The Toronto Maple Leafs win streak came to an end Monday night at the hands of the Arizona Coyotes, who extended their own win streak to three games.

Halfway through the first, Arizona got out to a 1-0 lead with a power play goal from Brendan Perlini who’s father, Fred Perlini, appeared in 8 games for the Maple Leafs.

James van Riemsdyk tied things up for Toronto less than a minute into the second with a power play goal, but Arizona went on to regain the lead late in the period with Oliver Ekman-Larsson scoring on the power play.

While it appeared Auston Matthews had tied the game 2-2 with a little under four minutes remaining in the 3rd period, the call on the ice was overturned due to goaltender interference. Zach Hyman appeared to spear Coyotes goaltender Antti Raanta prior to the goal, interfering with his ability to make the save on Matthews.

After Matthews’ goal was called back and a flurry of saves by Raanta, Arizona sealed their third straight victory with empty net goals from Max Domi and Tobias Rieder.

The Coyotes next return home to take on the San Jose Sharks Wednesday, where as the Leafs head to Florida to face the Panthers.
