GLENDALE, AZ -

Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored in overtime, Mike Smith stopped 25 shots and the Arizona Coyotes beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 Friday night for coach Dave Tippett's 500th career victory.
    
Both teams scored goals in the second period on caroms: Martin Hanzal early for Arizona, Mark Giordano late on a power play for Calgary.
    
The Coyotes withstood a long flurry to start overtime and wore the Flames down with one of their own late. Arizona won it with 39 seconds left on the clock when Brad Richardson sent a pass from behind the goal to Ekman-Larsson, and he one-timed it past Karri Ramos.
    
Ramos stopped 18 in his first loss in five career games against Arizona. The Flames lost for the first time in six 3-on-3 overtimes.
