Lindholm scores twice, Anaheim Ducks beat Coyotes for 16th win in 17 games

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Hampus Lindholm scored two goals, and the steamrolling Anaheim Ducks won for the 16th time in 17 games with a 5-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

Ryan Getzlaf scored his 23rd goal of the season in the Ducks' sixth straight win. Sami Vatanen and Dustin Penner also scored as the Ducks swept the season series with the Coyotes 5-0.

Jonas Hiller made 28 saves in his 13th straight win for Anaheim, the longest streak since Detroit's Chris Osgood did it in 1996.

Thomas Greiss started in goal for Phoenix but was lifted for Mike Smith after the Ducks scored three times in a span of 5:11 in the second period.

Lauri Korpikoski, Martin Hanzal and Mike Ribeiro scored for the Coyotes.

Quote of the Day

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
