Vincent Trocheck scored with just under five seconds remaining to lift the Florida Panthers to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.
Jonathan Marchessault also scored and James Reimer stopped 26 shots to help the Panthers complete a 5-0 road trip – their first perfect trip of at least that many games in franchise history.
The Panthers moved into a tie with Boston for third place in the Atlantic Division, but have the edge because they have a game in hand on the Bruins.
Kyle Brodziak, playing for the second time after missing 10 games due to a broken foot, scored for the Blues and Jake Allen finished with 31 saves. St. Louis lost its second straight since winning six in a row.
In Arizona, the Coyotes hit the Ducks for three in the first period and then held on for a narrow 3-2 win.
Christian Dvorak, Jakob Chychrun and Radim Vrbata fired the Coyotes into a 3-0 lead with 5:10 remaining in the opening period.
Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf pulled one back in the second period, deflecting Josh Manson’s shot past Mike Smith, and added a second with just 26.8 seconds left in the third.
