The Phoenix Coyotes struggled for much of last night against the Flyers. However, the score was tied with less than 20 seconds to go when Matt Read scored the game winner to ruin the Desert Dogs chances of at least getting one point on the road. Giving up late goals is becoming a trend for Dave Tippet's squad and its costing them valuable points. Tippett's team is next in action on Saturday night when they take on the Buffalo Sabres.
