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

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
