You don’t just waltz into Joe Louis Arena and emerge with a win. But believe it, or not, the Arizona Coyotes did just that.

Despite having one of the best home records in the Eastern Conference, the Red Wings couldn’t snatch victory away from Arizona in overtime, as center Mark Arcobello’s goal with 3:08 remaining in the extra period gave the ‘Yotes the 5-4 win.

Arcobello’s game-winner was his second goal of the game, joining right-winger David Moss as other multi-goal scorer for the Coyotes Tuesday night.

Below we take a look at Arizona’s win, by the numbers.


The amount of time remaining in the first period when defenseman John Moore scored his first goal as a member of the Coyotes. The former New York Ranger was acquired at the trade deadline along with Anthony Duclair in exchange for defenseman Keith Yandle.


The Coyotes now have a 2-7-0 record this season when scoring the game’s first goal.


What a way to snap out of a goal-less slump. In addition to the night’s game-winner, Mark Arcobello’s goal midway through the second period was his first goal in the last 12 games. Previous to that, Arcobello was a scoring machine, notching five goals in his first seven games since arriving in Arizona from Pittsburgh.


Tuesday’s overtime victory was Arizona’s first since December 14, 2014, when the Coyotes defeated Edmonton 2-1 in Glendale. Tonight’s win was also the first time Arizona scored three or more goals since February 26.


The Coyotes were outshot by the Red Wings 37-22, making their win Tuesday all the more miraculous. Goaltender Mike Smith did all he could despite being peppered all night, coming up with 33 saves.


Arizona’s eight-game losing streak is snapped with Tuesday’s win in Detroit. The ‘Yotes will go for two in a row when they visit Buffalo Thursday night.
