SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Noah Gregor had the go-ahead goal in the third period and added an assist to help the San Jose Sharks rally past the Arizona Coyotes 4-2 on Sunday night and snap a three-game losing streak.

Timo Meier, Nick Bonino and Rudolfs Balcers also scored for San Jose, who trailed 2-1 in the third period with just under five minutes to play after Arizona’s Lawson Crouse scored.

But Meier tied it 22 seconds later when he beat Karel Vejmelka to the upper corner. Gregor gave the Sharks their second goal in a 44-second span to put San Jose ahead 3-2.

Balcers added an empty-net goal in the final minute for San Jose to seal it.

Phil Kessel also had a goal for the Coyotes.

Bonino gave the Sharks a 1-0 lead 20 seconds after the opening faceoff when tipped in a shot from Andrew Cogliano in front of the net. Gregor, credited with the second assist, won a 50-50 puck off the backboard to create the scoring opportunity.

The Coyotes evened things at 18 minutes of the second period on Kessel’s goal.
