Recap


Blackhawks 6, Coyotes 4: Dave Bolland had two goals and an assist while Marian Hossa posted his second two-goal performance in as many days as Chicago spoiled Phoenix's home opener.

Patrick Sharp scored one goal and set up another and Viktor Stalberg also tallied for the Blackhawks, who have scored 11 goals in their first two games of the season.

Captain Shane Doan had a goal and an assist while playing in his 1,200th regular-season game, but the Coyotes allowed three tallies on just eight shots in the second period.

Trailing 2-1, Chicago scored the next four goals to take a seemingly comfortable three-goal lead. Sharp tied the contest midway through the second before Hossa and Stalberg tallied 50 seconds apart late in the period.

Hossa made it 5-2 with a backhander from low in the right faceoff circle just 14 seconds into the third, but Martin Hanzal and Doan scored 50 seconds apart shortly thereafter to get Phoenix within one. Bolland ended any comeback hopes at 5:50, as his redirection of Sharp's pass bounced high into the air off goaltender Mike Smith and into the net just 22 seconds after Doan's goal.

GAME NOTEBOOK: David Moss and Antoine Vermette also scored for Phoenix, while defenseman David Schlemko notched two assists. ...
