Flyers escape 2-goal hole, top Coyotes in OT
Shayne Gostisbehere scored 1:01 into overtime to rally the Philadelphia Flyers past the visiting Arizona Coyotes 5-4 Thursday night.
The Flyers had secured seven of eight points on their just-concluded, four-game road trip, including a 5-2 win at Arizona on Monday.
Arizona goaltender Darcy Kuemper made 26 saves.
The Flyers jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead with early goals from Konecny and Laughton. The lead was the first one at home for Philadelphia since Oct. 20.
The Coyotes got within 2-1 at 8:30 of the first period when Ekman-Larsson connected on the power play with a slap shot through several bodies in front of the goal.
Then at 1:51 of the second, Richardson equalized for the Coyotes with his fifth goal of the season.
The Coyotes took a 3-2 lead with their eighth short-handed goal of the season when Stepan broke free at center ice along the boards, skated in and scored at 6:14 of the middle period. Gostisbehere had the puck taken from him, and it resulted in a third goal for Arizona.
Amazingly, Arizona scored again short-handed for its ninth of the season just 24 seconds later when Grabner stole the puck and scored for a 4-2 advantage. Pickard was then pulled for Elliott.
Laughton drew the Flyers within 4-3 when he scored his second of the game at 2:21 of the third period.
Weise tied the game at 4 at 17:47 when he received a pass from Gostisbehere and scored. It was the first goal of the season for Weise, and Gostisbehere later secured the game-winner in overtime.
