Arizona Coyotes fall to Anaheim Ducks 5-2


Even with a late push in the third period, there wasn’t enough firepower for the Arizona Coyotes to overcome the damage done by the Anaheim Ducks.  

The Coyotes (15-28-5) had an uneventful start through two periods at Mullett Arena on Tuesday, leading to a 5-2 loss. The first period didn’t see many quality scoring chances from either team. An early push from the Ducks in the second period created a hole for the Coyotes when the Ducks went up 3-0. 

Coyotes goaltender Connor Ingram couldn’t do much when Frank Vatrano slapped Troy Terry’s pass up high for the 1-0 lead near the end of the first period. Following Vatrano’s goal, the Ducks were energized and scored four consecutive goals before Barrett Hayton broke the shutout in the third period.
