GLENDALE, ARIZ. - Special teams have been anything but for the Edmonton Oilers this season, who were once again burnt by their inability to kill a penalty or score on the power play.

That’s never a good combination for a hockey team.

Saturday afternoon, the Oilers gave up a pair of power play goals in the third period, losing 5-4 to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Keith Yandle scored to tie the game in the third, then Oliver Ekman-Larsson added the winner, both on the power play to hand the Oilers their second consecutive loss.

Martin Hanzal, Michael Stone and David Schlemko added the others for the Coyotes in the win. Tyler Pitlick, Will Acton, David Perron and Ryan Jones scored for the Oilers, while Jason LaBarbera took the loss in goal.

Pitlick opened the scoring in the first period with the first of his career.
