Anaheim 6, Phoenix 1

ANAHEIM, Calif - Zenon Konopka, Dustin Penner (2), Chris Kunitz, Teemu Selanne and Joffrey Lupul all tallied for Anaheim as the Ducks downed the Phoenix Coyotes, 6-1, on Wednesday night at the Arrowhead Pond.

The contest started out with the Ducks killing four-straight penalties.

“Our penalty killers gave us a chance to get our game going,” said Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle.  “We came out and played a strong second period to get a little something going for ourselves.  By no means is it ever easy, though the score might indicate that.”

Lupul started the scoring with a shot from a bad angle to the right of goaltender David LeNeveu.  The puck got between LeNeveu and the post to give the Ducks the lead with 40 seconds remaining in the first period.

Selanne scored his team-leading 15th goal of the season and Chris Kunitz scored his 2nd just eight seconds apart to give the Ducks a 3-0 lead in the second period.

The eight seconds between goals is the fastest in team history, surpassing the record set on December 13, 2000 when Paul Kariya and German Titov hooked up for goals in a 10 second span in a 5-4 win against Columbus.

Selanne (15, McDonald, Penner) got the Ducks up 2-0 when center Andy McDonald fed him with a pass across LeNeveu's crease for a tap-in goal on the far post at 5:44 of the second period.

Off the ensuing face off, Todd Marchant fed Kunitz (2, Marchant, Salei) as the center streaked across the Coyotes blue line, between the Phoenix defensemen and in alone on LeNeveu to give the Ducks a 3-0 lead at 5:52 of the second period.

“They worked harder than we did, they were more physical than we were and the 6-1 score was flattering,” said Coyotes head coach Wayne Gretzky.  “They were playing us right into the ice.”

Penner (1, Unassisted) scored his first career NHL goal at 17:07 of the second period when the rookie forward streaked down the right wing to beat LeNeveu to give the Ducks the four-goal lead.

“I was on the power play and had a lot of open ice, said Penner.  “I was just taking my time getting up there, seeing if I could get some guys coming with me to make it a 3-on-1. Once I got close enough, I thought I might as well shoot.”

Phoenix's Mike LeClerc (9, Johnson, Gauthier) scored at 2:06 of the third period for the Coyotes' only goal.

Penner (2, R. Niedermayer, Hedstrom) scored his second of the game on the power play at 10:46 to give the Ducks a 5-1 lead and Konopka (2, Salei, Moen) tipped home a shot by defenseman Ruslan Salei on the power play to cap the scoring for Anaheim.

“Once you get one, the weight is taken off your shoulder and the game gets easier after that,” said Penner.

The Ducks are now 4-1 against the Coyotes on the season.  Anaheim is 3-0 on this current five-game homestand and will face the Atlanta Thrashers at the Arrowhead Pond on Saturday night at 7:30 PM.

NOTES: Tonight’s win was the 200th win at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim.  The Ducks are 200-177-72 all-time at the Pond…In 14 games this month, the Ducks killed 88-of-96 shorthanded situations (91.7%), posting the NHL’s best penalty kill in the month of November…Teemu Selanne extended his goal streak (5-0=5 points) to five games – the longest by a Ducks player this season… Joffrey Lupul extended his point/goal streak (2-1=3) to two games.
