Arcobello nets 2nd goal in OT to lift Oilers to 4-3 win over Panthers that snaps 5-game skid

SUNRISE, Fla. - Mark Arcobello scored his second goal in overtime and the Edmonton Oilers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Edmonton went on the power play after Florida's Scottie Upshall was called for tripping 32 seconds into the extra period and Arcobello rifled a slap shot from the left circle that got past Florida goalie Jacob Markstrom 1:23 later.

Taylor Fedun scored his first career goal and Philip Larsen also scored for Edmonton. Devan Dubnyk made 20 saves. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had two assists.

Upshall scored two third-period goals and Marcel Goc also scored for the Panthers. Markstrom stopped 23 shots.

Florida has lost six straight and nine of its past 10.
