Moller, Kings edge Coyotes in wild affair

Sep 23, 2008 - 5:24 AM LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Oscar Moller scored the game-winner with 1:17 left in the third and added a pair of assists Monday as the Los Angeles Kings edged the Phoenix Coyotes, 6-4, in the preseason opener for both teams, which was a rare split-squad contest.

David Meckler and Derek Armstrong each scored a pair of goals and Brian Boyle had a goal and two assists for Los Angeles, which tied for the fewest points in the league last season.

Steve Reinprecht recorded a goal and an assist for the Coyotes, who scored three times in the second period. Keith Yandle, rookie Kyle Turris and Garth Murray also scored for Phoenix.

Turris, the third pick of June's draft, opened the scoring just 1:47 into the game. However, Meckler and Armstrong scored less than three minutes apart in the first to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead. Meckler tallied at 7:55 of the first and Armstrong scored at 10:41.

Armstrong's second goal at 7:18 of the second gave the Kings a 4-3 lead, but Yandle knotted it again with 3:58 remaining in the period. It remained that way until Moller tallied with 2:17 left, and Meckler added an empty-netter with one second remaining.
