Coyotes’ 5-3 loss to the Flyers: By the numbers

Jan 5, 2014, 3:50 AM | Updated: 3:50 am

The Phoenix Coyotes remain winless in 2014, after blowing a two-goal lead in a 5-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Here’s a look back at the Coyotes’ two-goal loss by the numbers.


Phoenix’s first two goals of the night came just one minute and 25 seconds apart in the second period by Rob Klinkhammer and Lauri Korpikoski.


Rookie defenseman Connor Murphy recorded two assists in the second period for his first career multi-point game.


Dating back to Dec. 12, the Coyotes have lost three straight home games — Canadiens, Blue Jackets and Flyers — to Eastern Conference opponents.


The five goals Phoenix allowed Saturday night tied for a season-high at home. The other occurrence came in a 5-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks back on Nov. 30.


Korpikoski scored after a six-game goalless drought. Previous to the six-game span, the 27-year-old had notched a goal in three of four games.


Center Antoine Vermette came into the night ranked third in the NHL with 513 faceoff wins. However against Philadelphia, Vermette won just seven of his 16 chances in the circle.


Even in defeat, the Coyotes held on to their No. 8 spot in the Western Conference, as the team currently chasing them, the Dallas Stars, were blown out at home by the Detroit Red Wings.


Klinkhammer’s tally — the first of the night — ended a nine-game pointless streak for the Coyotes winger.


The Coyotes moved to 14-5-3 this season when scoring the first goal of the game.


Captain Shane Doan returned to the ice after a month-long absence due to Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Doan played just under 19 minutes of ice time, finishing with one blocked shot and an even plus-minus.


For Phoenix, the loss to Philadelphia extends its streak of 23 straight days without a win in regulation.


Dave Tippett’s squad officially reached the halfway point following Saturday’s game. The Coyotes’ 49 points are the third-most in franchise history through 41 games.
