GLENDALE, Ariz. - Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal late in the third period and the Phoenix Coyotes closed out their preseason schedule with a 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday night.

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.

San Jose's 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 off-season, stopped 25 shots.

Stalock, competing to be Antti Niemi's backup, had 24 saves.
