Recap


Oilers 4, Panthers 3 (OT): Mark Arcobello scored his first two NHL goals - including the winner on the power play 1:55 into overtime - as visiting Edmonton snapped a five-game winless streak

Ales Hemsky set up Arcobello at the left circle for a one-timer that beat Florida goaltender Jacob Markstrom after Scottie Upshall went off for tripping. Defenseman Taylor Fedun recorded his first goal in his NHL debut, Philip Larsen also tallied and Boyd Gordon had three assists for Edmonton. Devan Dubnyk turned aside 20 shots in the win.
 
Upshall scored twice in the third period, including a goal with 58 seconds left in regulation on a knuckleball from the top of the left circle to tie it at 3-3.  Marcel Goc registered a goal and an assist and Markstrom made 23 saves for Florida, which saw its winless streak stretch to six games (0-2-4).

Goc gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead 10:35 into the contest, coming off the bench through the high slot and hammering home a pass from Jonathan Huberdeau. Edmonton tied it while skating 4-on-4 as Larsen knocked in a cross-ice pass from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins on the rush with 3:01 left in the opening period to break a scoreless stretch of 177:47.

Arcobello, who had 10 assists in his first 10 NHL games, lifted a shot from left of the net over Markstrom’s shoulder 2:06 into the second. Fedun added to the advantage by moving down the right wing and flipping home Nugent-Hopkins' feed.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Fedun suffered a broken right leg in a preseason contest Sept. 30, 2011 while racing to his end in an attempt to prevent an icing call. He missed all of that season and played in the American Hockey League the entire 2012-13 campaign. … Florida C Scott Gomez was scratched for the first time after recording one goal and three assists in 14 games. … Edmonton LW Ryan Smyth returned to the lineup after missing the last six contests with a groin injury.
