GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Alex Goligoski and Lauren Dauphin scored 1:57 apart in the first period and the Arizona Coyotes beat the Nashville Predators 4-1 Saturday night.

Brendan Perlini added his first career goal, Martin Hanzal also scored and Mike Smith made 42 saves for the Coyotes, who were 0-3-3 since their last win against at Edmonton on Nov. 27.

Arizona scored four goals for the first time since Nov. 8 after totaling four in its previous four games.

The Coyotes took a 1-0 lead with 7:10 left in the first as Goligoski fired a one-timer from the top of the right circle for his first of the season.

Dauphin made it 2-0 less than two minutes later when he tapped in a rebound from the left side of the crease after.
