Stone's late goal gives Coyotes win over Red Wings

DETROIT - Michael Stone's goal with 4:47 left broke a tie, and the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 on Thursday night.

Derek Morris and Antoine Vermette both had a goal and an assist, and Mikkel Boedker also scored for Phoenix. Mike Smith made 28 saves.

Joakim Andersson and Jonathan Ericsson scored for Detroit, and Jimmy Howard stopped 35 shots. Andersson and Ericsson scored 53 seconds apart early in the second period to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead.

Stone fired a slap shot from the right point that went through teammate Martin Hanzal's and caromed in off the far goal post. It came 2 seconds after a Coyotes' power play ended.

Vermette added an empty-net goal in the last minute.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
