Smith makes 43 saves, Coyotes nip Sharks 3-2 in OT
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Martin Hanzal redirected Alex Goligoski's shot into the net at 1:16 of overtime, giving the Arizona Coyotes a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.
Mike Smith stopped 43 shots for Arizona, 18 in the third period. Tobias Rieder and Max Domi scored for the Coyotes, who ended a four-game losing streak and played into overtime for the third straight game.
San Jose lost its third straight despite finishing with a season-high 45 shots on goal.
The Sharks cut the Coyotes' lead to 2-1 just 41 seconds into the third period with Joe Pavelski's sixth goal of the season, a long, rising shot that was too fast for Smith to deflect. Tommy Wingels then scored off a deflected shot from teammate Matt Nieto at 10:28.
