Sam Gagner has tying goal late in regulation, adds shootout winner as Oilers beat Coyotes, 3-2

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Sam Gagner got the tying goal with 40.4 seconds to play in regulation, then scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout to lift the Edmonton Oilers to a 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday night.

Oilers defenceman Justin Schultz also scored and Ben Scrivens stopped 24 shots through overtime.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored the tying goal for the Coyotes in the second period, and Kyle Chipchura put them ahead with 7:18 left in the third. Thomas Greiss also stopped 24 shots for Phoenix.

It was a tough loss for the Coyotes, who are vying for the last wild-card spot in the Western Cconference. Phoenix moved one point ahead of ninth-place Dallas, but the Stars have two games in hand.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
