Phoenix 3, Ducks 2, OT.

Ryan Getzlaf and Bobby Ryan scored goals, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 22 saves, but Jim Vandermeer’s second goal of the game at 1:18 of overtime lifted the Phoenix Coyotes to a 3-2 victory at Honda Center.

Corey Perry assisted on Nick Boynton’s late goal, giving him a franchise-record and NHL-leading 18 straight games with a point.

With time running out on the Ducks’ three-game winning streak (and Perry’s point streak), Ryan deflected a shot from the right point past Ilya Bryzgalov at 18:06 of the third period. Perry was credited with the secondary assist.

Getzlaf’s goal came with the Ducks holding a 5-on-4 power play at 5:12 of the second period.
