Coyotes beat Dinamo Riga 3-1 in exhibition

Petr Prucha scored the go-ahead goal with two seconds left in

the second period, and the Phoenix Coyotes went on to beat Dinamo

Riga 3-1 on Wednesday.

Taylor Pyatt and Lee Stempniak scored the Coyotes’ other goals

in the team’s final exhibition game before facing the Boston Bruins

in the season-opener this weekend in Prague.

Prucha’s power-play goal from wide open in front of the net was

assisted by Radim Vrbata. The two players will have the rare treat

of opening the regular season at home in the Czech Republic.

Mark Hartigan scored Dinamo Riga’s only goal, in the 10th minute

of the second period, tapping in the puck from a melee in front of

goalie Jason Labarbera.
