GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -Shane Doan and Fredrik Sjostrom scored 13 seconds apart late in the third period to lead Phoenix to a 2-0 victory over Anaheim on Saturday night.

The Ducks, winners of 12 of their last 14 overall, had won 10 of their last 11 against Phoenix. Anaheim was shut out for the second time this season.

Mike Comrie fired a long shot from just inside the blue line which goalie Jean-Sebastian Giguere kicked onto Doan's stick just inside the right faceoff circle. Doan then fired the rebound into the open right side of the net for a 1-0 lead with 5:02 to play.

Phoenix won the ensuing faceoff, quickly moving the puck deep into the Anaheim zone. Sjostrom made it 2-0 when he redirected Keith Ballard's one-timer past Giguere.

The Ducks' best scoring chance came midway through the third period when Teemu Selanne bounced a hard wrist shot off the right post.

Giguere made 30 saves for the Ducks, who were held without a point for only the fifth time in 38 games this season. The goalie was pulled with 2:06 remaining in favor of an extra attacker, but Tellqvist made three saves over the final 2 minutes to preserve the victory.

Notes: Phoenix's last victory against Anaheim was Nov. 12, 2005, a 2-1 overtime win in Glendale. ... Doan's goal was his first since Nov. 30, a span of nine games. ... Coyotes C Jeremy Roenick was a late scratch after leaving the team Saturday because of a "personal family illness." Roenick's absence was approved by general manager Mike Barnett and coach Wayne Gretzky, unlike his early departure from the arena in Vancouver on Dec. 12 after he was scratched from the lineup.
