Oliver Ekman-Larsson, OT Wizard

Nobody in the NHL has been better at potting OT winners than Coyotes' D-man Oliver Ekman Larsson. Last night the 24-year-old Swede buried his 12th of the season at 4:51 of OT to cap off a Coyotes' comeback from two goals down in the third against Edmonton.

The Yotes have won four straight for the first time in over two years and are 8-1-2 in their last eleven. Max Domi broke a scoreless drought with his first career hat-trick and the win puts Arizona in second place in the Pacific Division. Domi has not scored a goal since December 4.

Arizona's power play is 13 for its last 36, and Ekman-Larsson is third among NHL defensemen with seven power play goals on the season. The Swede also leads all NHL defensemen in game-winning goals with six, which is second to only Sharks' center Joe Pavelski, who has seven GWG.
