Coyotes beat Flyers 4-3 in OT on Ekman-Larsson's shot
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored at 1:48 of overtime and the Arizona Coyotes kicked off their 20th season in the desert with a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.
The Flyers dominated the early part of overtime, but Mike Smith made a sprawling save on Matt Read and the Coyotes were able to clear.
The Coyotes used quick passing to get the puck to Ekman-Larsson, who gathered the feed from Martin Hanzal and lifted it over a diving Steve Mason on a delayed penalty.
Hanzal also had a goal, along with Shane Doan and Brad Richardson for the Coyotes. Smith stopped 27 shots.
Read, Michael Raffl and Wayne Simmonds scored for the Flyers. Mason stopped 31 shots.
