ANAHEIM (AP) – Lauri Korpikoski gave Phoenix the lead for good with his second goal of the game, and Taylor Pyatt and David Schlemko also scored in the Coyotes’ 5-2 victory over the
Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night.
Shane Doan added an empty-net goal with 42 seconds remaining and two assists. Ilya Bryzgalov made 36 saves against his former club to help the Coyotes earn a split of the six-game season series and move into a tie with Los Angeles for fourth place in the Western Conference.
Corey Perry scored both Anaheim goals and Dan Ellis stopped 17 of 21 shots through two periods before he was replaced by Ray Emery.
The 10th-place Ducks are two points and two positions behind eight-place Calgary and the postseason cutoff in the West.
