Phil Kessel scored with less than four seconds left in regulation time in Arizona's 4-3 shootout loss to San Jose on Thursday.
While that's not the result the Coyotes wanted, at least they managed to get a point out of the contest. For a while it looked like they weren't going to manage that. San Jose jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period and the Sharks were up 3-1 midway through the third. Clayton Keller scored at 16:30 of the third period and then Kessel netted his timely marker. "We just kind of stuck with the game and we got a couple of bounces. I got lucky, I'll tell you," Kessel said. "We worked hard and we created our own luck with our work ethic and our chances." Kessel is someone that the Coyotes will be looking for more from this season after he scored a disappointing 14 goals and 38 points in 70 contests in 2019-20. Yesterday 5:38 am (EST)
