GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Ray Whitney scored two goals and added an assist to help the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Anaheim Ducks 6-2 on Saturday night.
Lee Stempniak had a goal and two assists, Adrian Aucoin and Sami Lepisto each added a goal and assist, and Taylor Pyatt also scored for the Coyotes, who won their fourth straight. Phoenix is 6-0-1 in its past seven and has risen from 11th place to fourth in the Western Conference.
The Coyotes were without defenseman Ed Jovanovski, who sustained an undisclosed lower body injury on a hit from Toronto’s Mike Brown on Thursday.
Matt Beleskey and Corey Perry scored for the Ducks, whose three-game winning streak was snapped. Anaheim has lost only twice in eight games.
