Saku Koivu gets 2nd goal in OT, and Anaheim Ducks beat Phoenix 3-2 for 10th straight victory

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Saku Koivu scored two goals, including the game-winner 51 seconds into overtime, to lift the Anaheim Ducks to their 10th straight victory, 3-2 over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

Anaheim improved its Pacific-Division leading record to 28-7-5 and went to 14-0-2 at Honda Center this season.

The Ducks are the only team in the NHL this season not to lose at home in regulation.

Andrew Cogliano gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead with his 11th goal of the season on a deflected shot in front early in the third period, with Koivu getting an assist.

Martin Hanzal and Keith Yandle scored in the final five minutes of regulation to earn a point for the Coyotes, who have lost all four meetings with Anaheim this season.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
