Perry Scores Winner, Ducks Beat Coyotes
ANAHEIM (AP) — Corey Perry deflected Ryan Getzlaf’s centering feed past Jason LaBarbera with 5:37 left, and Jonas Hiller made 36 saves in the Anaheim Ducks’ 3-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday night.
Cam Fowler and Toni Lydman also scored, Perry added an assist, and Bobby Ryan had three assists to help the Ducks improve to 2-3-1.
They rebounded from a 5-4 shootout loss to Atlanta on Friday night in which they failed to protect a two-goal lead by surrendering a pair of power-play goals in the third period.
The Ducks also had a two-goal edge against the Coyotes, but made things interesting by giving up goals to Scottie Upshall and Eric Belanger in the third.
The Coyotes, coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to Detroit at home Saturday night, dropped to 1-2-1.
