 PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Peter Mueller scored at 6:25 of the third period to break a tie and help the Phoenix Coyotes to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.
Mueller punched in a rebound during a wild goalmouth scramble after goaltender Marty Biron had turned away shots by Zbynek Michalek and Steven Reinprecht.
Keith Yandle and Fredrik Sjostrom also scored for the Coyotes, who were coming off back-to-back road wins over the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers. Phoenix has won four of its last five games, all on the road.
Scott Hartnell and Mike Richards scored for the Flyers, who have a season-longest four-game losing streak.
The Flyers have lost eight of their last nine games at home (1-6-2) since opening the season 6-0 in Philadelphia.
Hartnell put the Flyers ahead on a power play at 12:03 of the first period when he redirected a pass from R.J. Umberger past Ilja Bryzgalov, who had 26 saves.
Richards made it 2-0 when he poke-checked the puck away from defenseman Ed Jovanovski near the blue line and skated in to score unassisted at 7:21 of the second period.
The Coyotes scored twice in 2 minutes, 31 seconds, to pull even late in the second period.
After Yandle hammered in a rebound at 17:07, Sjostrom took a backhanded pass from Shane Doan and scored shorthanded from the front of the left circle at 19:38.
It was the first goal of the season for Yandle, who was recalled from the minors on Dec. 10.
Biron made 39 saves for the Flyers, who were outshot 42-28.
