Coyotes rally late in regulation, beat Capitals 4-3 in shootout

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Shane Doan scored his second goal to cap a rally late in regulation and the Phoenix Coyotes scored on both attempts in the shootout to end Washington's five-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory Saturday night.

Troy Brouwer and John Carlson scored two of Washington's three goals on power plays in a strange second period that included a string of penalties and rare delay of game call against Phoenix goalie Mike Smith for playing the puck across the red line.

Trailing 3-1, Phoenix rallied late in the third period on goals by Lauri Korpikoski, who scored as he was falling to the ice, and Doan's fourth goal in three games on a power play with 1:46 left.

Antoine Vermette and Mikkel Boedker scored in the shootout and Washington failed on its two attempts to lose for the first time in five shootouts.

Joel Ward also scored for the Capitals, who have scored seven power-play goals in three games.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
