Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal late in the third period as the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Sharks 2-1 in a preseason game Friday night in Glendale, Ariz.
Ekman-Larsson scored with 2:28 left on a wrister from the left circle after taking a pass from David Rundblad.
Phoenix's Radim Vrbata scored late in the second period.
He got Alex Stalock to drop to his knees with a deke and then squeezed a shot between the goalie's skate and the far post on a wraparound.
The Sharks' Bracken Kearns scored early in the third period, one-timing a shot past Thomas Greiss after a scramble in Phoenix's end.
Greiss, signed as Mike Smith's backup in the offseason, stopped 25 shots.
Stalock, competing to be Antti Niemi's backup, had 24 saves.
