Recap: Arizona vs. Florida

Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored on the power play 2:20 into overtime to lift the Arizona Coyotes over the Florida Panthers, 2-1, on Saturday.

Florida's Aleksander Barkov was sent to the penalty box for high sticking 1:25 into overtime. Ekman-Larsson took a pass from Sam Gagner and beat Roberto Luongo from the left circle to help Arizona stop a three-game losing streak.

"I hope all my goals don't come in overtime, but it feels good to get them when they come," Ekman-Larsson said of the goal.

Justin Hodgman tied the game midway through the third period for the Coyotes, who got 23 saves from Mike Smith.

Brandon Pirri scored the lone goal for the Panthers, who went 2-0-2 on a four- game road trip. Luongo stopped 39-of-41 shots.

"We have to be smarter. We can't take however many penalties we took today. We'll kill some, but especially in overtime it is tough to kill," Luongo said.

Pirri broke a scoreless tie at the 1:47 mark of the third period. Arizona defenseman Keith Yandle turned the puck over behind his own net, and the disc went to Tomas Fleischmann. He fed it out front to Pirri, who used a backhander to beat Smith.

Hodgman scored in his NHL debut at 9:51 when he put home a rebound off Yandle's blast from the point.
