Ducks 2, Coyotes 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Joe DiPenta scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period, fellow defenseman Ric Jackman connected on a power play, and the Anaheim Ducks beat Phoenix 2-1 Wednesday night for their 10th straight home victory over the Coyotes.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 24 shots, allowing a goal by Phoenix captain Shane Doan. Anaheim is 16-1-1 with a tie in the last 18 matchups between the teams and has taken six of the first seven meetings this season.

The Ducks have 40 victories and lead the Pacific Division with 91 points. They are three wins and seven points from equaling the franchise record in both categories, set last season.

Anaheim played without Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Chris Pronger, who broke the big toe on his left foot during a workout following Sunday's victory against Nashville and is expected to be sidelined at least two weeks.

Right wing Owen Nolan, the Coyotes' second-leading scorer, missed his second straight game because of a shoulder injury that has plagued him the last few weeks.

GAME PREVIEW:

 


Dustin Penner is riding a four-game goal streak, the longest by a rookie in club history.
The Ducks go for their 10th straight home victory over the Coyotes when the Pacific Division rivals meet tonight.

 

Anaheim is 21-5-7 at home this season and looking to tie its season-best four-game winning streak there. The Ducks' current eight-game homestand, tied for the longest in club history, began with impressive wins over San Jose and Nashville.

 

Anaheim (39-17-11) trailed the Predators by two goals in the first period on Sunday before rallying for a 3-2 shootout win. Teemu Selanne scored in regulation and had the deciding goal in the shootout for the Ducks, who outshot Nashville 35-14, including 16-3 over the third period and overtime.

 

Division-leading Anaheim has won four of its last five and earned a point in nine of 10 - a stretch that began with a 5-4 overtime win over the Coyotes (27-35-3) on Feb. 15. Selanne recorded two goals and an assist in that victory, including the game-winner to help the Ducks overcome a three-goal deficit. He has seven goals and eight assists in the last 10 games.

 

The veteran right wing has four goals and nine assists in six matchups with Phoenix this season, and 63 points in 54 games. Anaheim rookie left wing Dustin Penner also scored in the Ducks' latest win over the Coyotes and forced overtime Sunday with his third-period goal.

 

He is riding a four-game goal streak, the longest by a rookie in club history, with five in that span. Penner's 24 goals this season are also a team record for a rookie and he is three points shy of matching the club mark of 41, set by Chris Kunitz last season.

 

"I'm playing a lot different game now than I was in my first and second year as a pro," Penner said. "You have to find that area of the game that you can hang your hat on, and mine is down low in the corners, using my size and creating space for other players."

 

He will try to continue that play against the Coyotes, who Anaheim has outscored 40-19 in nine consecutive home wins. The Ducks are 15-1-1 with a tie in the last 18 overall matchups between the teams and have taken five of six meetings this season, converting 39.3 percent of their power-play opportunities.

 

The Coyotes have dropped nine of their last 11, including a 4-3 defeat to Columbus on Saturday. Keith Ballard assisted on Shane Doan's first-period goal and gave Phoenix a 2-1 lead when he scored early in the second, but the Coyotes gave up three unanswered goals en route to the loss.

 

Phoenix's first two goals came on the power play, and the Coyotes are 7-for-16 with the man advantage over their last four games.

 

"We capitalized early in the game and had the opportunity late, but we didn't utilize the chances," Coyotes coach Wayne Gretzky. "There was not a lack of effort on our part. I thought we tried everything we could to get the goal."

 

The Coyotes will likely find it difficult to boost that offense as Anaheim goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere is 14-7-1 with a tie and a 2.28 goals-against average in 24 games against them - his most wins versus any opponent. Giguere has won five straight home meetings with Phoenix, posting a 2.18 GAA.
