GLENDALE, Ariz. — Sam Bennett scored twice, Sean Monahan had a goal and two assists and the Calgary Flames avoid a season sweep by the Arizona Coyotes with a 5-2 win Monday night.

T.J. Brodie and Joe Colborne also scored for Calgary, and Micheal Ferland had two assists. The Flames went 2 for 3 on the power play while stopping a three-game losing streak.

Calgary had lost all four previous meetings this season to Arizona.

Anthony Duclair scored twice for the Coyotes, who had won three in a row. Louis Domingue stopped 16 shots.

Both of Duclair’s goals came on power plays in the second period, giving him 19 on the season. He is tied with Trevor Letowski in 1999-2000 for second on the single-season scoring list for a Coyotes rookie.

Duclair’s second goal gave the Coyotes a 2-1 lead. He collected a deflection off Martin Hanzal after Alex Tanguay sent a pass into the crease and put in the rebound.

The Coyotes played without captain Shane Doan, who missed the game while undergoing concussion protocol.

Bennett scored Calgary’s first goal less than two minutes into the game. Ferland stole the puck from Arizona’s Nicklas Grossm an and centred to Bennett, who didn’t get a clean shot but got enough on the puck to put it past Domingue.

The Coyotes appeared to tie it at 1 on a power-play goal from Oliver Ekman-Larsson just a few seconds into the second period, but Hanzal was called for interference when he fell over goaltender Joni Ortio on the shot.

After Duclair’s goal put Arizona in front, Bennett tied it with his second goal at 16:41 of the second. He shot the puck off Domingue’s pads and put in the rebound.

Monahan scored on a power play late in the second when Dougie Hamilton’s shot was deflected out to him for a wrist shot that got by Domingue.
