COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - Viktor Tikhonov’s goal with 2:32 remaining helped Phoenix beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 on Wednesday night, ending the Coyotes’ six-game losing skid.

The Coyotes had just weathered almost a minute with a two-man disadvantage when captain Shane Doan dug the puck off the back wall and backhanded a pass to Tikhonov, who was skating from right to left along the goal line. He deked with the puck and slid it past goaltender Steve Mason for his second goal of the year.

Tikhonov is the grandson of the former Soviet national team coach.
