GLENDALE - 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, Matt Stone 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.

• Maple Leafs 4, Devils 2: In Toronto, Nazem Kadri continued his points streak Monday with a goal and an assist against the struggling Devils.

Clarke MacArthur, Jay McClement and Phil Kessel - with his first goal on home ice this season - scored in the third period for Toronto. Kadri connected in the first period and assisted on MacArthur's goal to earn points in his fifth straight game.

• Kings 5, Predators 1: In Los Angeles, Jeff Carter completed his fifth career hat trick with two goals in a 19-second span of the third period, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Nashville Predators despite taking only 16 shots on net.
