SUNRISE, Fla. — Taylor Hall scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period and the Arizona Coyotes won their fourth straight game, 5-2 over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson had a goal and two assists, and Lawson Crouse, Carl Soderberg and Christian Dvorak also scored for the Coyotes. Phil Kessel added two assists and Adin Hill stopped 37 shots in his first start of the season.

Mike Hoffman and Noel Acciari had the goals for the Panthers. Chris Driedger made 32 saves in his second consecutive start.

Hall’s power-play goal, a shot from the right circle that went over Driedger’s left arm, gave the Coyotes a 3-2 lead at 15:39 of the second.

Soderberg’s goal from in front with 1:59 left in the third stretched it to 4-2. Crouse added an empty-netter in the final minute.

All five goals in the second period came during a span of 5:19.

Arizona tied it 2-all on the goal by Ekman-Larsson. Derek Stepan passed from the high slot to Ekman-Larsson in the left circle and his shot beat Driedger at 13:33.

After trailing 1-0, the Panthers scored twice in 36 seconds. They tied the game when Acciari redirected a shot from the point by Keith Yandle at 11:21. Hoffman gave Florida a 2-1 lead when he fired a shot from the left circle past Hill at 11:57.

The Coyotes went ahead 1-0 on Dvorak’s power-play goal. Hall shot from the right circle and the puck deflected off Dvorak’s stick in front with 9:40 left in the second. The goal was reviewed for a possible high stick, but the call stood.

NOTES: Coyotes G Antti Raanta is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. G Ivan Prosvetov, who has never played an NHL game, was called up from AHL Tucson last Sunday. … The Panthers played the first of a four-game homestand.
