Radim Vrbata and Ray Whitney scored goals to lift the Phoenix Coyotes to a 2-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.
   The Coyotes won for just the second time in six games.
   Mike Smith stopped 19 shots before leaving with 16:31 left in the third period because of a non-contact injury. Jason LaBarbera relieved Smith and made six saves, including one on a penalty shot.
   Brian Campbell scored for the Panthers, and Jose Theodore made 20 saves. It was the first loss in regulation for the Panthers in nine home games. Florida's last 13 home games have been decided by one goal.
   Florida was awarded a penalty shot with 24.5 seconds left in the game because several Coyotes players displaced the net. Stephen Weiss' shot was blocked by LaBarbera and stopped at the goal line.
