Coy­otes end 5-game road skid with win

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS - By Dan Gel­ston The As­so­ci­ated Press

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.
