GLENDALE, Arizona (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames continue their season-ending stretch against the Pacific Division on Wednesday night when they visit the Phoenix Coyotes.

Flames coach Darryl Sutter will complete his two-game suspension for player selection and team conduct during a late brawl in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Nashville. Krzysztof Oliwa was suspended three games for abuse of officials in the same game.

The Coyotes ended a 15-game winless skid with a 3-2 overtime win at Minnesota on Monday.

Mike Comrie, who scored the tying goal Sunday in Chicago, scored 25 seconds into overtime. Dan Cleary scored a shorthanded goal and Shane Doan tallied on the power play as Phoenix won for the first time since February 20 and picked up its first win under interim coach Rick Bowness.

Calgary has won four of its last five meetings with Phoenix.
