Coyotes score 2 in 3rd to defeat Red Wings

– 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.

“Got an opening and a chance to shoot,” Stone said. “(Mike) Ribeiro mad a great pass, and I got a screen in front from Marty Hanzal.”

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

Andersson put a rebound over Smith’s shoulder 5:07 into the second period to tie it at1. At the 6-minute mark, Ericsson’s floating shot from the right point found the net.

But Boedker made it 2-all by scooping up a loose puck and putting it in just 1:04 later.

“I didn’t think we played very well,” Red Wings right wing Daniel Cleary said. “It wasn’t a very good game defensively, and we didn’t spend enough time in their zone.

“That’s two games in a row that we haven’t looked like us.”
