Ducks edge Coyotes, 3-2


Corey Perry's redirection of a pass from Ryan Getzlaf proved the difference as the Ducks held off a late push by the Phoenix Coyotes and held on for a 3-2 victory Sunday at the Honda Center.

Bobby Ryan earned his third assist of the game after he was knocked down behind his own net and managed to get up and feed a pass to Getzlaf. The Ducks' captain skated up the left side and held the puck before timing a pass to Perry, who redirected it past Jason LaBarbera at 14:23 of the third period.

The Ducks had led, 2-0, after two periods but Phoenix pulled even on goals by Scottie Upshall and Eric Belanger and jammed the net in the final seconds in a desperate attempt to score again. Jonas Hiller made 36 saves in net for the Ducks.

Getzlaf had two assists and Perry had a goal and an assist. The Ducks (2-3-1) finished the game without rookie defenseman Cam Fowler, who suffered facial cuts and a possible broken nose in the second period.
