Associated Press Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews celebrates his goal against the Coyotes Thursday.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - It took Brad Richardson until Thursday night to score his first goal of the season, but it came in a win that gave the Arizona Coyotes sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division.

Richardson had a goal and an assist, Clayton Keller scored twice and the Coyotes jumped out to a comfortable early lead on their way to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks.

"I could have a lot more goals than I do. I've had so many Grade-A chances, I'm just not getting enough lucky bounces," said Richardson, now in his 15th NHL season. "I try to do other things to help the team."

Vinnie Hinostroza, playing against his former team, assisted on all three of Arizona's first-period goals to match his career high for points in a game. He became the first Coyotes player in more than a year to have three assists in a single period.

"We limited their chances for the most part," Hinostroza said. "It's always nice to do that against your old team."

Michael Grabner and ex-Blackhawk Nick Schmaltz each added a goal for the Coyotes. Christian Dvorak had two assists and Keller tied a franchise record with 12 shots on goal during Arizona's fourth victory in six games.

Jonathan Toews and Dylan Strome, the Coyotes' top draft pick in 2015, scored for the Blackhawks, who lost their third straight.

The Coyotes had lost four of their past five.
