Coyotes end 5-game road skid with win
Martin Hanzal and Brad Richardson scored the decisive goals to help the Arizona Coyotes beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-4 on Thursday night to snap a fivegame road losing streak.
Jamie McGinn, Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Ryan White also scored for Arizona. The Coyotes have their only two wins this season against the Flyers.
The Coyotes salvaged one victory on a season-long, six-game road trip.
Louis Domingue stopped 28 shots and won his first game of the season. He had been 0-4 with a 5.03 goals against average and had stopped only 85 percent of his shots.
Nick Cousins, Brayden Schenn, Andrew MacDonald and Wayne Simmonds scored for the Flyers.
The Coyotes snapped a tie with two straight goals in the third scored in a bit of a bizarre manner.
Schenn leveled defenseman Michael Stone and Coyotes teammate Jakob Chychrun quickly came to his defense. Chychrun and Schenn brawled against the boards as the crowd erupted — and no one paid attention to the puck.
Hanzal made it 3-2 and led to a few confusing moments as officials checked to make sure the goal was scored before the fight. Wildly cheering fans fell silent in a second when the goal was announced.
Chychrun was tossed for instigating the fight.
Richardson made it 4-2 on a goal that was reviewed because the Flyers thought he ran down goalie Steve Mason. Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov took Richardson down and they went into the net together so the goal counted.
MacDonald, having a miserable season, made it 4-3 but the Flyers were out of rallies.
White scored an insurance goal late in third to send fans toward the exits. Simmonds scored with 14.3 seconds left.
