Coyotes beat Blackhawks 4-2 to push the scoring streak to 8

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Juuso Valimaki broke a tie with 3-12 left and the Arizona Coyotes defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Saturday night.

Valimaki also assisted on Arizona’s first two goals to help the Coyotes extend their scoring streak to eight games.

Clayton Keller scored his 32nd goal of the season to equalize six minutes into the third period. Keller also had two assists, giving him 43 for the season. He has scored in eight straight games.

Barrett Hayton – who has points in each of his last seven games – scored in the second half for Arizona, and Matias Maccelli found an empty net with 38.3 seconds remaining.

“It’s not always pretty, but when you’re confident like we are now, we found a way,” said Coyotes coach Andre Tourigny.

Ivan Prosvetov, making his third start of the season, stopped 32 shots for Arizona to improve to 3-0. The Coyotes have won four straight games, all at home, and are 20-11-3 at Mullett Arena.
