GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Coyotes were on their heels from the start, giving up two early goals against the NHL’s lowest-scoring team.
A flurry of flying fists finally got their attention.
Christian Dvorak scored two goals and the Coyotes rallied from a three-goal deficit to beat the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 in a testy game Monday night.
“It was a wacky game,” said Arizona defenseman Jakob Chychrun, who had a goal and an assist. “We just have to be better at the drop of the puck, but it was a heck of a response.”
The buzz heading into the game was the much-anticipated debut of Anaheim top prospect Trevor Zegras.
Big hits, fights and bunches of goals became the focus once the puck dropped.
