Lauri Korpikoski scored his ninth goal of the season early in the third period to lead the Phoenix Coyotes to a 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night at the RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C.
Ray Whitney, a former Hurricanes player, had a goal and assist for the Coyotes. Cal O'Reilly and Rostislav Klesla also scored for Phoenix.
Tuomo Ruutu got his team-leading 11th goal for Carolina, while Andreas Nodl and Jiri Tlusty also scored.
The Coyotes won for the first time after trailing going into the third period, while Carolina suffered its first loss in regulation after holding a two-period lead.
Elsewhere: Andrew Brunette and Patrick Sharp scored 21 seconds apart midway through the second period, and Corey Crawford made 20 saves in his first start in more than two weeks as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the visiting Montreal Canadiens, 5-1, in Chicago's United Center.
Engelland faces hearing
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland will have a hearing Thursday with Brendan Shanahan, who handles supplemental discipline for the NHL.
The hearing will concern Engelland's hit to the head of Chicago center Marcus Kruger during the Penguins' 3-2 victory against the Blackhawks Tuesday night at Consol Energy Center.
Reports out of Chicago suggested that Kruger might have a concussion, which, if true, could have an impact on any punishment Engelland might receive.
Engelland did not speak with reporters.
