Glendale, Ariz. — Chalk up another victory for the steamrolling Anaheim Ducks and goalie Jonas Hiller.
Hampus Lindholm scored two goals, and the Ducks won for the 16th time in 17 games by beating the Phoenix Coyotes 5-3 on Saturday night.
Hiller made 28 saves in his 13th straight win, the NHL’s longest streak since Detroit’s Chris Osgood did the same in 1996. Only seven other goalies in league history have won 13 in a row.
“It’s definitely a great thing, but at the same time I’m really excited about winning with the team,” he said. “The personal things kind of put the cherry on the cake.”
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 five-game season series with the Coyotes.
“If you’re winning you really feel good about yourself and you kind of want to keep that feeling,” Hiller said. “Here everybody goes out believing that we can beat anybody in any stadium.”
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. Greiss had 19 saves, and Smith made six.
Lauri Korpikoski, Martin Hanzal and Mike Ribeiro scored for the Coyotes.
The Ducks improved their NHL-best record to 34-8-5 and 73 points. Phoenix has lost four of five.
“Right now we aren’t very good,” Coyotes captain Shane Doan said, “and we haven’t been very good for a while.”
Mathieu Perreault had three assists, and Corey Perry added two for the Ducks, who have scored at least four goals in each of their last six games. Radim Vrbata assisted on all three Phoenix goals.
Vatanen started Anaheim’s second-period barrage with a slap shot from the right point that slipped through Greiss’ legs to make it 2-1 with 14:16 left. Penner netted the next one, with a slap shot off a pass from Perry with 10:49 remaining. Getzlaf then got to a loose puck in the crease and scored to make it 4-1 with 9:05 to go.
“It was a good flurry,” Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. “Once we got the second goal, which might have been a little bit soft, I thought it sort of energized the team. Then we came on and get the third and you get the fourth. Things were going pretty smoothly there for a while.”
That was it for Greiss. Smith came on and gave up one goal in the third period. Lindholm scored a power-play goal with a shot that hit the camera just inside the net to put the Ducks ahead 5-1.
Hanzal scored with Phoenix on a 5-on-3 advantage, and Ribeiro added a final goal long after the game’s outcome had been determined.
That gave Boudreau something to complain about — “a sloppy finish.”
Boudreau said Hiller might be back in goal Sunday night against Detroit.
“I’ll talk to the goaltending coach on the plane,” Boudreau said. “We’ll talk to Hilly and see how he feels, and then we’ll make a decision.”
Phoenix took a 1-0 lead 3:57 into the game. Korpikoski’s shot from in front of the net was deflected by Hiller, but the puck came right back to Korpikoski, who knocked it in for his seventh goal of the season.
It was the fifth time in six games that Anaheim had allowed the first goal, and the Ducks have won all five.
Greiss made a diving stop of Nick Bonino’s shot but left the net open behind him. Lindholm, who had just three goals for the season before Saturday, got the deflection and scored to make it 1-1 with 7:33 left in the first period.
Phoenix was outscored 9-4 in consecutive home losses to Minnesota and Anaheim.
“We’re not a very cohesive group right now,” coach Dave Tippett said. “When you chase games all the time you look like an out-of-sort group, and that’s where we are.”
Tampa Bay 6, (at) Philadelphia 3: Valtteri Filppula scored the go-ahead goal during a wild second period and the Lightning stopped Philadelphia’s 10-game home winning streak. Ryan Malone had two goals, Alex Killorn, Teddy Purcell, and Martin St. Louis also scored goals for the Lightning, who moved into a tie with Boston for first place in the Atlantic Division.
(At) Montreal 2, Chicago 1 (OT): Andrei Markov scored two goals, including at 1:28 of overtime. Markov took a deflected pass from Max Pacioretty and found the roof of the net.
Columbus 6, (at) Winnipeg 3: Boone Jenner and Mark Letestu each scored twice to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets to extend the Jets’ losing streak to a season-high five. The Blue Jackets scored four straight goals in the second period and Curtis McElhinney made 28 saves and Columbus won its third straight.
Ottawa 2, (at) Nashville 2 (SO): Mika Zibanejad and Jason Spezza scored in the shootout. Kyle Turris scored in regulation for Ottawa, which has won five of its last six. Craig Anderson had 31 saves through overtime, and then stopped Craig Smith and David Legwand in the shootout.
(At) New Jersey 2, Florida 1 (OT): Marek Zidlicky scored with 2.1 seconds showing on the overtime clock. With just over 3 seconds to go, the Devils called a timeout before the final faceoff. Travis Zajac beat Marcel Goc on the draw, and Jaromir Jagr nudged the puck back to the top of the right circle to Zidlicky, who ripped a shot that beat screened goalie Tim Thomas.
Colorado 4, (at) Minnesota 2: Ryan O’Reilly scored twice, including the winner with 7:16 to play. Gabriel Landeskog and Maxime Talbot also scored for the Avalanche, winners in five of seven. O’Reilly had his first two-goal game of the season.
Pittsburgh 2, (at) Calgary 1: Chris Kunitz and Matt Niskanen scored, Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves and the Penguins handed Calgary a team record sixth consecutive regulation loss on home ice. It looked for the longest time as if Fleury was going to become the sixth goaltender in the past eight games to shut out the Flames before Mikael Backlund cut into a 2-0 deficit with a goal at 11:29 of the third period.
Boston 1, (at) San Jose 0: Carl Soderberg scored the lone goal with 7:35 remaining, and Tuukka Rask bounced back from rough stretch to post his NHL-leading fifth shutout of the season. Soderberg broke the tie at the end of a broken play when Loui Eriksson’s shot was blocked by Scott Hannan. Soderberg got the loose puck and knocked it past Antti Niemi for his sixth goal to salvage the finale of Boston’s three-game California swing.
