Martin Hanzal had a goal and an assist, and the Phoenix Coyotes held off the New Jersey Devils 3-2 Saturday night to give coach Dave Tippett his 450th career victory.

Jeff Halpern scored for Phoenix and Jordan Szwarz also had a goal before playing the third period with stiches in his chin after being cut with a skate late in the second. Phoenix has its first winning streak since Dec. 10-12 and gave Tippett his 100th home win with the Coyotes.

New Jersey got off to a sluggish start at the end of a four-game road trip before rallying to make it close. Ryane Clowe had a goal and an assist and Jaromir Jagr scored his 696th career goal with 2:14 left in regulation.

Jagr had another good chance with just over a minute left, but was stopped by Mike Smith, who had 32 saves.
