GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg scored 58 seconds into overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday night. Seidenberg's shot from the middle of the rink at the blue line, deflected off the stick of Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris and found its way between the pads of goalie Jason LaBarbera. It was Boston's first win after regulation that wasn't settled in a shootout. The defending Stanley Cup champion Bruins have 11 wins of 13 games and 21 of 24 to move back on top of the Eastern Conference, one point ahead of the New York Rangers. Phoenix, which has dropped three straight, has won only three of 10. David Krejci gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead 47 seconds into the game on the team's first shot. Ray Whitney tied it with 4:44 left in the first period. Krejci struck first with a quick wrist shot from the blue line that beat LaBarbera to the stick side. The Bruins showed off a tight-checking game. Always around the puck, they limited the Coyotes to few good scoring opportunities, but Whitney connected. Taking a pass from Daymond Langkow, Whitney, crashing down the slot, split defensemen Zdeno Chara and Johnny Boychuk and beat goalie Tuukka Rask to the glove side to tie it. The goal was Whitney's third in three games. Langkow earned just his third point in 16 games. Outshooting the Bruins 8-7 in the middle season, the Coyotes had two opportunities to break the deadlock. During a power play, Keith Yandle set up Whitney across the blue line. Whitney got behind the defense but couldn't get in position for a good shot. Late in the period, defenseman David Schlemko's drive from the right circle was stopped by Rask's pads. LaBarbera stopped 15 of 16 shots through two periods. NOTES: The Coyotes had their second sellout in 19 home games. . This was the first meeting between the teams since they met in Prague to open last season. Only 13 Coyotes remain on the roster from that two-game set. . Boston's Claude Julien coached his 600th NHL game.
