Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Sergei Fedorov scored less than a minute into overtime to lift the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim to a 3-2 win over Phoenix at Glendale Arena.
Garrett Burnett and Cam Severson also scored for the Mighty Ducks, who snapped a four-game losing streak. Ilja Bryzgalov made 26 saves in his first NHL start.
"[In this league] you need a little bit more concentration," Bryzgalov said.
Shane Doan and Daymond Langkow posted goals for the Coyotes, who suffered their fifth straight loss and are winless in their last 13 (0-8-2-3). The club is also winless under interim head coach Rick Bowness (0-7-1-3). Brent Johnson stopped 25 shots.
Fedorov registered his 26th goal of the season 29 seconds into overtime on a high wrist shot from the slot. A video review was necessary to secure the victory for Anaheim, which snapped a four-game winless streak in the series (0-3-1).
Burnett's first NHL goal, a tip-in of a shot by Lance Ward from the right point, put Anaheim ahead 1-0 with 6:21 to go in the first period.
Doan delivered his 24th of the season on the power play to tie it for Phoenix. He converted the rebound of a shot by Derek Morris from the slot less than a minute into the second.
A power-play tally by Severson, his third goal of the season, put the Ducks ahead 2-1 midway through the period. He gathered his own rebound in the crease and scored on a low wrist shot
However, Langkow beat Bryzgalov with an unassisted goal for his 21st of the season with 3:31 left in the second to pull Phoenix even. Langkow's apparent backhand pass through the slot to Doan was deflected into the net.
During a scoreless third period, Anaheim held a 7-3 shots advantage.
"We found a way to lose another game," Doan said. "We didn't play desperate enough in the third period to win."
