Mark Arcobello missed on a lot better scoring chances this season.

But the Edmonton Oilers forward finally picked up his first NHL goal, then added another in overtime in a 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers Tuesday on what turned out to be puck collectors’ night.

Arcobello scored 1:55 into the extra frame after the Oilers had blown a two-goal third period lead.

Tyler Fedun also scored his first NHL goal, making his regular-season debut, while Philip Larsen scored his first as an Oilers, helping the team snap a five-game losing skid.

A few more first and they may have run out of pucks with all the ones the Oilers were keeping.

Once up by a pair, the Oilers were able to hold off the Panthers, as Devan Dubnyk, returning from an ankle injury, made 20 saves for the victory.

Marcel Goc and Scottie Upshall, with a pair, scored the lone for the Panthers.

Goc opened the scoring in the first period, left unattended in the high slot and wiring a shot
