Anaheim took a 1-0 lead just 3:40 into the game when Coyotes defenceman Kurt Sauer fumbled the puck behind the Phoenix net and bounced it off Bryzgalov’s right leg and into the net while trying to regain control.

Carcillo tied the game with 49.1 seconds left in the first when he deflected Viktor Tikhonov’s shot from the top of the right faceoff circle past LeNeveu.

Tikhonov, the grandson of the longtime coach of the Soviet national team, has a goal and two assists in his first three pre-season games.
