GLENDALE Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Derek Stepan gathered the puck near Arizona’s blue line and flipped it toward the other end, hoping to kill a few extra seconds off Ottawa’s power play. The puck skittered off the ice and slipped through the goalie’s pads, a dump-in turned into an unexpected goal.A little lucky? Maybe, but the Coyotes are also creating good fortune by playing hard and smart during a four-game winning streak.Stepan scored his short-handed goal in Arizona’s three-goal first period and Antti Raanta stopped 25 shots, lifting the surging Coyotes to a 5-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.“You earn your bounces,” Stepan said. “We had some bounces going the other way early on in the year, now they’re starting to go our way and in a few weeks, they’re going to come back the other way. Good teams find ways to win any given night regardless of the bounces.”The Coyotes opened the season 1-4-0, shut out three times their first four games. Once Arizona started scoring, the pucks have kept finding the net.The Coyotes chased Ottawa goalie Mike Condon with three goals on 10 shots in the first period, capped by Stepan’s short-hander. Arizona has short-handed goals in three straight games for the second time in franchise history (1985) , with five in that span.Alex Galchenyuk notched his first goal with Arizona and had an assist on Oliver Ekman Larsson’s power-play goal in the third period. Brad Richardson and Richard Panik also scored for the Coyotes, who have outscored opponents 20-4 during the four-game winning streak.“It’s hard to score goals in this league and we’ve got a good mojo going right now,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said.The Senators don’t.Coming off an overtime loss at Vegas on Sunday, Ottawa was flat early while falling into a big hole. The Senators seemed to gain momentum on Alex Forementon’s first goal of the season in the second period, but Arizona scored 22 seconds later. The Senators have lost three straight.“That was our first stinker,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. “We got out-competed in the first period and that usually doesn’t happen.”Arizona beat Tampa Bay 7-1 on Saturday and didn’t take long to keep the scoring going. Galchneyuk created a turnover by knocking away Mark Stone’s stick and slipped the puck behind Condon’s pads 4 1/2 minutes in. Richardson scored two minutes later, one-timing Michael Grabner’s pass from behind the goal.Stepan made it 3-0 late in the first period with a tumbling puck from Arizona’s blue line that squirted through Condon’s pads and sent him to the bench, replaced by Craig Anderson.“You give a team three goals, 90 percent of the time you’re not coming back,” Senators center Chris Tierney said.Tierney nearly got Ottawa back in it a minute into the second period, getting a goal reinstated upon review after it was initially waved off for high-sticking. But then it was waved off after Arizona’s challenge for goalie interference was upheld.Another Coyotes challenge for goalie interference did not pan out and Forementon’s goal stood Authentic Mats Zuccarello Jersey , seemingly giving the Senators momentum.Instead, Panik scored 22 seconds later, beating Anderson from between the circles.“That was a big goal for us right there,” Galchenyuk said. “You don’t know which way it’s going to go, but we’re confident and we were able to make a statement.”Notes: Senators D Mark Borowiecki sat out the first of a three-game suspension for an illegal check to the head of Vegas F Cody Eakin on Sunday. … Coyotes D Kevin Connauton missed the game due to an illness. … Ottawa F Brady Tkachuk began skating this week for the first time since suffering a torn leg ligament on Oct. 15. … The Coyotes have won three straight over Ottawa for the first time since taking five in a row from 1994-96.UP NEXTThe Senators host the Buffalo Sabres on Friday.The Coyotes host the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday. WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Roman Josi had this one circled on his calendar.Hard to imagine the Predators defenseman could have played much better.Josi had five assists, Craig Smith scored twice and Ryan Hartman redirected in the winning goal during his Nashville debut, sending the streaking Predators to a 6-5 victory over the Winnipeg Jets in their Central Division showdown Tuesday night.”We knew before the game it’s a huge game,” Josi said. ”We marked it as probably the most important game up to this point in the season.”Hartman, acquired in a trade with Chicago at Monday’s deadline, gave the defending Western Conference champions their first lead with a minute left when he tapped in a feed from Josi.”I didn’t really have to do much for it Mika Zibanejad Jersey , you know,” Hartman said of his ninth goal this season. ”(Josi) put that right on my tape.”Kyle Turris, Mattias Ekholm and Ryan Johansen also scored as Nashville won its fifth straight, padding its division lead to four points over the Jets. Josi extended his point streak to five games (one goal, 11 assists).”We know how well they’re playing this year and how good of a team they are,” Josi said. ”It was a great test for us.”Josi praised Hartman for his all-around effort.”I thought even before he scored that goal he was really good,” Josi said. ”He was hard on the forecheck. He made a lot of good plays, had a lot of shots. I thought he played great and obviously he topped it off with the game-winner.”Mark Scheifele scored twice and new Winnipeg forward Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist. Matt Hendricks and Nikolaj Ehlers also scored.Stastny was obtained Monday in a trade with St. Louis.”It was good to get it out of the way,” he said after scoring his 13th goal this season and first with his new club. ”This afternoon I didn’t sleep a wink. I was just more anxious, nerves and excitement.”Ehlers added one assist and Patrik Laine had two.Pekka Rinne stopped 34 shots for the Predators, who opened a four-game road trip. Rinne improved to 14-1-1 in his last 16 starts.Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves for Winnipeg.”It was last shot wins Womens Pavel Buchnevich Jersey ,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. ”I don’t think they got any more quality offense in the third.”After a scoreless first period, the teams combined for seven goals in the second, with Winnipeg taking a 4-3 lead into the third.The second period featured five goals in just under five minutes.Hendricks started it off at 2:45 when his shot from the slot went past Rinne. Smith got the equalizer six minutes later, but then Scheifele triggered the flurry of goals at both ends of the ice.The top-line center scored his 20th of the season off a slick pass from Jack Roslovic at 12:41. Smith got his second when Stastny sent him a pass from the side of the net out front less than two minutes later for a 3-1 lead.Blake Wheeler assisted on the second goal, extending his point streak to nine games with four goals and 11 assists during that stretch.Turris replied at 15:07 to cut the lead 3-2, and Ekholm scored with one second left on a power play after the Jets had unsuccessfully challenged Turris’ goal for offside. Winnipeg was dinged with a delay-of-game penalty for the failed challenge.Ehlers finished the period’s scoring with his 25th of the season at 17:39.Stastny scored 10 minutes into the third for a 5-3 lead, but Smith scored 55 seconds later and Johansen tied it for Nashville at 13:56.”The positivity in this room, even though you’re down a goal, down two goals, the guys know there’s enough tools in here to score plenty of goals and win at any given time,” Hartman said.NOTES: Viktor Arvidsson had two assists for the Predators. … Laine got assists on the goals by Stastny and Ehlers Vladislav Namestnikov Jersey , pushing his point streak to six games. … Stastny won 14 of 19 faceoffs. ”He’s a cagey guy,” Scheifele said. ”He knows the areas to go to to create offense, and in the (defensive) zone the areas to be.” … Jets defenseman Joe Morrow, just acquired from Montreal, was on the ice after veteran Toby Enstrom was scratched.UP NEXTPredators: Play in Edmonton on Thursday.Jets: Host the Detroit Red Wings on Friday.—
