Stoll scores twice, Oilers shut out Coyotes in first game since Cup Finals

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Jarret Stoll scored two goals and rookie Devan Dubynk made 27 saves in the Edmonton Oilers' 5-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday in the exhibition opener for both teams.

The teams played in front of a capacity crowd of 15,015 at MTS Centre, with many of the fans wearing Winnipeg Jets jerseys. It was the fourth NHL exhibition game in Winnipeg since the Jets left in 1996 to become the Coyotes.

Stoll beat goalie David LeNeveu on a two-man advantage late in the first period and made it 2-0 against Phillippe Sauve in the second. Alexei Mikhnov scored late in the second and Stephane Goulet and Brad Winchester added third-period goals.

Phoenix goalie Curtis Joseph didn't make the trip and Edmonton starter Dwayne Roloson remained in Alberta. Coyotes center Jeremy Roenick, who returned to the team in the offseason, didn't play because of a minor groin injury.

Edmonton sat forwards Ryan Smyth, Ales Hemsky and Fernando Pisani.
