Anaheim Ducks 5, Phoenix Coyotes 2

Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 30 shots and the Ducks beat Phoenix 5-2 on Saturday night for their first road victory of the season.

Giguere, bidding for this 26th career NHL shutout, lost the whitewash early in the final period. The 30-year-old netminder picked up his third win of the season to go with three losses and one tie.

The Ducks used a two goal flurry in a span of less than four minutes in the second period to create room for the victory. After Phoenix defeated St. Louis in its home opener, the Coyotes have not won on home ice since Oct. 4.

Corey Perry began the spurt by picking up a loose puck in front and lifting in a backhander at 4:58. Less then four minutes later, defenseman Mathieu Schneider's shot from the left point was tipped in by Brad May, his first of the season, giving the Ducks a 3-0 lead.

Midway through the opening session, the Ducks broke out on top. Skating with a two-man advantage, Schneider rifled in a 30-foot drive from the slot at 11:13 for a 1-0 Anaheim lead.

Late in the period, Chris Kunitz missed giving the Ducks a two-goal advantage when he hit the left post behind Alex Auld, the Phoenix goaltender. That represented the third Anaheim shot of the opening period that went behind Auld and deflected off the post.

The Coyotes' Radiim Vrbata broke Giguere's shutout bid when he tipped in Ed Jovanovski's shot trailing in the slot. The goal came at 2:29 of the third period.

Ryan Getzlaf put it out of reach with a power-play goal at 13:19 of the final period, making it 4-1. Jovanovski's power play at 18:08 brought Phoenix to within two.

Perry scored his second of the game after Auld was pulled, sending the puck the length of the rink at 19:35.

NOTES: With the victory, the Ducks have now won back-to-back games twice this season, with the previous two-game streak coming on Oct. 15 against Detroit and Oct. 17 against Nashville...Daniel Carcillo picked up 34 penalty minutes for Phoenix, including two fighting majors and two misconducts. ... Vrabata's goal tied the winger for the team lead in goals (4) with Carcillo and Fredrik Sjostrom.
