Video: Coyotes battle back to beat Predators

The Nashville Predators had their chances to completely put away the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday. Problem was, they just couldn’t.

The result: The Coyotes pulled off a comeback 5-4 shootout win over the visiting Predators. Mikkel Boedker scored the only goal in the five-round shootout.

The Predators had jumped out to a 3-0 lead by the end of the first period, and regained a two-goal advantage early in the third, but couldn’t hang on.

Shane Doan and Antoine Vermette scored just over two minutes apart in the third period to get the Coyotes back on even terms. Vermette’s goal, which came off a breakaway, was initially waved off.

Vermette was sent in all alone but was tripped, and went crashing into Predators’ goalie Carter Hutton. The puck slid through Hutton’s legs and crossed the goal line, just before Vermette’s momentum knocked Hutton into the net, dislodging it.

Upon further review, the call on the ice was overturned and the goal stood.

Nashville forward Matt Hendricks, who opened the scoring, left the game after taking a heavy hit by Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris and did not return.
