Duclair leads Coyotes to OT win over Senators


OTTAWA - Anthony Duclair did everything he could to keep the lowly Arizona Coyotes rolling.

Duclair completed a hat trick with the overtime winner to give the Coyotes a 3-2 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday afternoon for back-to-back Arizona victories.

"I think it was a well earned win to be honest," said Duclair. "We carried that momentum from the Montreal game and all four lines were rolling and we just played a solid 60 minutes."

Midway through the third period, with the Coyotes on the power play, Condon dove to make the save, but whiffed on the puck leaving an easy play for Duclair for his second of the game to make it 2-2.

"I saw an opportunity to make a play, it was the right decision, and I just didn't execute it and missed the puck," said Condon. …
