Lindholm, Getzlaf keep Anaheim Ducks atop NHL standings with 5-2 win over Phoenix Coyotes

Thursday, 11.07.2013 / 12:45 AM The Canadian Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Hampus Lindholm scored his first NHL goal, Corey Perry got the tiebreaking goal right before the second-period buzzer, and the Anaheim Ducks stayed atop the league standings with a 5-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday night.

Ryan Getzlaf, Lindholm and Cam Fowler each had a goal and an assist in Anaheim's triumphant return from a successful eight-game road trip. With their sixth win in seven games, the Ducks (13-3-1) lead the NHL with 27 points.

Perry tipped home Lindholm's shot during a delayed penalty with 1.1 seconds left in the period, and Fowler provided a cushion with the second power-play goal of the night for the Ducks, whose NHL-worst power play had scored just four times all season.

Shane Doan scored and Michael Stone added a power-play goal for the Coyotes, who had won five straight.
