Apr 3, 2022, 7:44 PM | Updated: 7:57 pm

CHICAGO — Shayne Gostisbehere scored on a deflection with 14.7 seconds left in overtime, Michael Carcone and Travis Boyd also scored, and the Arizona Coyotes beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Sunday night.

The win was only struggling Arizona’s second in the last nine games (2-6-1). The slumping Blackhawks lost their fifth straight (0-3-2) after a two-game winning streak.

Gostisbehere’s game-winner came with Chicago’s Patrick Kane in the penalty box and deflected off Chicago center Jonathan Toews’ left toe before sliding by goaltender Kevin Lankinen.

Kane and Dylan Strome scored for Chicago.

Lankinen made the two best saves in the five-minute overtime, stopping Phil Kessel with a stick save and Barrett Hayton with a glove deflection within seconds of each other with about a minute to go.

Kane tied the game at 2 at 5:33 of the third period with his 22nd goal and 80th point of the season, firing a 50-foot wrist shot through traffic and past Coyotes goaltender Karel Vejmelka with the Blackhawks on the power play.

Carcone tied the game at 1 early in the second period, beating Lankinen over the shoulder with a redirection from the slot. Anton Stralman fed Carcone the puck from the right boards.

Boyd gave Arizona a 2-1 lead midway through the second, his wrist shot sailing over Lankinen’s right shoulder after four Blackhawks failed to check him en route to the slot.

Strome put the Blackhawks ahead 1:13 into the game, wristing the puck past Vejmelka from the slot after winger Alex DeBrincat created a turnover.

NOTES: Chicago C Jonathan Toews, who played his 1,000th NHL game at Tampa Bay on Thursday, was honored before the game. He was given the traditional silver stick and lauded by former teammates, including former goaltender Corey Crawford and winger Marian Hossa, in video tributes. … Arizona LW Andrew Ladd returned to the lineup after missing 18 games with a lower-body injury. … The Blackhawks named Chris Vosters, 30, their new television play-by-play announcer, replacing the retiring Pat Foley.


Arizona plays Monday night in St. Louis before hosting Vancouver on Thursday.

Chicago continues a five-game home stand with Seattle on Thursday and Dallas on Sunday.
