GLENDALE, Ariz. —

Nail Yakupov scored a power-play goal at 3:52 of overtime and the Edmonton Oilers fought back after giving up a goal late in regulation to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 2-1 Wednesday night.

The Oilers appeared to be on their way to helping Devan Dubnyk to his fifth career shutout, but put their goalie in a bind when Sam Gagner was called for a penalty and the Coyotes pulled goalie Chad Johnson.

Nick Johnson took advantage, whipping a shot past Dubnyk's glove side with 19 seconds left in regulation after teammate Radim Vrbata failed on a backhander.

Yakupov ended it in overtime, punching in a rebound after a shot by Ryan Whitney caromed off teammate Taylor Hall.

Dubnyk stopped 27 shots.
