GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Chad Johnson earned his first NHL shutout in his Phoenix debut and the Coyotes beat the Nashville Predators 4-0 on Monday night.

Johnson, called up from Portland of the AHL last week after Mike Smith was hurt, had 22 saves in a game dominated defensively by a Coyotes team that entered the night allowing an NHL-high 20 goals in five games.

Keith Yandle had a power-play goal and two assists and Nick Johnson a goal and one assist. Antoine Vermette and Laurie Korpikoski also scored in the Coyotes' second win in six games.

The Predators were shut out for the second time in three games and have scored just 10 times in six games this season.

It was the first meeting of the season of teams that met in last season's Western Conference semifinals, a series won by Phoenix 4-1.
