Keller scores 22 seconds into OT for Coyotes in win against Red Wings


GLENDALE, Ariz. — Clayton Keller scored 22 seconds into overtime for the Arizona Coyotes in a 2-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings at Gila River Arena on Saturday.

Scott Wedgewood made 33 saves, and Ryan Dzingel scored the tying goal in the third period for the Coyotes (3-13-2), who are 2-0-1 in their past three games.

Dylan Larkin scored, and Alex Nedeljkovic made 27 saves for the Red Wings (8-9-3), who finished 0-3-1 on a four-game road trip.

Keller couldn’t score on his initial shot that deflected to Jakob Chychrun, whose follow-up attempt rebounded to an open Keller near the right post.

Larkin scored his fifth goal in five games and ninth of the season on a short breakaway set up by Lucas Raymond‘s lead pass from the neutral zone at 8:41 of the first period.

Larkin has seven points (five goals, two assists) during a five-game point streak.

Dzingel tied it 1-1 at 13:31 of the third, setting up in the slot to redirect Cam Dineen‘s shot. Dzingel’s goal was his second in as many games after he scored two in his previous 27 games. Dineen’s assist was the first point of his NHL career.

Detroit couldn’t score during two power plays 36 seconds apart in the second period resulting from penalties on Coyotes forward Jay Beagle (holding) and defenseman Ilya Lyubushkin (slashing).

Wedgewood, who has 75 saves in his past two games, needed on-ice medical attention during the second power play when he was struck in his collarbone by a 95-mph Robby Fabbri shot, but stayed in the game.
