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.
