Coyotes top Predators 5-4 in shootout
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - 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.
