GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Christian Fischer scored at 2:43 of overtime and the Arizona Coyotes won for the fourth time in their past five games, a 3-2 victory against the Los Angeles Kings at Gila River Arena on Friday.
The win was the Coyotes' first against a Western Conference opponent this season and their second victory at home (2-7-1).

Fischer scored after Christian Dvorak's initial shot trickled between Darcy Kuemper's pads and he was able to push it into the open net.
"[Wednesday's] loss was obviously tough to swallow," Fischer said of a 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks at home. "Today was great. The way we played is the way we want to play moving forward."

Fischer also had an assist for his second NHL career multipoint game.
Kuemper made 30 saves for Los Angeles (12-8-3), which lost its third straight game and seventh in its past eight (1-6-1).
"At the end of the day we've got to win a hockey game, so let's not pat ourselves on the back and say we played better," Kings coach John Stevens said. "I think the guys played hard. I think the guys are totally invested. If it was a compete issue I'd be really concerned, but there's execution in certain parts of our game that clearly have to be a lot better."
Scott Wedgewood made 23 saves for Arizona (6-16-3). Wedgewood relieved injured starter Antti Raanta on Wednesday, which he believed helped him prepare for Friday.
"Any time you have an opportunity to know a day in advance as a goaltender, there's no unknowns," Wedgewood said. "Getting a start and getting through the first period, we played well and we're up one. It just kept flowing from there."

The Coyotes took a 1-0 lead at 10:17 of the first period. Oliver Ekman-Larsson took a pass from Fischer at the left point and released a quick shot that found its way through traffic and past Kuemper for a power-play goal.
The goal extended Ekman-Larsson's point streak to four games (two goals, three assists).
Los Angeles tied the game at 1-1 at 2:53 of the second period on a delayed penalty call. Marian Gaborik, who played his first game of the season, slid a pass to Anze Kopitar in the slot and Kopitar redirected it over Wedgewood's right shoulder.
Brendan Perlini put the Coyotes back on top with a redirection of Alex Goligoski's shot at 17:50 of the second period. Perlini has scored in three straight games.

"I thought a lot of guys had good games. Everybody contributed. We didn't have many passengers tonight." -- Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet
