GLENDALE, Ariz. - Mikkel Boedker scored the lone shootout goal in the fifth round to lift the Phoenix Coyotes to a 5-4 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

Thomas Greiss made 36 saves and stopped all five shootout attempts for the Coyotes, who rallied from a 3-0 deficit.

Jordan Szwarz scored his first NHL goal and Derek Morris and Shane Doan also scored for Phoenix, which has points in 10 of its past 11 games.

David Legwand had a goal and two assists — all in the first period — and Matt Hendricks, Eric Nystrom and Paul Gaustad also scored for the Predators.

Nashville was playing the first game of a franchise-record 17-day, seven-game road swing to accommodate the Country Music Awards on Nov. 6 at Bridgestone Arena.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
