Richards beats buzzer, lifts Rangers over Coyotes

Brad Richards scored a goal with just one- 2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes.

With the puck along the deep boards to the left of the net, Ryan Callahan sent a pass out to the left circle where Richards fired a backhand turnaround shot that banged in off the right post and went in as the buzzer sounded.

The official near the net waived the goal off, but the replay showed it crossed the line just before time expired to give the Rangers the win.

Marian Gaborik scored twice and Martin Biron turned aside 21 shots for the Rangers, who snapped a two-game slide.

Cal O'Reilly and Lauri Korpikoski each had a goal for the Coyotes, who have dropped four of five. Mike Smith allowed three goals on 30 shots.
