LAst Night's Action: Ducks Pull One Out
Anaheim Ducks defeat Phoenix Coyotes 3-2. For the second consecutive game, the Ducks led by two goals going in to the third period only to cough up the lead. Unlike Friday night’s game against the Thrashers, Corey Perry gave the lead back to the Ducks on a great feed from Ryan Getzlaf with 5:37 left in the period to put the Ducks on top. The Ducks tried their best to get the game to overtime allowing the Coyotes to take eight shots on goal thereafter, but Jonas Hiller stopped them all to give the Ducks the two points.
After a scoreless first period, rookie Cam Fowler scored the first goal of his career 3:41 in the second period to give the Ducks the lead. Toni Lydman added a goal, his second goal in two games, six minutes later for the two-goal advantage. But Scottie Upshall and Eric Belanger scored at 1:01 and 11:19 in the third period to tie things up.
Fowler had to be helped off the ice 8:45 in the second period after being hit into the boards by Shane Doan. He didn’t return to the game with a facial injury.
