      Coyotes race past Red Wings 4-2

      Chris Conner scored in his Phoenix debut, Mikkel Boedker had a pair of assists, and the Coyotes held off the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 on Thursday night.

      Phoenix kicked off a critical three-game homestand by beating Los Angeles on Tuesday and left the Red Wings flatfooted with three second-period goals.

      Michael Stone got the flurry started, Shane Doan finished it off, and Martin Hanzal scored into an empty net with less than a second left. Chad Johnson stopped 34 shots in his third start of the season.

      Valtteri Filppula scored in the first period and Daniel Cleary had a power-play goal with 1:13 left in the third, but Detroit couldn't finish off the comeback and lost for the third time in four games.
