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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
