GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Corey Perry scored his team-leading 20th goal and Jonas Hiller made 31 saves to lead the Anaheim Ducks past the Phoenix Coyotes 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Luca Sbisa and Joffrey Lupul also scored for the Ducks, who won for the second time in six games.

Shane Doan scored a power-play goal for the Coyotes, who have lost three of four.

The Coyotes played their first home game since the Glendale City Council approved a new arena lease.

That cleared the way for the team to be purchased from the NHL.

The game drew a crowd of 14,032, the largest this season for a weeknight home game.
