Doan, Coyotes outlast Flyers, 3-2, in OT

NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Phoenix captain Shane Doan scored an overtime power-play goal to lift the streaking Coyotes to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers, their eighth straight victory.

Doan slapped a shot past Sergei Bobrovsky at 2:41 of an overtime that was forced when Claude Giroux tied the game with 1:13 left in regulation.

Doan was playing in his 1,098th game with the Winnipeg/Phoenix franchise, tying him with Teppo Numminen for first on the all-time list. Barring injury, he'll break the club mark on Wednesday.

Taylor Pyatt put Phoenix up with 9:30 left in the third, with a shot that somehow eluded Bobrovsky. He took the puck down the left side and fired from just in front of the blue line. Bobrovsky appeared to have the puck lined up, but it took a bad hop off his skate and flipped over his leg.

The Flyers lost for the third time in nine games and fell to 16-6 since New Year's Day. They still lead Tampa Bay by eight points in the race for the East's No. 1 seed.
