GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Edmonton Oilers staggered into the desert with three straight losses and only one victory in eight games — and spotted the lowly Arizona Coyotes an early two-goal lead. Connor McDavid dominated without scoring and Darnell Nurse and Al Montoya provided unexpected help in the Oilers’ 4-2 victory Friday night. Nurse scored twice on rising slap shots from the left circle, and Montoya stopped all 19 shots he faced in relief of Cam Talbot for his first victory with the Oilers. “It proved we haven’t rolled over and played dead,” Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. Montoya made his second appearance after coming over from Montreal last week in a deal for a conditional draft pick.
