Oilers best slumping Panthers to end skid
Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Mark Arcobello scored his first two NHL goals, the second coming on a power play 1:55 into overtime, to lift the Edmonton Oilers to a 4-3 win over the equally struggling Florida Panthers at BB&T Center.
Florida forward Scottie Upshall forced overtime with a pair of third-period goals, but tripped Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 32 seconds into the extra session.
Arcobello planted himself in the left circle and hammered home a feed from Ales Hemsky behind Jacob Markstrom.
Taylor Fedun scored in his NHL debut for the Oilers, who prevailed in a matchup of two teams that entered Tuesday's play on five-game losing streaks.
Devan Dubnyk, back after missing three games with an ankle injury, made 20 saves in Edmonton's fifth consecutive road win against the Panthers.
Markstrom was beaten four times on 27 shots.
