GLENDALE, Ariz. - Keith Yandle scored his second goal with 6.5 seconds showing on the overtime clock and set up Mikkel Boedker's tying goal with 70 seconds left in regulation, helping the Phoenix Coyotes rally for a 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

Phoenix dominated most of the opening period, ripping off 15 shots, before the Oilers scored three goals in a little over seven minutes spanning the first and second periods.

The Coyotes tied it after pulling goalie Thomas Greiss, with Yandle setting up Boedker on a nifty give-and-go. Yandle ended it when he fought off a defender to beat former teammate Ilya Bryzgalov.

Phoenix earned a point in its sixth straight game, all in overtime.

David Perron had a goal and assist, and Taylor Hall set up all three of Edmonton's goals. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nick Schultz also scored.
