GLENDALE, AZ - Dany Heatley scored two goals and the Minnesota Wild used a rare offensive outburst to hold off the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 Thursday night.
Jason Zucker scored 1:35 into the game on Minnesota's first shot and Heatley added one late in the period on its third. Heatley scored again in the second and Jared Spurgeon added his first goal in more than a year to put the Wild up 4-1.
The Coyotes rallied in the third period, getting a strange goal by Keith Yandle that caromed off the glass past Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom and another score by Shane Doan with 59 seconds left.
Phoenix couldn't score again, though, sending Minnesota to its fourth win in five games.
Rostislav Klesla also scored for the Coyotes, but goalie Mike Smith also had an off night, allowing four goals on 19 shots before being replaced by Jason LaBarbera to start the third period.
