The Coyotes looked more focused this time around. Slow starts in recent games doomed the team and led to the four-game losing streak, but tonight the trend ended along with the streak.

Scoring Summary

1st period

1-0 ARI goal @ 18:22: Mikkel Boedker backhand shot, assisted by Oliver Ekman-Larsson. Boeds drives into the net from the left side and beats Craig Anderson.

2nd period

1-1 OTT goal @ 18:11: Cody Ceci wrist shot, assisted by Bobby Ryan and Mark Stone. Michael Stone turns the puck over to his brother, the Senators advance forward and Ceci ties it up after a pass from Bobby Ryan.

3rd period

2-1 ARI goal @ 14:31: Brad Richardson wrist shot, assisted by Jordan Martinook and Klas Dahlbeck. Richardson gets the rebound from a Dahlbeck shot and scores on a nice effort.

3-1 ARI goal @ 15:48: Mikkel Boedker backhand shot, unassisted. Boedker takes the puck after a blunder from the Senators defense and easily scores.

4-1 ARI goal @ 17:58: Mikkel Boedker wrist shot, assisted by Max Domi and Kyle Chipchura. Boeds gets the hat trick on the empty net!
