PHOENIX, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Claude Lemieux's goal with 24 seconds left in overtime lifted the Phoenix Coyotes to their third straight victory, 2-1 over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night.
Lemieux took a feed from Shane Doan, who had his shot stopped by goaltender Dwayne Roloson but picked up the rebound and fed his teammate at the left side of the net. Lemieux poked the puck in the net for his sixth goal of the season and second game-winner.
Doan had a hand in the Coyotes' other goal, collecting a rebound of Krystofer Kolanos' shot before feeding Brad May at the left side of the crease. May tipped the puck past Roloson for his third goal of the season and first in the last six games.
Phoenix won for the fourth time in its last six tries (4-1
1) and improved to 6-1-1-2 at America West Arena.
Coyotes goaltender Robert Esche stopped 24 shots for his first win in four decisions this season.
