Antoine Vermette, who also scored in regulation, netted the lone goal of the shootout to help the Arizona Coyotes beat the San Jose Sharks 4-3 on Saturday night.

San Jose's Joe Pavelski scored on a power play to tie it midway through the third period. Brett Burns fired a shot from just inside the blue line that Pavelski redirected past Devan Dubnyk.

Shane Doan scored 52 seconds into the third to give the Coyotes a 3-2 lead. He followed Sam Gagner's shot and flipped in the rebound.

Vermette and David Schlemko scored in the first to put the Coyotes ahead en route to their third road win in four games.

Dubnyk stopped 40 shots for the Coyotes. Antti Niemi made 22 saves as the Sharks fell to 2-3-2 at home.

Tommy Wingels and Andrew Desjardins had goals in the second period to tie it for the Sharks.
