Coyotes Survive Rally to Hand Devils 10th Straight Loss, 5-4

Tobias Reider and Anthony DeAngelo each had a goal and assist and the Arizona Coyotes survived a furious New Jersey rally to hand the Devils their 10th consecutive loss, 5-4 on Saturday night.

The Coyotes led 4-0 early in the second period, but needed the goal from the rookie DeAngelo with 6:29 to play for what proved to be the winning margin.

DeAngelo's goal put Arizona up 5-3 before John Moore's backhanded upper shelf shot past goalie Mike Smith cut it to 5-4 with 4:58 remaining.

Smith preserved the victory by blocking Taylor Hall's penalty shot with 2:38 to play.

Devils goalie Cory Schneider was lifted after allowing four goals on 10 shots in the first 24:13 of the game.
