3/5/16: Alex Tanguay deflects Antoine Vermette's pass past Al Montoya for his second goal of the game, giving the Coyotes a 4-1 lead in the 3rd

  • 00:53 •

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Alex Tanguay was itching to play his first game with the Arizona Coyotes, particularly linemates and fellow Quebec natives Antoine Vermette and Anthony Duclair, but a sore knee pushed his debut back 48 hours.

He more than made up for the delay.

Tanguay had two goals and an assist, and his new line combined for nine points to help the Coyotes end a seven-game losing streak with a 5-1 win against the Florida Panthers at Gila River Arena on Saturday.
