ANAHEIM, Calif., Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Jean-Sebastien Giguere grabbed a share of the league lead with his fourth shutout of the month and defenseman Niclas Havelid scored twice Sunday night to lead the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim to a team-record sixth straight home win, 4-0 over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Matt Cullen added a power-play goal and an assist for Anaheim, which had won five in a row at home on three separate occasions. The Ducks have taken six of their last seven overall to move past Los Angeles into second place in the Pacific Division.

Giguere, who has been in the net throughout Anaheim's 7-3-0 December, joined Toronto's Ed Belfour and Dallas' Marty Turco atop the NHL with a career-high five shutouts. He made 24 saves, eight in each period, and bounced back from Thursday's 5-4 loss at Los Angeles.

Havelid recorded his second career two-goal game. He capped the Ducks' three-goal first period, then got their second power-play tally of the night early in the third.
