GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Dave Bolland had two goals and an assist, Marian Hossa scored twice against the team that knocked him out of last year's playoffs and the Chicago Blackhawks spoiled another celebration by holding off the Phoenix Coyotes 6-4 Sunday night.

Chicago ruined the Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup banner-raising ceremony Saturday with a flurry of goals and did the same thing to the Coyotes after their Pacific Division banner unveiling.

Hossa had two goals and an assist against the Kings in his first game since being knocked out of last year's playoffs on a blindside hit by Phoenix's Raffi Torres.

Against the Coyotes, Hossa scored 50 seconds before Viktor Stalberg in the second period and again 14 seconds into the third.
