Coyotes Score Late to Down Red Wings

The Phoenix Coyotes scored twice late in the third period on Thursday night, lifting them to a 4-2 win over the host Detroit Red Wings.

Michael Stone sent a blast from the blue line off the inside of the goalpost to the right of Detroit netminder Jimmy Howard and into the back of the net to break a 2-2 tie with 4:47 remaining in regulation, just seconds after the expiration of a Coyotes' power play.

With 51 seconds left, Antoine Vermette added an empty-net goal after Detroit forward Daniel Alfredsson failed to hold the puck in at the Phoenix blue line.

Derek Morris had gotten the Coyotes on the board just 2:21 into the game with a shot similar to Stone's, a blast from the point off the same goalpost and in behind Howard.

Joakim Andersson tied things up at 5:07 of the second period, lifting the rebound of a Jakub Kindl floater towards the goal into the top of the net.

Just 53 seconds later, Jonathan Ericsson rifled a shot past Phoenix goalie Mike Smith to put Detroit out front.

Mikkel Boedker tied things back up at 7:04 of the period, outwaiting a sprawling Howard to lift the rebound of a Morris chance into the top of the net.

Howard finished the night with 34 saves on 37 shots against while Smith had 28 stops on 30 Detroit chances.

Nice glove-down by Kronwall. Leyland wants him as a defensive substitution.

Smith stays in? PHX must not have much faith in Greiss

Bouncing between tigers & wings...some of the replay of Wings game looks like we're getting cheap shotted without penalty...I hate that.
