GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Keith Yandle and Jordan Szwarz scored short-handed goals to lead a Phoenix Coyotes split squad to a 4-2 preseason victory over a Los Angeles Kings split squad on Sunday night.

With Phoenix leading 3-2 early in the third period, Yandle converted a tic-tac-toe passing play from Martin Hanzal and Max Domi at 5:03.
Szwarz cut the Coyotes' deficit to 2-1 when he scored a power-play goal. Mikkel Boedker tied it with a 5-on-3 goal at 1:09 of the second.
