SAN JOSE -- The Coyotes rallied to earn a point at SAP Center on Saturday night, but discussing the one they didn't earn after a wild 6-5 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks was a tough task.
"It sucks," Derek Stepan told reporters. "We get beat by a bounce off our own skate ... I thought we did a good job in overtime possessing the puck, but we didn't really bring anything to the net. They capitalized. Three-on-three hockey's entertaining for a reason. It doesn't take much to get a scoring chance, and they were able to capitalize on it. We walk away with a point. We came into a tough building and we did a lot of really good things tonight ... I just thought that we were closer to (playing) that 60-minute hockey game that we're always talking about."
The Coyotes trailed 4-3 after two periods, but took the lead by scoring twice within a three-minute span early in the third period. A goal by San Jose's Joonas Donskoi with 16 seconds left denied Arizona a regulation win and sent the game to overtime.
