GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Craig Anderson made 23 saves and Radim Vrbata and Martin Lapointe scored 1:24 apart in the second period to help the Blackhawks beat Phoenix 3-1.

After the Coyotes took a 1-0 lead on Geoff Sanderson's goal midway through the first period, the Blackhawks scored the final three goals.

Vrbata drove a shot from the right point that Phoenix defenseman Keith Ballard deflected behind Curtis Joseph at 21 seconds of the second period.

Phoenix defenseman Sean O'Donnell then gave away the puck to set by Lapointe's goal at 1:45. Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook intercepted O'Donnell's pass at the right faceoff circle and fired a perfect pass to Lapointe at the left of the goal crease.

The Blackhawks added an insurance goal when Mark Bell fired a shot from the right point that found its way behind Joseph at 10:55 of the third period.

"We were stingy and more effective defensively," Lapointe said. "Guys were scared to get caught in the zone, and that was good. We wanted to get the puck out."

Phoenix is 2-3-1 on its 10-game homestand.

"It's disappointing," Coyotes captain Shane Doan said. "You have a chance at home to make a stand and we haven't done that. We have had six games at home and have not taken care of business. When you do that, it's really frustrating."

Notes: Chicago is in the middle of a six-game trip. The Blackhawks opened the trip with a shootout loss in St. Louis and were shut out in Nashville. ... Sanderson's goal was his 16th of the season.
