Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz scored, and Kris Letang had two assists for the Penguins. They have lost three of four and five of seven. Jeff Zatkoff, making his first start since Dec. 31, stopped 20 shots.




SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Taylor Hall snapped a scoring drought with two goals, Cam Talbot stopped 30 shots and Edmonton added to Florida’s slide.

Hall, who had an assist as well, scored just one goal in his previous 14 games.

Reilly Smith and Quinton Howden scored early in the third period for Florida, which has dropped four straight since winning 12 in a row. Al Montoya gave up three goals on the first seven shots he faced, and the Panthers had their club-record home winning streak snapped at seven games.

Since their winning streak, the Panthers have been outscored 16-5.

Antoine Vermette’s goal at 8:04 of the third period ended a scoreless drought of more than six periods for Arizona in its third straight loss. Louis Domingue stopped 26 shots in his first regulation defeat in 11 starts since taking over for injured Mike Smith.

Johnson made 11 saves in the first period when the Coyotes failed to score despite being on the power play for 6 minutes. Arizona went 0 for 5 with the man advantage.
