Coyotes’ goal fest continues against Carolina Hurricanes


Not too long ago, the Arizona Coyotes couldn’t buy a goal.
Now, they can’t stop scoring.
The Coyotes scored three goals in a four-minute span in the first period — including two in a minute — on Friday against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Even more impressive, a goal came on each the power play, at even strength and shorthanded.
The first goal came 13:07 into the period on the penalty kill courtesy of Brad Richardson.
It was Richardson’s third shorthanded goal of the season and the Coyotes’ seventh, an NHL best.
