ST. LOUIS (AP) Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored 56 seconds into overtime and Mike Smith made 37 saves to give the Phoenix Coyotes a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.

Ekman-Larsson, who had an assist on Phoenix's first goal, took a pass from Mike Ribeiro and beat goalie Jaroslav Halak with a shot from just inside the blue line.

Smith had faced the most shots of any NHL goalie coming into the game (516). He saw another 39 in this one, including 13 in the third period.

David Moss and Mikkel Boedker had the other Phoenix goals.

Maxim Lapierre and Roman Polak scored for the Blues. Halak made 16 saves.
