Recap: Arizona vs. Edmonton

Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored with just 0.3 seconds left in overtime to give the Arizona Coyotes a 2-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

With time winding down, Martin Erat skated the puck into the Edmonton zone and dished it to his right for Sam Gagner, who then fired the puck over to the left wing where a skating Ekman-Larsson blasted a shot into the right corner of the net just before the final buzzer.

"When you give a guy like Ekman-Larsson a shot like that, he's not going to miss too often," said Oilers goaltender Ben Scrivens, who finished with 42 saves.

Brandon McMillan scored his first goal of the season while Devan Dubnyk stopped 30 shots for the Coyotes, who snapped a nine-game home losing streak and won in front of their fans for the first time since Nov. 4 against Toronto.

"It feels great," McMillan said of the win. "It's nice to get one for the fans."

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had the only goal of the game for the Oilers, who have dropped their past five games.

Edmonton scored at 14:56 of the first period as Nugent-Hopkins skated down the left wing and put the puck in from down low for his eighth goal of the season.

Halfway through the second period, the Coyotes tied the game when Joe Vitale came in from the left point and snapped a pass to the right wing for McMillan, who wristed it past Scrivens.
