff Halpern had one and Jordan Szwarz had the other before playing the third period with stiches in his chin after being cut with a skate late in the second. Hanzal gave the Coyotes a two-goal cushion, but they had to hold on against New Jerseys big push to earn their first winning streak since beating Colorado and the New York Islanders on Dec. 10-12. "One of our key points coming in was getting off to a fast start and I felt like we did a good job doing that," Szwarz said. "We put a lot of pucks behind their defence and we were able to block some shots early to get off to a good start, then finish it off." New Jersey got off to a sluggish start at the end of a four-game road trip before rallying to make it close. Ryane Clowe had a goal and an assist and Jaromir Jagr scored his 696th career goal with 2:14 left in regulation. Jagr had another good chance with just over a minute left, but was stopped by Smith to end the Devils point streak at six games. "We got off to a slow start and that was disappointing, inexcusable really for not having played yesterday," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "We cant spot anyone two goals. Thats the bottom line." Phoenix got back to its defensive roots in its last game Thursday night, beating Vancouver 1-0 behind Smiths first shutout of the season and the return of defenceman Zbynek Michalek after he missed 13 games with a hip injury. Before that, the Coyotes had been erratic in their own end and lost 12 of their previous 16 games. New Jersey has had the opposite problem. The Devils have been solid behind the blue line lately, allowing six goals over the past five games. The problem has been scoring: New Jersey has scored 117 goals, 25th in the league. The Coyotes were sharp in the first period. Kyle Chipchura tracked down the puck behind the goal and sent a pass out front to Szwarz, who one-timed it past Martin Brodeurs stick side for Phoenixs first even-strength goal in more than 184 minutes. Halpern made it 2-0 by taking a feed from Moss and beating Brodeur to the glove side from the left circle for his second of the season. Phoenix dominated most of the opening period, but New Jersey got on the board when Clowe punched in a power-play rebound for his second of the season at 18:44. Hanzal put the Coyotes up 3-1 late in the second on a power play, tipping a shot by Keith Yandle then muscling it past Brodeur for his 14th of the season. Jagr cut the lead to one after New Jersey pulled Brodeur for an extra attacker, but Smith made some tough saves in the final minute. "If we would have had at least two lines going, it would have been a different story, but we only had one line doing anything," Jagr said. NOTES: The Coyotes have scored a power-play goal in seven straight games. ... New Jersey had killed off 16 of 17 penalties before Hanzals goal with the man advantage. ... The Coyotes and Devils had not played since Oct. 27, 2011, a 5-3 win by the Coyotes in Glendale. ... The Devils have lost four straight in Arizona, dating to 2003. Tiger Williams Jersey .

Yormark said he has accepted a job as president and chief of branding and strategy for Roc Nation, Jay Zs sports agency. The Panthers promoted Rory Babich into the jobs that Yormark had held with the organization, and announced that general manager Dale Tallon was having his responsibilities expanded to also include business operations. "While we are sorry to see Michael leave, he has received an offer for a tremendous opportunity and we are fortunate that we will be able to continue working with him in his new role," said Panthers owner Vincent Viola, who bought the team in September. "Rory has been working with us throughout our acquisition of the team and has been partnering with Michael on the business side and Dale on the hockey side since he joined us." Babich and Tallon also will be alternate governors for the team. "Dale and I, together, will be partnering on all aspects of our business," Babich said. Yormark joined Sunrise Sports and Entertainment as its Chief Operating Officer in September 2003, was promoted to president in August 2007 and then to president and CEO of the team and SSE lastt September.dddddddddddd Yormark said he still believes the Panthers, under Violas leadership, will get to the level the franchise has sought to reach for years. The Panthers have reached the playoffs only once since 2000, and are well out of post-season contention this year. "Roc Nation represents a wonderful new adventure for my family and me, and I am thrilled to join an exciting, innovative organization," Yormark said in a statement released Monday afternoon. "Roc Nation is poised to grow in to one of the most influential companies in the industry and I am looking forward to taking on this new challenge." Babich grew up in the New York area, the son of a sports writer, and said hes loved hockey since childhood. He joined the Panthers after Viola bought the team, and said his role as CEO will simply continue Violas vision to build a winner in South Florida. "Its an exciting time for us," Tallon said. "Rory and I have been together since December. Weve developed a close relationship in a short period of time. ... Were excited about what were going to do, how were going to do this and were going to work together to bring a Stanley Cup to the Panthers and their fans." Roc Nation was founded in 2008, and represents major sports stars as Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant, Victor Cruz and others.
