Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Rob Klinkhammer scored his second goal of the game 22 seconds into the third period and the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Sunday afternoon.

Shane Doan, Mikkel Boedker and Lauri Korpikoski had Phoenix's other goals. Mike Smith made 31 saves for the Coyotes, who closed a five-game road trip by winning the final three.

Eric Staal, Riley Nash and Jeff Skinner scored for the Hurricanes.

Cam Ward made nine saves after coming on with 10:08 left in the second period to replace starting netminder Anton Khudobin. Khudobin suffered a lower-body injury when he skated out to play the puck.

Ward allowed three of Phoenix's goals.
