ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Travis Moen and Andy McDonald scored the tying and go-ahead goals less than 1½ minutes apart in the third period, Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves and the Anaheim Ducks beat Phoenix 2-1 Wednesday night for their ninth straight home win over the Coyotes.
Curtis Joseph stopped the first 29 shots he faced and was trying to make Fredrik Sjostrom's first-period goal stand up when the Pacific Division leaders finally got on the board with 12:27 to play. Joseph stopped Moen's 15-foot backhander in the slot, but the Ducks' forward regained possession in the right corner and skated into the circle before scoring his seventh goal of the season on a wrist shot.
Phoenix defenceman Travis Roche received an interference penalty on a delayed call preceding Moen's goal, and the Ducks capitalized on the ensuing power play.
