GLENDALE - Steve Sullivan scored the tying goal with 6:28 remaining in regulation and then netted the lone goal in the shootout to lift the Phoenix Coyotes over the Anaheim Ducks 5-4 on Saturday night.

Lauri Korpikoski scored twice, Matthew Lombardi added a goal, and Mike Smith stopped 31 shots through overtime and then all three shootout attempts.

Andrew Cogliano had three goals for his second NHL hat trick, and Saku Koivu added a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who lost for just the fifth time in 20 games.

The teams were playing the first of three consecutive games against each other.

The Ducks spent the final 1:58 of overtime on their third power play, but they were turned away by Smith. In the shootout, Smith stopped Nick Bonino, Corey Perry and Koivu.

Cogliano opened the scoring 21 seconds in, taking a pass from Koivu from behind the net and scoring on a one-timer from the top left edge of the crease.

Lombardi tied it at 10:30, corralling Raffi Torres' wide shot off the back boards and bouncing the puck off goalie Viktor Fasth's chest.

Korpikoski made it 2-1 at 12:32 of the period when Fasth missed the puck with his glove on a shot from the top of the left circle, but Cogliano answered 27 seconds later to tie it again.

Cogliano completed his hat trick at 17:26 of the second after Daniel Winnik muscled Derek Morris off the puck and backhanded a pass to the low slot.

• Bruins 3, Lightning 2: In Boston, Brad Marchand scored a tiebreaking goal on the power play with 2:16 left in the third period, completing Boston's comeback from a two-goal deficit and extending the Bruins' winning streak to six straight.

• Penguins 7, Canadiens 6: In Montreal, Brandon Sutter's second goal of the game 52 seconds into overtime lifted Pittsburgh to a wild win.

• Sabres 4, Devils 3, SO: In Buffalo, N.Y., Jason Pominville scored twice in regulation and added a shootout goal, and Buffalo extended its winning streak to three games.

• Hurricanes 6, Panthers 2: In Raleigh, N.C., Jussi Jokinen scored twice and added an assist, and Riley Nash had a three-point night as Carolina moved into sole possession of first place in the Southeast Division.

• Capitals 3, Jets 0: In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Braden Holtby stopped 35 shots, and Mike Ribeiro had a goal and an assist.
