Surging Coyotes rally to slow down McDavid’s Oilers with OT victory

Derek Stepan scored in overtime as the Arizona Coyotes came away with a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday.

Stepan took a feed from Nick Schmaltz and picked the corner 2:01 into the extra period.

Michael Grabner and Carl Soderberg also scored for the Coyotes (9-4-1), who are 8-2-0 in their past 10 games.

Connor McDavid and Gaetan Haas responded for the Oilers (10-4-2), who had a two-game winning streak snapped.

The Oilers only needed 91 seconds to get on the scoreboard as McDavid had a highlight-reel goal, undressing Coyotes defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and blowing past goalie Darcy Kuemper to record his seventh goal of the season.
