GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored in the fifth round of the shootout and Mike Smith stopped Bobby Ryan to help the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-4 on Monday night. Andrew Vermette, Shane Doan, Matthew Lombardi and Keith Yandle scored for the Coyotes in regulation. Phoenix also beat the Pacific Division-leading Ducks 5-4 in a shootout Saturday night. Steve Sullivan also scored in the shootout for Phoenix, which has won three of four. Ryan Getzlaf had a goal, two assists and scored in the shootout, and Ryan, Corey Perry and Matt Beleskey scored for the Ducks, who have lost consecutive games for the first time this season. The teams traded four goals over a six-minute stretch of the third period. Perry had given the Ducks a 3-2 lead early in the period when he redirected Getzlaf's shot from the left circle past Smith. But Doan answered 11 seconds later, taking a pass from Kyle Chipchura and beating Jonas Hiller from just inside the right circle. Ryan put Anaheim back in front off a pass from Nick Bonino after Rostislav Klesla bounced an attempted clear off Andrew Cogliano to Smith's left. Again the Coyotes answered quickly, with Lombardi redirecting Matt Stone's shot between Hiller's pads 78 seconds later. Chipchura had the best opportunity in overtime, skating behind the Ducks' defense to take a long outlet pass with just over a minute left. Hiller made the pad save. Beleskey opened the scoring midway in the first period, slipping a shot between Smith's pads. Vermette tied the game 54 seconds into the second, putting home a long rebound off Hiller's left pad into the vacated left side of the net from the top of the crease. Phoenix took its first lead on Yandle's blast from the top of the left circle. Getzlaf evened the score 2-2 with 7.8 seconds to go in the second period, taking a pass from Perry after the right wing stole the puck from Yandle in the neutral zone. Hiller made 36 saves, while Smith finished with 27. NOTES: Doan's 324th career goal moved him past Keith Tkachuk into second place on the franchise's career list, trailing only Dale Hawerchuk. Doan also became the third player in WinnipegPhoenix history to score 800 career points. . Doan has 30 goals and 66 points in 90 career games against the Ducks. .
