Anaheim 2, Phoenix 1

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -Ilya Bryzgalov made 34 saves, and Teemu Selanne and Dustin Penner scored to help the Anaheim Ducks beat Phoenix 2-1 on Saturday night.

Zbynek Michalek scored for the Coyotes.

The Ducks dropped the "Mighty" from their name and changed their colors in the offseason, switching from purple and teal to black and orange. But they look the same to the Coyotes.

The Ducks went 7-0-1 against Phoenix last season. And they wasted little time trying to re-establish their dominance.

After Phoenix center Jeremy Roenick drew a roughing penalty, the Ducks took a 1-0 lead on Selanne's power-play goal at 2:15 of the first period.

Anaheim went up 2-0 with 2:15 left in the period. With the Ducks on a power play, Ryan Getzlaf fired a low shot at Curtis Joseph. Joseph kicked a rebound to Penner, who fired it past him.

The Coyotes sliced the lead to 2-1 on Michalek's power-play goal with 8 minutes left in the second period. The goal came on a two-man advantage, with Michalek taking a pass from Keith Ballard and beating Bryzgalov on a wrist shot from between the circles.

It was a testy, physical game between Pacific Division rivals, who combined for 46 penalty minutes.

In the first period, Phoenix's new tough guy, Georges Laraque, took exception to a hard check by Todd Fedoruk, and the two fought along the boards. In the second, the Coyotes' Dave Scatchard brawled with Shane O'Brien.

Notes: The Coyotes had a scare when Ladislav Nagy, who missed 29 games with a knee injury last year, crumpled to the ice and grabbed his left knee after a center-ice collision with Samuel Pahlsson. Nagy returned to the ice minutes later. ... A survey by Team Marketing Reports found that the Coyotes' average ticket price, $25, is the NHL's lowest. ... The Ducks, have upgraded a team that finished with the most wins (43) and points (98) in team history. They acquired defenseman Chris Pronger, the former league MVP and Norris Trophy winner, in a trade with Edmonton. He joins another Norris winner, Scott Niedermayer, on the back line.
