Coyotes snap 3-game skid with 6-5 win; Capitals coach Trotz rips team's 'behaviour' @NHLdotcom

WASHINGTON - Shane Doan scored twice, and the Arizona Coyotes salvaged at least something from their road trip, snapping a three-game skid with a come-from-behind 6-5 win over the mistake-prone Washington Capitals on Sunday night.

The Coyotes trailed 3-1 after the first period, but power-play goals by Michael Stone and Doan tied it in the second before Sam Gagner and Doan capitalized on sloppy turnovers early in the third. Doan's second goal came after Washington's Alex Ovechkin ? who earlier broke a six-game goal drought ? completely whiffed trying to control the puck near the side boards in the Capitals' end.

Antoine Vermette tallied in the first period, and Tobias Rieder added his first NHL goal late in the third for the Coyotes, who had been outscored 12-4 in the first three games of their trip.
