GLENDALE, Ariz., March 2 (UPI) -- Lauri Korpikoski scored twice and Mike Smith made three saves in a shootout Saturday, elevating the Phoenix Coyotes over Anaheim 5-4.

Korpikoski's second goal of the game 15 seconds into the third period lifted the Coyotes into a 3-3 tie.

After Saku Koivu's subsequent tally put the Ducks back in front, Steve Sullivan found the net with 7 1/2 minutes left to knot the game again.

Following a scoreless overtime, the game went to shootout.

Sullivan scored while Smith turned aside Nick Bonino, Corey Perry and Koivu to hand the Coyotes a victory in the first of three straight games against Pacific Division-leading Anaheim.

Smith finished with 31 saves in the victory.

Andrew Cogliano supplied a hat trick while Koivu finished with a goal and a helper for the Ducks.

Viktor Fasth turned aside 33-of-37 shots in the loss.
