GLENDALE, Ariz., March 5 (UPI) -- Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored in the fifth round of a shootout Monday and the Phoenix Coyotes notched their second straight 5-4 win over Anaheim.

Matthew Lombardi provided a goal and assist while Shane Doan, Antoine Vermette and Keith Yandle also scored for Phoenix, which logged its second consecutive shootout win over the Ducks in the middle contest of three straight between the Pacific Division rivals.

Smith finished with 27 saves in the victory.

Ryan Getzlaff tallied with two assists while Corey Perry donated a goal and a helper for division-leading Anaheim.

Hiller turned aside 36-of-40 shots in the setback.
