Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Mikael Backlund scored in a fourth straight game and Joni Ortio made 27 saves as the Calgary Flames beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-1 on Thursday night. Sean Monahan assisted on a third-period goal and added an empty-netter with 1:25 left for the Flames, who have opened a five-game road swing with consecutive wins. Mikkel Boedker extended his goal-scoring streak to a career-high four games, but the Coyotes suffered their third straight loss and finished their homestand at 2-4-0. Its not worth talking about one person when youre losing or when youre winning. Were a team, Boedker said. Mike Smith made 21 stops in defeat. David Jones jumped on a rebound in the slot and fired it past Smith to break a 1-1 tie at 4:51 of the third. Mark Giordano gathered a feed from Monahan and scored on a long snap shot with 4:02 remaining. We played a great (third) period. Im proud of the boys, said Calgary coach Bob Hartley. Backlund opened the scoring 63 seconds into the second period. He took a pass from Johnny Gaudreau and led a rush down the right wing. As he skated toward the top of the faceoff circle, he fired a wrister that deflected in off Arizona defenseman Keith Yandles skate. Boedker tied it at the 12:36 mark, collecting a loose puck in the Calgary zone and skating around with it for a few seconds before beating Ortio on a shot from the right circle.

The former England international footballer watched last weeks Premier League matches in Bournemouth and the eight remaining players return to action in Birmingham on Thursday night, live on Sky Sports.Gascoigne was the latest famous face to spend an evening at the darts and Sky Sports expert Studd looks back at when a prince, a TV comedian, and a Dutch football ace paid a visit to the arrows... From spit and saw dust to champagne and star dust was how Dave Lanning, the former Sky Sports commentator, described the influence of our late, great colleague Sid Waddell. That is reflected in the variety of celebrities from all over the planet that watch darts.Prince Harry is a great supporter of darts and has twice visited the World Championship at Ally Pally. I think everyone was absolutely staggered when he first turned up in 2011. A real live Prince wanted to watch darts, it just felt remarkable. Hes a pretty down-to-earth character and everyone really enjoyed him being there. Prince Harry has made two trips to the World Darts Championship I think Adrian Lewis got pretty carried away when Prince Harry went backstage to congratulate him on his semi-final win and ended up planting a kiss on his forehead. It was all taken in good humour and I think Harry enjoyed it.Zara Phillips has also been to watch the darts on a number of occasions with husband Mike Tindall. Its now the sport of princes and princesses. I think Adrian Lewis got pretty carried away when Prince Harry went to congratulate him and ended up planting a kiss on his forehead. Rod Studd Stephen Fry is another example of how you can find all walks of life at the darts.dddddddddddd. Hes one of the most intelligent men in the country, a Cambridge University graduate, and loves the sport.We invited him to the Premier League finals in 2010 when the lights famously went out, forcing the matches to be postponed until the following evening. Fry cancelled an evening with Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, to watch the Premier League and treat us to his commentary. Stephen Fry was a guest commentator at the 2010 Premier League final Pop stars are also pretty keen on the darts. Last year we had some bloke from One Direction and Justin Hawkins, the lead singer from The Darkness, made the trip when he was trying to get the Christmas No 1.Darts had struggled for many years to get respect as a sport, but now a procession of professional sports people come to watch and are in awe of the skill level and competitiveness at the top level. One Directions Niall Horan was spotted at Alexandra Palace International footballers such as Robin van Persie, Tony Kroos, a World Cup winner with Germany, and Rafael van der Vaart, who obviously did not know much about darts as he asked for a photo with Wayne Mardle, have also attended.But its not just football as champion jockey AP McCoy, snooker stars such as Ronnie OSullivan and Carl Froch, the former boxing world champion, all also come to watch. It just shows the respect that the greatest in their profession have for the darts guys. Watch all of the Premier League Darts matches this Thursday night, from 7pm on Sky Sports 1.
