GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Steve Sullivan scored the tying goal with 6:28 remaining in regulation and then netted the lone goal in the shootout to lift the Phoenix Coyotes past the Anaheim Ducks 5-4 on Saturday night. Lauri Korpikoski scored twice, Matthew Lombardi added a goal, and Mike Smith stopped 31 shots through overtime and then all three shootout attempts for the Coyotes, who won for the second time in three games. Andrew Cogliano had three goals for his second NHL hat trick, and Saku Koivu added a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who lost for just the fifth time in 20 games. The teams were playing the first of three consecutive games against each other. The Ducks spent the final 1:58 of overtime on their third power play, but they were turned away by Smith. In the shootout, Smith stopped Nick Bonino, Corey Perry and Koivu. Cogliano opened the scoring 21 seconds in, taking a pass from Koivu from behind the net and scoring on a one-timer from the top left edge of the crease. Lombardi tied it at 10:30, corralling Raffi Torres' wide shot off the back boards and bouncing the puck off goalie Viktor Fasth's chest. Korpikoski made it 2-1 at 12:32 of the period when Fasth missed the puck with his glove on a shot from the top of the left circle, but Cogliano answered 27 seconds later to tie it again. Cogliano completed his hat trick at 17:26 of the second after Daniel Winnik muscled Derek Morris off the puck and backhanded a pass to the low slot. Korpikoski pulled the Coyotes even at 3 just 16 seconds into the third period off a long pass from Antoine Vermette after the Coyotes center stole the puck from Ben Lovejoy. Cogliano helped draw a goaltender interference call against Kyle Chipchura with a subtle one-handed push to Chipchura's back just outside the crease. Koivu took a pass from Bobby Ryan between the circles and beat Smith with 3 seconds left in Chipchura's penalty to give the Ducks a 4-3 lead. NOTES: Anaheim was called for one penalty, a coincidental roughing minor on Koivu. . Cogliano's other hat trick was February 1, 2012, also in Glendale against the Coyotes. . Ducks C Kyle Palmieri left the game late in the first period because of an upper body injury and didn't return. . Coyotes captain Shane Doan assisted on Lombardi's goal, giving him 29 goals and 36 assists in a team-leading 89 career games against Anaheim. . Lombardi's goal was the 99th of his career. . Phoenix has played three straight against one team one other time, facing San Jose three times in six days. Anaheim, which never has played three consecutive games against the same team, will do it again in April against Dallas in a five-day span. . Anaheim D Sheldon Souray returned to the lineup after being a healthy scratch in the Ducks' 3-2 win over Minnesota on Friday.
